Why would the FBI commit personnel and time and money gathering fingerprints of the users of I-phone?
What are they collecting them for?
Why would they want them?
Answer those questions and I may feel differently.
At the end of the day it's all about control....it's not a phone anymore. It's a GPS tracking device that can take your picture
whilst uploading your unique fingerprint.
It's not a phone it's your mobile identity
"They" want to know what you're viewing on youtube, what you're buying, what time you're alarm went off to get up and go to work, who you talk to on
FB, what you're tweeting about, what you're taking pictures of....and where you're doing it from and at what time, not to mention what forums you're
ALL OF THIS CAN BE DONE FROM YOUR MOBILE INDENTITY / PHONE
Small picture they use this information to target you with specific advertising...a lot.
Big Picture they will sway you're opinions via social and normal media based on all of the information you've been putting into
your phone (they will know it's you and only you because you gave "them" you're fingerprints).
Eventually they will have such a big profile on everyone collectively that they will have a profile of the country you live in.
This will influence government, it will influence the greatest control over the population...MEDIA.

Why, oh why, is anyone communicating anything more than grocery lists to execute on the way home from work?! What is wrong with all of you. Even the
feds use couriers for TRUELY sensitive info. All the other so-called sensitive data by the feds is bait, psy-op and intentional diversion.
I was riding a city bus once and someone had what appeared to be a fingerprint scanner on a smart phone disguised a lie detector. The lady with the
phone would get someone to put their finger on the phone and after it was done scanning it would say true or lie. A little background on that person
lady is someone known to abuse drugs and probably engage in prostitution, that day she was with a male in camo pants who appeared to me like he could
be an undercover. My theory was she was with the undercover cop collecting fingerprints of people known to be involved with drugs and other illegal
activity because she recently got busted and was working with them to reduce or drop her charges.
I called them out on their little gadget and they promptly got off on the next stop which was kind of a no man's stop that few people stop at.
Wow crazy stuff. Drug dealer uses his phone to text his clients and gets busted. "It wasn't me who sent those texts " officer says "sir we have
your fingerprint unlocking your phone at the time in question. "
Why cant we unlock our phones with coded RIFID tags sown into our clothing or somthing, maybe a skin colored sweat band on our wrists etc.
Far better than a finger print which can get dirty, smudgy ..... if you are really unlucky, cut off
Ive seen a vid of it working (below) and it does work pretty well, which you would expect from a 600$ phone. But yeah, the whole finger print thing
is unsettling no matter how assured one if that its not going to be used for anything else or how badly it may work in wet/dirty/sandy/etc

If you log into your phone with your fingerprint, you could be incriminating yourself in a situation where certain actions you performed on your phone
come into question. If you need your fingerprint to log in, that means it has to be you who logged in and performed those said actions. It's not just
about collecting your fingerprint data (something they already have on file especially if you own a legally-purchased gun, are an immigrant, etc.
etc.), it's the fact that you can't deny that it was you who logged in when some type of crime was committed. You could be incriminating yourself by
using the fingerprint log-in. This is one of the reasons I never liked the idea of fingerprint log-in on notebooks for example. You never know how
stuff like this could end up being used against you. Just a thought.

Yikes, iphone and Android are both pretty hackable by the NSA, CIA, etc. I'm skeptical that the fingerprint reader could be accessed. The fingerprint
image is never stored, just the encrypted data off on a seperate part of the chip that doesn't back up to your computer or the cloud.
At this point in the way our transmissions are collected I don't think the 3 letter agencies really need to go so far as to access our biometrics
anyway. They can get all they want by tapping the communications pipelines of cell lines and the internet backbone. Maybe biometrics will be required
by the new Govt. Healthcare anyway.
I'm in the mood for a new phone and the iPhone 5S looks pretty sweet to me.
BTW, "Droid" is only by Motorola. Motorola paid George Lucas some big bucks to use that name. Lucas wisely had the phrase "Droid" trademarked and
buttoned up quite nicely. "Android" is the name of the "other" smartphone operating system. iPhone operating system is "iOS".
