Security that is not just band-aids takes much more than a little effort. I think it was Linus Torvalds (or maybe Edsgar Dijkstra) who was quoted as saying (though I haven't found the quote) that the biggest security problem is code with bugs. 
I don't believe you are correct. As I understand it, the fingerprint data on the phone is not accessible, Apple does not have your fingerprints -- the fingerprint data on the iPhone cannot be read or dumped. It's a one-way cypher. The iPhone merely determines if the last touchID finger image matches the stored data. 
Banks like other corporations exist to make money for their CEO's and investors, with no laws in place or enforced to make the CEO's and investors liable for incompetence or mistake. Banks don't care and they don't have to. It's a cost of doing business, which, of course, we pay for. Since they own the politicians, nothing will change. 
The problem with the Apple Watch is those of us who wear water-resistant watches, shower with them, swim with them and change the battery once every two years, will not be happy with the Apple Watch.
The speculations that Apple was working on an electric car (or any car for that matter) was as absurd as UFO sightings. I can never understand why such speculative drivel is reported in the first place, and even worse, allowed to expand over a week of time. As Mark Twain said: If you don't read the news, you're uninformed; if you read the news, you're misinformed.
Will the silliness never end?    “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” -- Mark Twain.
All the western governments are broke. Most of ours and their GDP are based on speculative stocks and financial institutions which are not based on productivity. Austerity in EU has collapsed all but Germany. None of the governments seem to exist for the people who live there. They have all bought into trickle down. Corporations want the benefits without paying for them. 
A pen with a larger iPad is just the ticket. An iPad emulating A4, 8 1/2 x 11 or legal size pads would be ideal. Add to that OS and software that would simultaneously allow reading a book and taking notes (like writing notes in the margins) would drive sales for certain. I would definitely buy such a device.
As for current owners not upgrading to iPhone 6, it's likely they will wait for the iPhone 7.
I went to the link recommended in this article which gives instructions on how to get automatic updates of flash. That adobe forum page tells me I'm running Flash, and I'm running Firefox on a Window 8 machine. Say what? My version is actually, running Safari on Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 So much for Adobe program quality.
