So anyone have more information on the Shellshock vulnerability?   http://www.macworld.com/article/2687857/bigger-than-heartbleed-shellshock-flaw-leaves-os-x-linux-more-open-to-attack.html
Sorry - Not their finger, but my finger.  If I'm unconscious a first responder could simply touch my finger to the phone and have access.  Apple could provide some specific action to only bring up emergency info upon that TouchID action (but that is not available now).
I haven't used this yet, but thanks for the information.  Some questions:   1)  How is this data accessible in an emergency?  Can a TouchID (finger print) be used in an emergency (if I am unconscious can a first responder use my finger to bring this up quickly)?  The "show when locked" feature is nice, but I really don't want some who borrows or steals my phone to have access to the is data.   2)  Is this data considered to be a part of Apple's health care repository...
Yup, Wells Fargo sent me a notice that they were going to use Apple Pay a day or so after the rollout.
Great article, summarizing a complex set of protocols.  Each year I make up a list of what I would like to see before Apple's Developers Conference and this year each and every one of the items on my list was completely addressed (including AppleTV's new "non-network" connectivity - a huge help when I perform presentations on the road).  I'm very excited see this ubiquitous connectivity in action when Yosemite and iOS8 debut shortly.
I agree with Knowitall, but I also believe that Touch ID will be embedded in all of Apple's products (including laptops and desktops). That combined volume would justify the investment in sapphire. As for liquid metal it will continue to be used in unique situations where it will provide high value in smaller part applications. I am a huge fan of Touch ID and have waited on purchase of a new iPad until it is incorporated in the product line.
Underground, of course!
 Well I had this correct (that Google was headed towards live sat info) but my time horizon was off. This is what the WSJ had to say about Skybox Imaging (the company Google just purchased for $500M): "For 1/38th the price of WhatsApp, Google acquired Skybox Imaging, which puts satellites into orbit 185 miles above Earth on the tip of the same Russian missiles that once threatened the U.S. with nuclear destruction. And here's what Skybox could allow Google to accomplish:...
 Here's a citation,   http://tech-beta.slashdot.org/story/14/02/12/219243/google-earths-new-satellites Yes Google does purchase 3rd party sat imagery, but I'm fairly certain that at one time Google owned a fair chunk of DigiGlobe.  They were/are one of their largest customers. Agreed, presently live satellite feeds are only in the realm of the NSA, but in the future there will be live, high resolution photogrammetry.    If I had to guess it would be within the next 20...
The data sets (there are many of them) are quite complicated.  These are all relational databases linked via a geolocation (probably a UTM coordinate), and include such things as the base photogrammetry, 3-d renders, open source mapping (which must then be reconciled with the 3-d renders (which is a whole complicated process), data tables tying street addresses to the UTM (or other geolocation base data).  This is just for the base maps, then routing routines, address...
