Clearly it's not a real GUI, but it's more like expository dialogue - it's there to help tell the story even if it's a bit unnatural.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Except unlocking decrypts the device (generally). Unlocking a suitcase (your other example) doesn't make documents readable.
The fact is, phones should be able to be wiped before travel and having a quick restore option that brings everything back 100% once you're past customs. There is no border restriction or inspection (encrypted) on transferring the same data over the Internet - even if it crosses borders. So why should it apply to the physical phone?
If you had a coded paper letter in your suitcase, they can look at it, but they can't force you to tell them what it means.
Electronic bits aren't physical. But if you argue that they are, they are encrypted and that's the end of it. That really is a key difference. You can physically inspect an encrypted hard drive all day long but it doesn't do any good.
Maybe that's more of a progress indicator to show the program hasn't frozen yet. The reality is that such a lookup would be faster than that, since the analyzed facial data points would already be cataloged.
It's nothing compared to password cracking software solving a password one letter at a time.
6. Hackers can pull signal out of noise floor in ANY SITUATION. Sharpening blurry photographs, pulling intelligible voice out of a noisy recording, un-deleting files, doesn't matter.
I think CSI already knows this.
I'd say you got it nearly entirely wrong.
Why stop with one?
Even if your phone was x86, are you really going to get Win16 and 64-bit apps to run on the same device?
No, no. Don't you get it? It's the old joke - because 7 8 9.
Yes, breaking through the Windows with an axe saying "Here's Clippy!"
I think I may have just given myself nightmares.
Maybe Charlie Brown will finally kick that football...
It was pretty self-explanatory to me the first time I came across the word (years ago). I could see that the Xs were to enforce pronunciation, but it relates to docs (as in documenation). And I think it was clear that they are verbing a noun (fairly common).
