The Turing Phone, which boasts of providing the ultimate security for smartphone data and having a case "stronger than steel," will be available for pre-order starting July 31. The phone's maker, Turing Robotic Industries, also announced that they will reveal available color options for the new phone on July 22. Those who will avail of the phone through the pre-order offer will also be receiving additional goodies the phone comes their way.
The new phone is made of a revolutionary liquid-metal which its manufacturer calls "liquidmorphium." A CNET report describes the material as "an amorphous alloy of zirconium, copper, aluminium, nickel and silver whose atomic structure is more like glass than like aluminium or steel." TRI also claims that because of this alloy, the phone's production produces a lot less waste and is therefore greener. Liquidmorphium is supposedly stronger than aluminium or steel thereby offering strength that is unrivaled by any other smartphone.
The phone's main attraction for consumers and buyers is its promise of ultra-security. Given that a lot of smartphone users nowadays rely on their smartphones not just for phone calls and SMS but also for personal and business purposes, data security is becoming a major concern. Most smartphones manage data through a third-party server that issues a security certificate. The Turing Phone manages data locally, through a built-in security chip called the Turing Imitation Key. Since encryption is being done locally, this keeps sensitive data offline and out of reach from hackers. Sharing sensitive data can now be done between Turing Phones. more >>

The visible aftermath of the terror wrought by groups like ISIS and Boko Haram is devastatingly obvious: dead bodies in the streets; men, women and children left homeless, their bodies bleeding and broken; and makeshift refugee communities popping up across the more stable areas of the Middle East.
While the visible aftermath is appalling, the invisible aftermath — the trauma that wrecks the mind and spirit of so many survivors — is no less horrific.
Hussam, a Syrian refugee, is living with the trauma caused by being a first-hand witness to terror. During an attack by ISIS on his largely Christian neighborhood, Hussam stood just 20 yards away as a mortar was dropped on a bus filled with children. When he ran to help, he saw that seven children and the driver had been killed. Never had Hussam been so close to the tragic outcomes of war. more >>
