Comment Google... (Score 1) 236

Funny Google act like bully untill press gets the story... Also in my country officials clearly sate that you should newer scan your id/passport/creditcards to any website... Google really should work their customer service... You cant just close something and not tell them why. This sort of moving city is perfect example what can go wrong...

Comment Bending the rules by government issue (Score 1) 432

Since government likes to bend rules, maybe its time to seriously consider removing fingerprint locking from phones entirely... Slef incriminating protection is about handing over damaging evidence, it should not matter how that evidence is accessed... If i lock my phone with fingerprint/password/etc... i have expectations of privacy...

Comment Change for nothing (Score 1) 446

USB-C is still proprietary port. Just because some specs are available docent mean its open implementation. This is change for no reason. Users have been wanting better batteries for phones for years now. Trend seems to be thinner and thinner phones that also means severe compromises on physical integrity of phone. Personally i would keep old and trusty connector, add couple mm to thickness of phone and use that space to add bigger battery for phone. Modern usage patterns really dont benefit to small batteries...

Stupidity more like it... I do understand apples drive to maximize profits by moving to proprietary custom BT chips, with added bonus of tieing customers even more to apple products, etc... but i dont undestand why remve good reliable connector. It can be water proofed if wanted, so thats just xcuse of bad manufacturing and engineering..
