Crowdfunded Bounty For Hacking iPhone 5S Fingerprint Authentication

Internal Modem Re:You can just enter the passcode. (148 comments)

Exactly. The inclusion of the sensor is not about being 100% secure all the time, it's about encouraging the use of some level of security by the majority who currently have none. Since it is quicker to use the sensor than to swipe to unlock without a PIN, that is the metric to consider.

Why iTunes Radio Could Take Down Pandora

Internal Modem Re:Ah the post-iPhonenote planted stories (166 comments)

Your point was that iTunes Radio isn't a threat to Pandora. You also ignored the fact iTunes Radio will be available in more countries than Pandora (something investors will be concerned about). Also, you ignored the fact the growth of streaming radio is mostly in the mobile space. Also, you ignored the fact there are currently more iTunes users than Pandora subscribers.

You do realize the architecture isn't the same as your windows machine? The 4 GB argument is only put forward by those that don't know what they are talking about.

Moto X Demo Video Reveals Google's Android Superphone

Internal Modem Re:Battery Drain (151 comments)

You have hit the nail on the head here. What we need is an AI that "learns" what we (as individuals) consider important updates, and the rest of the gimmicks can go away (turn off). The biggest problem is that this hypothetical AI would possibly use more battery than just leaving everything on....

Internal Modem Battery Drain (151 comments)

"a woman is shown asking Google Now what the weather will be like in Toronto while she types away on a computer, never having to reach down to tap the handset."

That is the type of "feature" I immediately deactivate to conserve battery. Most features added by manufacturers these days seem like gimmicks where the drawbacks are greater than the benefits.

You can't count or read. You didn't even need to follow the link to find that it was more than one. You are not intelligent enough to debate.
