 Hiatuses work. Come back when you can though.
 It would have to be a substantially different implementation to work with touchscreens.  The screen assembly does not possess the rigidity required for discrete force sensor measurements.
 So why have you not enabled tap to click? Then you never have to click the physical button.
 Maybe I'm misunderstanding your point. The zip code is not useless for verification just because the vendor doesn't know what it should be. The zip code is sent with the card number to the processor - the transaction is declined by the processor if the zip code is incorrect - just like at the gas pump.
 The basis of the article - Schiller unfollowing Fadell - is certainly not news. The relevance of Nest to Apple or Google is the more interesting topic.
 You didn't read far enough then. In cases where the CC processors require zip codes for authentication (such as unattended gas purchases) then this law does not apply.

 So you regard the fact that he deleted his Instagram account and stopped following Fadell on Twitter as insulting, and that it makes him a snob. Well no, that just makes you either strangely over-sensitive or, more likely, just a mindless parrot of the Android community snob claims made back in April. The latter, I suspect. Tim Cook was commenting on the junk market. If you believe yourself to be part of it then go ahead and feel insulted. You won't find any sympathy here. 
 Probably because you didn't make any arguments - you merely insulted Schiller, made a bunch of ridiculous assertions, and then regurgitated the usual troll memes regarding walled Apple gardens and open, benevolent Google. Your post didn't actually deserve a response at all, but TS nicely summed up what most of us thought of it.
