Apple is changing and revamping technology to be useful for users every day, making things easier for the heavy iPhone carriers as well. Following the iPhone 5s release last September that featured a thumb scanner, many thought it wasn’t enough for privacy, as videos on YouTube revealed how to bypass the newly equipped scanner.
With another tech jump into the right path, it describes a system for using facial recognition and detection on a mobile or desktop computing device. The Android unlock option was something similar to this, which has been criticized before for its fallibility. Most importantly, it protects your phone in a lock screen from trespassers; but also determines how much information is shared on the lock screen for a user’s device. When the user is receiving a call and their iPhone recognizes them (determined by a number of factors, including skin tone, vectors, feature distance and size, etc.), it’ll display caller ID and information from the user’s contacts app.
If it’s not someone the phone contacts that isn’t listed as a user of the device, it’ll block all the data. This goes for personal emails, and messages among other things; so it’s safe to say you’re personal identity is covered. Check back with us for more details on Apple Inc.

Dallas at Chicago
Time: 8:30 PM (ET)
Not always do we see must win games in the NFL, but tonight is one of those rare occasions. The Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears both need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. The two are in tight division races and need to keep pace with wins in December. Something has to give tonight, as the teams have strong offense units while struggling at times on defense.
With Jay Cutler still out for the Bears, you would think this game leans towards the Cowboys; but it is the month of December and that doesn’t mean good things for Tony Romo usually. Josh McCown has been stellar for the Bears as of late and will need to be really on point tonight, as he should be able to find plenty of touches for Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall against a weak Cowboys secondary.

The Migos have blessed us with an exclusive new track entitled “Jealousy.” A few days ago, the ATL collective got into a war of words on the twitter world with Chicago native Chief Keef, so we’re not sure if this is an official response track or not at the moment. The lyrics however are saying otherwise, so we’ll have to wait to see on the Migos next move. The group’s highly-anticipated YRN 2 (Young Rich Niggas) mixtape is now set to hit the streets in January. Also look out for their Lobby Runners mixtape with Young Thug, Rich The Kid and Peewe Longway to touchdown as well. Listen to the exclusive OnSMASH world premiere above.

It’s never a bad day when araabMUZIK blesses his Soundcloud with some new production. The haunting, bass-driven goodness this cold December comes in the form of “BlackOut,” an instrumental that we can see the likes of Meek Mill body. If not him, we can hear some ASAP Mob x Danny Brown riot music cooked around this.
Fuck it. Just let this ride out on its own with no vocals besides araab’s producer tag. We already let it spin a few times on repeat.
