Apple's TouchID Fingerprint Scanner: Still Hackable

topgun966 actually this is serous (70 comments)

From a legal standpoint if you are arrested, detained, pulled over, a cop cannot force you to unlock your phone without a court order. However the loophole is if they can get into your phone by responsible means, it falls into discovery (no password or using something stupid like 1234). One could argue since they already have your fingerprint, they are not forcing you to unlock your phone therefore it's free game.

topgun966 Hrm (717 comments)

I have been in IT for over 15 years now, I think I can count on one hand the weeks I have worked that where only 40 hours. (counting getting called on call). It is the nature of the business and our jobs.

topgun966 Re:So tablets at PCs now? (577 comments)

Naw, that would be Samsung. They shipped WAY more phones than Apple. Hell, the GS3 alone beat the iPhone. Soooo no.

Rare Photos: Gnu Crashing a Windows 8 Launch Event

topgun966 Trolls (313 comments)

I have been a long time Unix/Linux/Windows/Dos etc developer user etc. And I can say this, Windows 8 is a very bold move for Microsoft. I actually like the power user features. Now with GNU/Linux, there is NO such thing as free. Ever. Time is money. I cost about 300 an hour to help business that switch to Linux and have issues. It depends on what you are using it for, but Windows 8 definitely has its place.

topgun966 Re:grrrr (675 comments)

Linux is worse my friend. Our Linux servers (kept up to date) has more rootkits/exploits done than anything else combined. Linux is MUCH worse at security.

Microsoft Taking Aggressive Steps Against Linux On ARM

topgun966 Re:grrrr (675 comments)

Sure, and exploits in Windows malware can do the same to inject a virus into the MBR. That's what they want to stop. Hence, do not buy a prebuilt computer. This will only effect those. Just build you're own.

Microsoft Taking Aggressive Steps Against Linux On ARM

topgun966 grrrr (675 comments)

On the surface, yes this is MSFT being douches. But they do have sound reasoning if you hear it out. MSFT is sick and tired of being thought of a virus/malware ridding os. They are being aggressive. By locking down the EFI (new bios) that will prevent boot sector viruses. This is going to be the same for x86. There is a easy work around. DONT BUY A PRE-BUILT COMPUTER. I am avid Linux and Windows user. Try looking at it from their perspective and be a little more objective.

AND only on wifi. Ummmm thats call webcam chat. Sure you can use the internet from my Evo so you can video chat lol. Come on iphone fan boys you have to admit, this is pretty weak. Honestly I was hoping for something with more pizazz.
