History will be made this week as Local Motors live prints the first 3D printer car followed by its first drive this Saturday. The print is expected to be 44 hours in length and will take place in Chicago at The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS).

"Apple's plans for iBeacon hardware and new iOS 8 location notifications" ]

A year after Apple launched its iBeacons initiative the company looks set to develop it further. If FCC filings are to be believed, Apple is on the verge of releasing its own iBeacon hardware.

In addition, a new location based app recommendations feature in iOS 8 could cut down on the need for notifications to open apps.

Whatever the method is of determining the most relevant app, its icon is displayed in the bottom left corner of iOS 8’s lock screen opposite the camera icon.

If any company could push mobile payments to the mainstream, it’s Apple—but Touch ID will need to work perfectly every time.

"You have to start with the fact that Apple is Apple," IDC research director James Wester tells Fast Company. “As an analyst you try not to jump on the bandwagon. In this case, they haven’t reinvented anything. They’re using technologies that have been used by Google Wallet and ISIS [recently renamed Softcard to avoid confusion with the terrorist group].”
