The one thing I dislike about my new galaxy is the wrap-around bezel. Before I got the case for it, I had to handle it really gingerly around the edges or it would think I'm trying to navigate away from whatever I was doing.

I think the only biometrics I've used are fingerprint scanners, but not currently using them for anything.
No the iPhone uses an infrared dot projector and a depth sensor. The dot projector sends out a grid of dots, and the depth sensor analyzes the relative distance to each dot. I think some security researchers managed to fool it by building an elaborate mask but they had to take exact measurements of the persons face, so it's pretty secure.

I see a solution: wear a mask of your face over your face wearing a facemask

Makes more sense. I need to catch up on biometrics tech.

e: I use a pattern code on my phone. I don't really keep a lot of stuff that needs to be secure on it though.

the solution is to use the fucking 4 or 8 digit PIN that pops up literally 0.5 secs after the faceID doesn't recognise you, and to stop being such a fucking dauntless-themed fag.

I'll have you know, my pin is 12 digits so eat a dick uzique

I also have Face ID on my whatsapp so it comes up once when I unlock and then again when I go on whatsapp, and another time when I use Apple pay.

With the amount of black dicks we send each other back and forth on whatsapp this is a major concern

That'd be pretty crazy in public. People are already on edge. Now is not the moment to start carrying a life-size photo of yourself to unlock your phone while wearing a facemask.
Get one of those masks with your face printed on it.

BF2s is too active nowadays that I actually have to start not clicking on threads in the New Posts screen because it's not worth the time to stay updated on them. Granted, I have no business in the Official Marijuana Thread or the Tech section, but still. This resurgence is making me alter my behavior.

Oddly enough, you proposed a joint celebration on the last page of the Birthdays sticky a couple years ago.

if mac really does want to be a cop, then this forum here is a radioactive cache. being a teacher is compromised enough. there's enough here to sink him for life. he'll be declared an official enemy of the state and chased out of NJ like a pariah. he's said unconscionable things about his students, his peers, and Allah.

the wellcome initiative means that all scholarly publishers are racing to share and open/remote access any material they have relating to coronavirus.

i am currently converting a huge tranche of papers and data into open access. it is very laborious.

now i know how all those angry american protestors must feel.

Similar story here my guy. The whole economy needs recovering, and the political staff are all of the mind that they'll kick the problem down to nerds working in policy to cook something up. I'm a Michelin starred chef specializing in word spaghetti. Let me fry up a recovery plan real nice for you.
