Something to consider: Human fingers press on touchscreens at different angles, depending on how far you are reaching and how you are holding a device (try it yourself). It's not inconceivable that this is by design, because our fingers do not operate like a thin pin coming straight down onto the screen. With different angles, we have a different "feel" for where our fingers are supposed to be pressing. That said, I have no information that would suggest Apple has...
Good for you on the no-email-access. Frankly, I can't understand why anyone would ever give access to their email/password to a 3rd party company. It defies common sense to tie all these services together.It really, really pisses me off when someone has my email address in their address book and then hands over the keys to other companies. Yes, LinkedIn was a particularly egregious example of this being misused. They spammed me based on that info from several...
I hope you see the irony here, Facebook is simply a gimmicky social media platform as well. And one that constantly screws over its user base time and time again. The only thing it has going for it is that it has a very broad reach.I'm curious how many people here are sick of Facebook but just don't see a simple, viable way to communicate with their friends easily.How many of you actually trust Facebook to not misuse your personal data?Real questions, I'm interested to...
I had to go look this up directly on square's site because it seemed to stupid to be true.  From what I'm reading there, it's not just ill-advised, it's completely moronic.  Your actual payment information is right there in clear-text email !   Not only are there all kinds of ways to spoof email (though I'm sure they think they have tricky algorithms to detect it, good luck with that!), but the meta data alone is asinine to be throwing around in public email.  For...
 I don't use this service (nor would I want to), but from what you've wrote here it doesn't even sound like you're sending money by email at all, it sounds like you're using other means (bank App or online web site), and the only part of it that's email is a verification sent to your recipient.  Is that right?   That's still meta data sent in the clear, which I wouldn't do, but at least it's not payment data itself.  This seems to confirm what I'm saying above, I think,...
 On the one hand I feel like you must be joking, but I don't think you are. Seriously, email accounts are the least secure, most easily and often hacked, trivially spoofed, stupidest idea EVER, for attaching to financial transactions.  Holy crap, what are they thinking?!
 For once I completely agree with your drive-by comment.
Yes, thank you Sidrc. Impressive indeed.People, if you want to know why she was hired for this position, watch this 13 minute TEDx talk. THEN come back here and discuss.I was thinking the same thing at a couple points in the talk. I believe offers like this and moves like this often take place over months-long periods; we as the general public peons just don't know about it until the end. So with that in mind, it's quite possible that she had already been made the...
 Thanks for the laughs, I had a couple literal LOLs. But hey, we're supposed to be keeping you in good spirits, not the other way around, right?! ;-) Then again, if you want to entertain us, just keep passing along stories about how your dog sleeps on you, snoring and passing gas, and about your friend who was in the porn business. LOL again.It's great to hear about your family being there for you. Ideally that would always be the case, but not everyone has that...
