Further Illustrating Our Policy of Compensating For Writer's Block By Posting You-Tube Links

One of In Range TV's Q&A sessions, this time without Mr. McCollum who is doing research abroad. I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment on any of the answers, but I'm particularly curious as to the opinions of any lurking IT professionals regarding  the advice and disquisitions regarding i-Phones and Cloud services at 32:10 and 33:45 respectively.

1 I'm inclined to agree, given the qualifications he presents in his answers. 

The fingerprint reader is a seductive convenience for the phone, and Apple at least provides a quick way to disable it, if you don't want to turn it off completely (which I do for everything when going through airports; once I make it to the security line, the only information I need for the next N minutes is printed on my ticket).

I want nothing to do with facial recognition on any device. Even in the unlikely event that it can't be spoofed, it's a lot easier to wave a phone in front of someone than it is to force the correct finger onto a reader. You might not even realize that the waiter just stole your phone and unlocked it...

"With a search warrant in hand, they forced him to put his face on front of the device to unlock it. They were then able to freely search for his photos, chats and any other potential evidence."
