If you have something technology-related to share and don't feel like cluttering up General Chat, post it here. Anything is fair game and anything highly technical is preferred.

It must be nice to have such a brain dead following that you can convince them of nearly everything imaginable--including the notion that fingerprint recognition technology on your devices is far more advanced than anything else on the market. Except that there's one small problem: It's not.

Now, do you mean that from the perspective of finger-prints-unlike-passcodes-are-left-behind-everywhere or you-have-to-take-your-gloves-off-when-it's-damn-cold-outside-to-unlock-this-stupid-piece-of-crap?

Well, I was thinking that this isn't particularly exciting, to start with. Secondly, I expect it to have hardware malfunctions. Lastly, I'm guessing the potential hacks will somehow turn into a big pain in the butt, though I can't predict how.

I would think that should only apply if you plan on using your buttprint to unlock it?
