A recent speech by President Obama stressed that providing wireless Internet access in even the most rural of locations is imperative to future economic growth. Obama’s proposal claims that it will cut the deficit by $9.6 billion in a decade, while doubling the wireless broadband spectrum. In other news, professor Alan Snyder invented a ‘thinking cap’ that makes those wearing it better at math and art. The headgear works by passing low levels of electricity through the brain, isolating the problem solving right hemisphere. Test subjects did better at math than those not wearing the device. And finally, researchers have figured out a way to infiltrate an iPhone’s security in 6 minutes. Without knowing your password, a hacker can install software that opens the phone to attacks. Once software is installed, the program can extract all sorts of personal information including any accounts you have linked to the phone.
