Re: Believe Apple? Erm no.
Ok first of all your response made absolutely no sense in the context of what you were replying to, but I will humour you all the same.
Your first paragraph is completely irrelevant - the difference between leaving my fingerprints everywhere (along with lots of others people's) is they have to be manually collected at considerable cost. As for your border crossing point - what exactly were you addressing with this with regards to my original comment? Let me answer it for you - absolutely nothing.
Second paragraph - again completely irrelevant to my original comment.
Read the following very slowly so you can take it in and maybe comprehend.
My comment was not about how often we leave our fingerprints behind in spaces we interact with.
My comment was not about the fingerprints we leave on our passports or the cases to our phones and laptops.
My comment WAS about the fact that nothing Apple say regarding the security of the fingerprints automatically stored on the iPhone 5S can be trusted - let me explain again why - again with the hopes you might actually bother to read instead of just responding with random crap.
CALEA is a law in the US which requires all companies in the US manufacturing telecommunications hardware to provide a backdoor into that hardware for surveillance purposes. That means the iPhone 5S (and all previous iPhones, Android Phones made by US companies, Windows Phones made by US companies) almost definitely already have a backdoor into the device BY LAW.
FISA, PATRIOT and National Security Letters all give access to the device and the fingerprints stored upon it BY LAW and kept quiet via accompanying gag orders.
So again, THE POINT - Apple CANNOT guarantee that the security of the fingerprints stored on the device will not or has not already been compromised as a matter of law neither could they tell us if it had.
Apple are in an almost unique position with regards to CALEA since Apple are classed as the manufacturer (yes they outsource the fabrication but the design and manufacturing are completely under Apple's control - a US company under the jurisdiction of CALEA, FISA, PATRIOT).
Google may be in a similar situation with regards to Motorola and their original Nexus devices but most other Android devices are manufactured and sold by non US based companies.
Microsoft now they have bought Nokia are also vulnerable to CALEA and were already vulnerable to FISA/PATRIOT.
Now whether or not you give a flying fsck about your fingerprints being stored in a massive database for whatever purpose the government chooses to use them for is entirely your choice - but the vast majority of the civilised world do not want the same.
Next time you respond to a post, actually read it instead of typing completely irrelevant nonsense in reply.
