How Much Would You Pay for a Mobile Phone That Does Less? That and More in Five for Wednesday


  1. Your mobile phone can do a lot; for some people, it does too much. Punkt’s phone makes and receives phone calls, has a calendar, lets you make notes, and that’s about it. No Facebook, no Twitter, less frenzy, sweet design.
  2. For the first time ever, Chromebooks have outsold MacBooks. If you’re a Mac user wondering if it’s time to jump ship, read why this guy bought a Chromebook and “is never looking back.”
  3. Currently only available in India, we’re wondering if this iris-reading tablet from Samsung will usher in a new wave of biomorphic authentication.
  4. Samsung isn’t the only company that’s trying to steer the authentication issue in a new direction. Google wants to get rid of passwords entirely.
  5. Lastly, pay attention, tech students. Virtual Reality 101 is about to start.
