Do you wish your phone would wake up when you commanded it to, like Galaxy S III? Well, it’s not gonna happen (at least not without some hacking). But, your next phone might just sport the feature, all without having to be saddled with the rest of TouchWiz. Nuance is bringing its powerful voice recognition tech to OEMs and offering them the ability to not only unlock phones with voice controls, but lock them down using biometrics. In that way, it’s actually got a leg up on S Voice. Dragon ID isn’t a gimmick — it’s a security feature. In fact, if properly integrated, it can recognize multiple voices and open up to custom homescreens for each user. Sadly we have no idea when or where this tech will first show up, but we wouldn’t be shocked to see it on both Android and Windows 8 tablets, as well as smartphones and PCs in the near future.

We heard last summer that 2010 would be the year for US Airways to gain in-flight internet, and sure enough, America’s worst legacy airline has made good on said promise. As of now, a grand total of five Airbus A321 planes are equipped with Gogo, and if you’re lucky enough to end up on one, you’ll get a single free session through June 1st provided that you’re a first-time Gogo user. Speaking of early June, that’s when all 51 of the outfit’s A321′s will be lit with WiFi, and better still, you’ll be able to see right away if your flight will be wired (or unwired, as it were) at the time of booking. There’s no mention of expansion plans beyond that, and we still haven’t received an apology for refusing us a gratis glass of water on a 6.5 hour flight in August of 2008. No, we’re not bitter. At all.
