    Liquidmetal Design

    Apple fans have been hoping for a Liquidmetal iPhone since the company acquired Liquidmetal Technologies in 2010. Now, about four years later, Apple may be closer to reaching an iPhone design based on such materials. In January 17 patents were published that outlined various applications for Liquidmetal technology related to mobile devices. According to the documents, Liquidmetal could be used to improve the pressure sensors in the iPhone’s home button, the touch sensors in the display and the binding components used to hold the phone together. The collection of patents aren’t directly linked to Apple just yet, but the inventors listed are Apple employees that have been involved in the company’s work with Liquidmetal alloys in the past, as MacRumors notes.

  • An insider automatic stock sale is a plan (often called a 10b-5 plan) that provides that an insider will trade shares automatically in amounts and on dates set forth in the plan. It could be "sell 1,000 shares every Friday" or it could be very complicated (e.g. "sell 1,000 shares if the price hits $10 and the trading volume is at least 100,000 shares"). The reason for it is because insiders often can't sell because they have insider information. Trading with inside information is illegal. But by having an automatic plan, the insider is not trading on inside information (the trade is automatic and will happen regardless of any inside knowledge).
