I don't know who this guy is, but his point is well made and worth thinking about.
Never give up! Rescue missions are my favorite part of Kerbal.
Good thing kerbals don't need food, apparently.
This robot is a baddy.
Ooo. It's showing of our home screens a thing today?
Ok, here's mine. I can't decide if I like this look or not, but it's a fun change from the normal look.
I wish I could make my phone (and my PC) use the official reference emoji published by the Unicode people.
I like their slightly retro line art.
@msh Oh yeah. I mean America.
I know we lag behind in this area.
Also, the two foot long receipt I get for buying a bottle of coke takes time to print.
I've gone back to carrying a good amount of cash.
It's honestly faster then paying by credit cards. I don't know how that happened, but peak credit card convenience was about 2005.
Oh, This expensive new technology works better if you have a "Cluttered" desk?
@jjg That is true. It's like calling the microwave oven industry the "tech industry" because microwave ovens are A technology.
@apLundell I once interviewed for a company that was making a VR teleconferencing system. It was going well until they told me I'd have to work on-site (in SF) and I asked them if they saw the irony in that.
@jjg That's like a parable about the tech industry.
@jjg All the while gushing about "virtual offices" and telecommunications.
In the future, live cats will be used as currency.
@sanspoint I guess so long as users can always disable biometrics, AND no third party can tell if biometrics are being used, I don't mind it.
But you could use a password instead, right? The app can't INSIST on using biometrics?
I sure hope they can find a way to eliminate jobs and replace local businesses with global corporations!
@sanspoint Can apps tell which authentication method has been used?
I've never actually looked at the parts of the iOS api that aren't useful for games.
Presumably any OS level facial rec beyond just ID would also be controlled by camera permissions.
But even properly implemented FaceID might leak more information than you want to leak.
You can imagine situations where you might not want an app-creator to know that multiple people are using the app.
There are problems with using biometrics as ID.
According to Wikipedia, there's a town in Russia that has a Monument to Chocolate!
That's the kind of statue we can all get behind!
