Yeah, "my reporting style". Directly from their blog entry, which I linked:
" First, the fingerprint of the enroled user is photographed with 2400 dpi resolution.
Edit: The rest of the paragraph as follows.
"The resulting image is then cleaned up, inverted and laser printed with 1200 dpi onto transparent sheet with a thick toner setting. Finally, pink latex milk or white woodglue is smeared into the pattern created by the toner onto the transparent sheet. After it cures, the thin latex sheet is lifted from the sheet, breathed on to make it a tiny bit moist and then placed onto the sensor to unlock the phone. This process has been used with minor refinements and variations against the vast majority of fingerprint sensors on the market."
I don't see anything misleading about my sentence. I was aware of it because it's been reported on other Apple-centric websites already.Edited by Gatorguy - 9/22/13 at 1:10pm
