Twenty-four years after Apple founded ARM with Acorn.

Don't forget that Apple in the late '90s early 2000 lost interest in ARM and sold most of its shares (at the end of it all Apple had only about 15% left). So I wouldn't speak too loudly of Apple co-founding it with Acorn because from early on in the life of the company Apple pretty much didn't have much influence in it. ;) It also started because it wanted to further develop the Acorn RISC machine processor, the only reason Apple was interested in that was because it used it in its Newton. So the main tech that started ARM off was from Acorn. I'm think you are overestimating Apple's role in the growth of ARM.

Remember that the scanner must be sensitive to even the slightest change. That means if if fingers are not as or more dry than the initial setup, it may fail. Same goes for any slight wear on a finger tip. For example I have a knife that requires a switch to be actuated with a fair amount of pressure to open/close. If I immediately attempt to unlock my iPhone after doing so, it often fails on the first attempt.

4th 5s? Sure.. that's the ticket.

Give Samsung a little better quality of BS for your share of the $14 Billion promotional budget.

That way lies hell.
