Of the Nexus One (2010-01), Nexus S (2010-12), and Galaxy Nexus (2011-11), which can run Android 4.4 (KitKat)? Nexus One is stuck on 2.3 (Gingerbread), Nexus S on 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and Galaxy Nexus on 4.2 (Jelly Bean 2) or 4.3 (Jelly Bean 3) depending on revision.

True enough, however, if I REALLY wanted my old Android device (Nexus S for example) to run a newer version of Android, it COULD be done. Root the phone and load Cyanogen or something. With an iPad, from my knowledge, you're pretty much SOL.

I hate how this is breaking support for iOS 5.1.1 only devices like the iPad 1. My mother-in-law is not technically inclined, but uses an iPad1 for banking and watching TV shows. Both apps have broken support for iOS5 in favor of iOS7. This makes a device she paid good money for only a couple years ago a paperweight. My Motorola Xoom I bought at roughly the same time is going strong and running a very current version of Android. This kind of thing is just a normal function of technology every 4-5 years+, but not 2 or less. Unfortunately for Apple her next device will be an Android. Cheaper and obsolescence proof for much longer.

I'd love to be working at UL or a similar company and have something like this cross my desk. The potential for abuse sounds like fun. I'd make it a personal quest to find out how to make this fail in epic ways.

WPA2-EAP with FreeRadius running on a Raspberry Pi. TomatoUSB firmware with no WPS, limited IP pool and static IP addresses. No SSID broadcast. No wireless admin access to router. Raspberry Pi is on it's own subnet. Using rather then Obfuscation to the point I can't even remember it all. My Vista laptop is not happy with this setup....

If you read the actual PDF, the sensor is a full 1cm in length and all the power and support devices are wired up. They are a LONG way off from having this function is a real mouth. WiFi? Why not NFC? Who's going to fund something that looks like a razor blade embedded in a tooth to spy on the things you know you shouldn't be doing?
