Poll time: Removable vs. Non-removable Battery?

The latest rumor regarding the alleged LG G4 Note is that it might feature a removable battery (unlike, say, Samsung's latest flagships). Our question for you today is: does it matter to you if a phone has a (non-)removable battery and how much does this feature influence your overall opinion on a smartphone?

I don't really care either way.

It's one of the most important specs.

Must be removable or I won't buy it because I like the option of adding high capacity batteries of my choosing.

Poll time! When buying a new smartphone, which feature do you pay most attention to?

Feel free to add your choice in the comments if it hasn't been listed (we do only get 5 spots, so it's more than likely you'll have your own answer). :)

iPhone Falls from a Plane, Lives to Tell the Tale

So, if an #iPhone   fell out of an airplane it surely wouldn't survive the crash, right? Wrong. A man called Ben Wilson — or rather his smartphone — is the living proof that statement there is not a fairy tale.

Apparently not that long ago he was flying in a small aircraft up at 9,300ft when his device decided to drop out of the plane (all right, it was the pressure change that caused the door to crack open, no one decided anything). It was only when Ben was back on the ground that he realized he was missing his iPhone. And so Ben's friend stepped in and used the Find My iPhone app which did exactly that — it revealed the phone was in Joplin, Texas, some 70 miles away.

Fast forward to the rural area in question (and a helping donkey that apparently pointed out the rogue iPhone) — and there it was, scratched and bruised, but still operational. Perhaps it'd been thanks to the case the phone was in or maybe the device is just that sturdy? We don't know but, hey, it makes for a pretty cool story to tell your grandkids.

Especially as there's a donkey in it.

I'm the exception to the rule of upgrades. I rarely play that game. I made my Palm Treo 600 & 650 last me for almost 10 years. So jumping from limited 2min videos to streaming, 4mb memory to 64mb, and the camera is awesome...well, I'm certainly not going to complain the slightest.

Draw on Paper, Save Notes Digitally and Then... Microwave Them?

Let's say for a second that you're a massive fan of technology (okay, let's say that's a fact) but you're still highly devoted to good ol' pen and paper? Because... why not have the best of both worlds? Yes, there's tons of us built that way. Well, Rocketbook aims to reconcile the two in the most entertaining way possible.

How? You get to write your notes with an actual pen on actual paper. Draw, doodle, brainstorm — heck, write an entire novel. And then, using your smartphone, you send the creation directly to your preferred storage cloud(s) and have it neatly stashed away. Traditional and digital — all in the same package.

Plus, the moment you decide you want to delete your notes, you don't need an eraser, you don't need another notebook to start afresh — all you need is a microwave. Yes, you heard right. As you'll be using Pilot Frixion pens, the way to erase your Rocketbook is to stick it in the microwave oven, hit the button and — presto! — you're left with a freshly baked, entirely empty Rocketbook.

Rocketbook has reached its funding goal on Indiegogo, so it's only a matter of time when we'll be able to get our hands on this analogue slash digital slash microwavable notebook.

Wake Up Your Computer — With Just Your Voice!

So, the new #Windows10   listens to you at all times. Wait, what? Well, apparently, in the future all you will need to do is shout "Hey, Cortana" or "Cortana, wake up" and your computer will be up and at 'em. 

How does this work? Inside Intel's newest Skylake chips there's a digital signal processor which can boot your PC up when it's in its low power state and once you've talked to Cortana, the digital assistant takes over. From then on, you can use all the usual voice commands and #Cortana   will gladly oblige.

What do you think? Does the fact Cortana hears all impress you or, perhaps, freak you out a little bit?

Cortana is useless and a privacy issue, along with other features in Win10, so that's been disabled!

BMW to Start Telling You When the Traffic Lights Will Change

For all the easily distracted drivers out there — here comes a really useful aid! Namely, #BMW   has recently revealed that they'll be installing the EnLighten app into their cars which are connected to #iOS   devices and support apps. But what does EnLighten do? It tells  you whether the next traffic light is red or green, which, hey, not insignificant at all!

Apart from that, there will also be a countdown to when the light will change and, as the app takes your speed into account, it notifies you whether you should slow down or keep going. Such a gizmo could prevent a potential car accident (blowing through red lights is the most common cause of urban crashes in the US!) and maybe keep the money you would throw away on a speeding ticket inside your pockets.

What do you think — should other car manufacturers consider integrating the EnLighten app into their vehicles too?
