To be fair... He's reusing the joke.

Great place to use it, though.

This is irrelevant click bait. The DMV already has your photo on file. Not to sound defeatist but short of moving to the woods you're gonna get spied on by the powers that be.

You don't know wtf you are talking about. A still 2d image taken every 10 years or so is not the same thing as a 3d scan of a face done multiple times daily, of everyone within 7 feet of a phone, with infrared cameras that can ID your face accurately even as you age, grow a beard, or put on a hat and sunglasses. You're a fucking retard if you think there is no difference, stop spouting off about shit you clearly have no knowledge of.

Buh-but Apple promised not to share the face data? Apple doesn't lie to its users?

Actually they don’t need to promise anything. How the technology they’re using works is easily verified by third parties and can be examined in detail.

How it works is irrelevant. The issue is with them collecting and sharing your biometric data.

Can you explain to us how the hardware backdoors work? Are they also "verified" by third parties?

The sensors in the phone can be hacked and potentially accessed directly in isolation. Theres nothing preventing the sensor itself from being hijacked and other code being executed on the device to achieve another result or goal. Even if the NSA/CIA can't retain the data, the ability to use the sensor to Face ID someone against their system is a huge risk. I am not arguing this would be easy, it wouldn't be, but the hardware is there. That is what concerns me the most.

That's just fine. The NSA will have to make due with the DMV data coupled with all your endless selfies. Not being 3d scanned isn't a huge detriment.

Again, you clearly have no clue what in the fuck you are babbling about. You are obviously not a technologist of any kind, and if you are I feel sorry for whomever employs you. Currently, using only 2d images gleaned from mug shots and DMV photos and the like, the US government's facial recognition ability is wrong the vast majority of the time. They try to use it at every Super Bowl and other big events and every time it gives off mostly false positive ID's that a human can tell are obviously wrong with a quick glance. Access to the data from this technology would improve their ability to scan and ID moving faces in a crowd exponentially. The difference is literally night and day, as this tech allows for ID's in complete darkness. To say that the US government would not desire access to this because they already have DMV photos and Facebook selfies is so fucking retarded that it is hard to believe that you actually believe it yourself.

Simple. Don't buy it. I've never owned an Apple product. Never will.

The new iWatch is funny. It's expensive and one of its new features doesn't work. But that won't stop people from paying for it anyway.

Ah yes it will stop one hell of alot of people from buying not only the watch but also the X too.

It's a device you pay a lot of money for that straps to your wrist. It tracks every place you go, listens to everything you say and watches everything you do. It even has telemetry that sends your biological information to your oligarch owners. If you don't have one, you need it!

iWatch watches you. The irony.

Been using Apple computers since the 80s. Always preferred them to Windows.

Never felt comfortable with the cameras, but I fixed that with tape.

NSA: we love that you put spy cams in everything but people are catching on and putting tape over the camera.
Apple: I got this fam. We make it so the only way to unlock the phone is to literally scan your face in.

Right, so now they can only listen in to everything you say! Problem fixed! You sure showed them for repeatedly violating your privacy and vastly overcharging you for every product you have ever purchased from them!

To be fair, Android has had this sort of tech for awhile (granted, I don't know if Apple's version collects more data or whatever).

I’ll stay along with my Moto G3 running Linage OS 7.1.2 without Google Services and Google Play. There is a bloke waiting in line at the Apple store in Sydney for the past week now lol. His dying to grab his hands on the iPhone X. Oh wait. That’s coming out around November lol. The cost of the iPhone X 256GB is $1649 AUD.
