Another detail about an upcoming Samsung smartphone feature. The latest is that the phone will allow you to scroll through text by watching your eyes. Apparently when it sees that you have reached the bottom of the text it will scroll down to the next paragraph. Not sure that the Galaxy S4 will boast this feature, but it is one that the next iPhone won't possess. As the S4 release date gets closer, the wild claims of the next iPhone's feature set are also being ramped up. I suggest you wait until closer to the actual release date to find out what that model really offers.
The next big thing, or in this case small thing, from Apple could be the iWatch based on flexible glass. The fans are already drooling over the possibility. If the supplier is to be the usual Corning Glass Technologies, then devotees will be in for a wait as the president said they will not have the technology ready for another three years. Instead they could move to LG, who announced they will have the ability to mass produce flexible OLED displays by the second half of this year. If the iWatch does appear this year, it may run a cut-down version of iOS.
Over the years, watches have been made targeting a variety of uses but to date only the ones that tell the time and help scuba divers or other activity-based users have had any longevity. Many young people don't bother with a watch anymore, they just glance at their phone for the time. My prediction is that after the Apple-fan factor purchases wear off this will not be a widely used device.
