Is Apple Face-ID on The iPhone X Secure

Apple’s face scanning software can be broken by anyone under the age of 13 and the fruity cargo cult has been forced to admit that it does not really work for kids. Apparently, the Face ID facial recognition system thinks kids look the same – it’s fair enough really – I think they all look the same, and all babies look like Winston Churchill no matter what their mums think.

In 2014, 51 percent of payments in developed countries were made with credit cards. However, that number is expected to dip to 46 percent in 2019 as advances in technology will make it easier for people to pay for things with their phones.  This won’t apply to developing nations, where cash is still the...

Will Apple Delay The iPhone X

The iPhone X, which is already late, probably will not see the light of day until next year, according to a leading financial services company. Apple needs the iPhone to go out on October 27 so that it can go into the Christmas stockings of extremely rich spoiled kids. Financial services company Raymond James thinks the iPhone X might come much, much later, around December. But to make matters worse that is the time that the orders are possible and it might be a few months after that the iPhone...
