While Touch ID is designed to scan the fingerprints of your fingers (and thumbprints of your thumbs), some users of the iPhone 5s have discovered some other body parts that are supported by Touch ID. For instance, the video above shows a user registering their nipple for Touch ID. More videos and body parts below:

As it has done in the past for iPhones and other products/services, Apple has reached out to international Apple Retail Employees for some ideas to sell more iPhones in retail stores. The message (above) to employees was sent out late last week. Interested employees will be able to submit their idea and eligible employees will be offered an 8-week trip to work out of Apple’s Cupertino, CA headquarters with the iPhone sales team on the idea. While Apple has held similar programs in the past, the timing is interesting…

Update: AAPL has briefly dipped below 400 and continues to trade around that mark.

This morning, Apple’s stock has reached its lowest levels per share since late 2011. Since the beginning of 2012, Apple’s stock has rallied all the way up to over $700 per share, but since the end of the 2012, the stock has gone through a downward spiral. Today, the stock is trading at a little over $400 per share, with a daily low of $400.78. These numbers are in the same territory as late 2011 values per share, the same time when Tim Cook took over as CEO.

According to Digitimes, Apple is planning on launching a TV set either later this year or in early 2014. The site, which has a mixed track record, says that the display is of 4K resolution. Specifically, the report calls for a 3840 x 2160 panel in the TV. While the site says Apple could be working with LG on this, we previously profiled a 4K Sharp-built panel as “unreal.” Repeating previous rumors and speculation, Digitimes thinks the Apple TV set will sport motion and voice input.

Apple’s stock share price has risen today, after being down this morning, due to a rumor of an imminent stock split announcement. SeekingAlpha points to a tweet from The Street’s Doug Kass that seems to be the original source of the rumor. Apple’s next shareholder meeting will be held tomorrow, and this is where the announcement is rumored to take place.

We’d caution that this is just a rumor (if reliable, why didn’t he post it on the Street.com?)at this point and Kass’s past hits include things such as:

“I am also hearing that Google CEO Eric Schmidt has already begun low-level discussions with several Apple board members regarding his role as a possible temporary replacement to Steve Jobs should the options-backdating issues intensify at legal levels.”

Also Kass has a big personal interest in AAPL’s share price: expand full story
