"meaning owners may have the option to keep their machine up to date as new CPUs hit the market." If the writer did even the most cursory of research, he would see that the next CPU will not be socket compatible with the Ivy Bridge Xeon...
The thing is that whether absolute secrecy is a good thing or not depends on the circumstances. It is all relative. During the WW2 there were many resistance movements working against the Germans. From our pov absolute secrecy would have been fantastic. The Germans in turn were famously trying to communicate in secrecy to orchestrate  their u-boat attacks. Turing famously cracked the code and we are all grateful. Do I want 'the government' to be able to access any...
A proper mdm system would allow them to keep the profiles from being deleted as long as the device is setup to be in "managed" mode, right?
Wow that is powerful hardware and high-end specs on the display...
Exactly.. It really depends on the technology. the old style optical finger print sensors are garbage, the newer ones that utilize infrared/capacitance technology that can detect sub-surface blood vessels, etc can be very reliable and secure. I'm sure Apple will use cutting edge technology...  
Yes, there is advanced noise-reduction technology in modern camera chipsets, but it is almost inconsequential compared to the physics behind why a 1"+ DSLR sensor is going to have dramatically better low light performance than an iPhone sensor the size of your pinky finger's nail... There is only so much that can be done without revolutionary new optics or silicon sensor architecture/material
Yep, and everytime this comes up, all the small channels and the people who watch them, especially those that cater to a particular race/ethnicity (BET), foreign language channels (spanish language) and religion (all the christian channels) scream bloody murder and attempt to block any attempt at A-la-carte pricing...
That just isn't true. A lower power variant of Apples A6 with PowerVR SGX 5xx series (or PowerVR 6/rogue) could handle it just fine.There are 1920x1080 ~5" phones on the market now, and while they aren't as fast graphics wise as those with lesser resolutions, they are adequate.
I honestly don't understand why Google is even attempting to do this? I can understand why someone like Mozilla (non-profit, open source, anti-proprietary ideology) would care, but why would Google put so much money and effort into this? consumer-grade video codecs seem like the perfect use case for a single, widely supported industry standard which we have with MPEG-LA. Unless they were charging wholly unreasonable fees for licensing, what is gained by making an...
"Unless every website, every program, every piece of hardware that you use integrates this technology, it's not going to work. For this to completely replace usernames and passwords, there will have to be a lot of up-front work on the user's part and the developer's as well. you're still going to need back-up passwords and usernames for cases where you don't have your phone (like on a PC/Mac) or internet cafe. It's just too complex of a situation." You are completely...
