Will the iMac ever be radically redesigned, or has it reached the point of perfection for its genre?
I've got Apple money burning a hole in my pocket, release something already!
If it works without false positives, this is what I am looking for. As I said in a post yesterday, Touch ID is too fiddly and global for me. Not worried about someone who steals my phone using it to make calls or texts before I brick it. If I could put my brokerage and banking apps only behind theTouch ID wall and leave non-sensitive ones open, I would again use it.
The face of Level will be one-hit wonder, Psy singing "Gang-nam Style." All the cool kids in Koreatown will be wearing them.
Stopped using Touch ID when it started forgetting my prints and I had to redo them three times. Have been told that it has been fixed, but it's just too damn much trouble. Will wait until Apple comes up with a passive form of biometrics that doesn't require so much fiddling. The only thing worth stealing on my phone anyway are passwords, and they're locked up in 1Password. Come to think of it, maybe that's the answer. A lockbox. User decides which functions require Touch...

"The next big thing is here." Apologies (and sympathies) to Samsung.
Sloppy reporting making Apple look bad? Shocker! But I thought it was only new media that did that . . .
Have never had to charge my iPhone in less than 24 hours. Most often I charge it every two days. Granted, I am retired and not constantly texting, playing games, surfing the internet, or checking email, but the phone is never turned off. And I do a some all of those things several times a day. Battery life has never benn an issue for me, and I've owned every model ever made. Wish Apple would confront Samsung head on. Back to the days of "I'm a Mac. And I'm a PC."
I use Apple maps whenever I can, because I hate the Google hegemony. Apple was letter perfect navigating New Zealand by rental car last year. But this year in Japan Apple was worthless to me navigating public transportation. Google Maps was a godsend in getting from place to place by train. Apple can't fix this omission soon enough.
