Quote from Steve Jobs: You know how you see a show car, and it%u2019s really cool, and then four years later you see the production car, and it sucks? And you go, What happened? They had it! They had it in the palm of their hands! %u2026What happened was, the designers came up with this really great idea. Then they take it to the engineers, and the engineers go, %u2018Nah, we can%u2019t do that. That%u2019s impossible.%u2019 And so it gets a lot worse. Then they take it...
 Huh???
People complaining about this must be idiots.  To carry an iPhone in one's pocket (which I myself would never do) is one thing, but to leave it in there while sitting down?  Gee!  Let's see...  Why... what will happen if I use my iPhone as a door stop?  Oh, it breaks when I do that. Darn.  I now need to demand Apple supply me with a protective case to prevent damage when I use it as a door stop.   Idiocy abounds.   And by the way, a friend from Taiwan showed me his...
Although I appreciated the article itself, the article title is disingenuous in light of the severely lackluster GPU performance. GPU matters as much as CPU in many cases, even when you are not playing games.
 Good.  Keep hammering the copycats, Apple!
Now we need an AppleInsider follow-up review that pits the SHARP to this $600 4k monitor: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2146320/samsungs-28inch-4k-monitor-price-drops-to-under-600.html
So it's a "viewer."  So what?  If I don't pay, it's only a viewer.  And honestly, when I am sent a Word or Excel file, I can view it on my iPad3 already just fine.  How much better a viewer do we really need on an iPad?   And therein lies the point.  It would appear that MS doesn't want you to be a viewer.  It wants to use this viewer to make you drool over the possibilities of how you could EDIT files on your iPad, hoping you will open your wallet to their annual...
"Beautiful," "exquisite," "sexy," "revolutionary." Poppycock! I've been an apple fan since my Mac 128K in 1984, but my eyes are not blinded like the rest of yours are that I am unable to see how awful that reflective case looks in virtually any environment! It looks absolutely horrible! Even if I had the money and the desire to buy this machine, which I do not, I would avoid buying it for that reason alone. Put a matte finish on it with a slightly glossy coat to solve...
 Thanks for the explanation.  I had been thinking that the sensor could literally see physical features under the outer layer of skin, making it impossible to fake simply by using a copy of the external fingerprint.  But if that "sub-dermal" scanning is, as you say, merely confirming life itself, then there really isn't much that is special about this sensor at all, other than it's high resolution.
I simply don't understand how this can be possible if one takes Apple's "sub-epidermal" statement at face value. Watch the following video on Apple's site, starting at 1:20... http://www.apple.com/iphone-5s/videos/#video-touch The way I understood it when presented at the keynote was that it reads the print on the surface of the skin as well as penetrating deeper into the skin to ensure the print could not be faked. I don't write this to attack Apple. I write this to...
