Face ID on the iPhone X is ‘pretty miraculous’ and ‘just works’, says Apple executive

iPhone X Face ID

When Craig Federighi tried to demo the iPhone X's new Face ID feature during Apple's special event last week, it didn't exactly go as planned. The iPhone X didn't unlock, and thinking quick on his feet, Federighi quickly picked up a nearby backup device and continued on with the presentation. According to Apple, the embarrassing misstep occurred because other Apple employees were handling the device in the build-up to the presentation. As Apple explained it: "Face ID was trying to authenticate their face. After failing a number of times, because they weren’t Craig, the iPhone did what it was designed to do, which was to require his passcode."

Porsche’s Mission E will cost $85,000 and will hit the streets in 2019

Porsche Mission E

That, however, will change once Porsche's highly anticipated Mission E hits the streets. Originally introduced back in 2015, the Mission E is an ambitious project to say the least. According to the German automaker, the goal is to outfit the Mission E with 310 miles of range, and equally as impressive, Porsche boasts that the Mission E will be able to reach a charge of 80% in just 15 minutes. While it remains to see what the Mission E's final specs are, we now know how much the car is going to cost -- and suffice it to say, it's not going to come cheap. Put simply, it's going to be priced like a Porsche.

Brave woman invents spray to attract Bigfoot, says it definitely works

bigfoot juice

Bigfoot — the big, hairy, human-like beast which has eluded capture and real observation for decades now — is out there, and all you need if you want to catch a glimpse of him for yourself is make yourself smell nice and bigfoot-y. That's the claim of one North Carolina woman who has developed what she calls Bigfoot Juice, and she insists that all you need is a bit of a spritz to make yourself irresistible to any bigfoot within a mile and a half. Yeah, this is real.
