Use someone *else's* face as your unlock.

Like Teddy Roosevelt.

And then put that picture as your login screen, so it'll log you in if you point at a mirror.

It'll still be a problem if Zombie Teddy Roosevelt steals your phone, but how likely is that...

So you now have a cell-phone that's only useful near mirrors.

And completely useless if you're a vampire.

Comment Streaming in Blu-ray quality? (Score 1) 481 481

Until they stream in 1080p with full audio the online portion of the service is useless for me. I have a home theater with the big TV and big audio system so I can enjoy the whole movie. If I'm on a plane then streaming might make sense otherwise I want the physical disc quality.

A lot of the changes have made the code much more modular. You don't need to include everything if you don't need it. This also allows you to plug in other database adapters if you want. One of the nice routing changes allows you to call Rack or Sinatra applications from within your Rails application. I'm really looking forward to using this going forward.
