Having been on the supplier end of a product component being designed and built for Apple, with the project best being described as semi organized chaos run by a seemingly dissociative identity disorder affected project manager, this comes as no surprise.

Since this article is borderline satire, I'll share with you the real reason Apple is using Face ID, it's their way of boycotting the burqa. It's a bit unclear if they simply hate Muslim women or Apple wants to impose its values on them but it is a huge and very great victory of this Trumpian era, The Orange Prince is very pleased with Apple.

At least it's not as bad as Apple's next product, RoHS compliant malaria.

 

Edit: Just realized that face masks are widely used in major Asian markets, that's a (likely) problem too. Samsung's new logo,"Sex mask friendly".

I have had a problem with Apple products since the first Mac (the one with the 3 1/4" hard shell drive) ate my 'McDraw' presentation just before I tried to print it.  So I'm an old fogey (67), OK, but I remember reading the Jobs 'smoke and mirrors' meeting notes regarding the old Macs.  It's not a product, it's a concept!  We can't make it but we can sell it! So, smoke and mirrors can cost you - especially if you have a slimeball partner like Fox(Conn). Living in WisConnsin[sic], where we taxpayers are expected to subsidise another FoxConn scam, I'm not surprised Fox(Conn) has conned Apple into accepting a production schedule they can't meet.  OK, the product is complex - so what?  It's up to the manufacturer to tell the Fruit engineers they their clothes don't exist. Scammers of the world unite - you have nothing to lose but your customers. ss/wb
