Geniuses lining up!

Postby viking60 » 03 Nov 2017, 15:07

It is time for the immensely intelligent people to line up in front of an Apple store to buy phones again.

They spend the night in front of it and freeze their but's of to be ripped off - Geniuses indeed.

There are even people there who are not fans and simply bet on the principle of a greater idiot; meaning that they hope to make a profit when they sell the iPhone to ....a Genius.

For that you will get facial recognition, iris recognition, fingerprint scan - the works - to keep you nicely categorized in Apple and governmental databases.

Finally that facial recognition thing is beginning to spook privacy experts.
App makers who want to use the new camera on the iPhone X can capture a rough map of a user’s face and a stream of more than 50 kinds of facial expressions. This data, which can be removed from the phone and stored on a developer’s own servers, can help monitor how often users blink, smile or even raise an eyebrow.

The gathering of data just for the sake of gathering has to stop. They all promise that they will not use the data or peek. ....so why gather them?
