Smartphones have long had abysmal battery lives, but a new development that shuts down bluetooth and wi-fi when the phone is idle stand to change that all. Called “Subconcious Mode”, this development was pioneered by University of Michigan’s Kang Shin and Xinyu Zhang. This “over clocking in reverse” technology might be the took that doubles smartphone lifespans and makes them as reliable as they already should have been.
All right, Mr. Jobs. Call those folks and get this into iPhone 5 and iPad 3 all quick-like!
