Puts the focus back on security …::: Apple’s Latest iPhone Puts Focus Back on Fingerprint Security

Placing a finger on a computer or smartphone has long been proposed as a way to avoid the need for passwords to authenticate users of computers and other devices. People familiar with the matter said last week that Apple will include a fingerprint scanner on the more expensive of two iPhones it is expected to unveil Tuesday at an event at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.

And it works equally for all computers and game consoles. But does the NSA agree, or will they just make use of that to make another loss of privacy commonplace?

So now NSA needs a place to store all those fingerprint files, for easy access, and to screen terrorists, of course. … OK by you?

Here’s what Apple is serving up in the iPhone 5:

64-bit A7 chip: The world’s first 64-bit mobile phone with over 1 billion transistors. According to Apple, it has 56times the processing power in the new processor, which can make some apps run as much as five-times faster.

Fingerprint reader: Dubbed “Touch ID,” users can now access their devices with the in-built fingerprint reader. Embedded in the device’s home button, now a stainless steel “detection ring,” it can now read fingerprints 360-degrees at a very high resolution of 500 pixels-per-inch. It can also be used to make in-app purchases.
