This past week at Mobile ID World we brought you top stories regarding the Internet of Things, Samsung’s smartphone rebound, the Apple Watch launch and the benefits biometics bring when paired with mobility.
Internet of Things
This week in IoT news we saw a lot of forward thinking. Could Twitter be an avenue for end users to interface with connected objects? Might IoT improve elder care? These questions were on our mind this week as we learned that Internet of Things will be a driver of datacenter growth.
This week Samsung talked Q1 2015, and it had good news: its smartphones are back on top of the market in terms of sales. Synaptics confirmed that its fingerprint sensors are being used on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, and Trustonic announced that its mobile security solution for Samsung KNOX is now available.
Last week ended with the launch of the Apple Watch, and this week we covered the fallout. It looks like the wearable’s odd rollout, that saw supply failing to meet a massive demand, may have been a result of a defect in the taptic engine – at least that’s what’s being speculated around the Internet. Meanwhile, Apple won a voice recognition lawsuit in China and saw its Touch ID security integrated into a banking app.
This past week the news was filled with examples of how biometrics and mobility can improve industries that adopt them. We reported on a future-proof mobile security platform, an award winning mobile physical access solution, and VoiceVault’s ViGo technology, which is bringing assurance to driver certification. In addition to that, we also saw two studies surface regarding how biometrics and mobility are changing the healthcare industries for the better.
