iPhone 5s Stands for Screening. Fingerprint ID lock on the way? #Awesome #Security
Apple rumors are everywhere and there is always something new and cutting edge they have to offer. I-groupies are everywhere and there is no short supply of Apple adoration. Although the Droid dominates the cell phone market in the United States (for now) the new iPhone5s boats a new win. A possible fingerprint scan.
For those that are paranoid about security this is a uber win situation. Who doesn’t want to feel the power of a super spy in the 21st century on their phone. CEO’s and big wigs will adore this when it comes to keeping prying eyes away from their business plans. Karl Lagerfeld’s designs are safe, Wired Mag and Gizmodo can write articles on their phones and you can watch porn at work. Oh wait. Not that last thing. Everything is secure and no one will ever know you are texting your girlfriend(s) ever again.
But what are they drawbacks. iPhones are notoriously known for glitching during your game, texting, social networking and are a constant smudge-phobics nightmare. We still have not mastered the James Bond software. The thumbprint may not register until the 12th time or not at all. Also our full knowledge and perfection for fingerprint scans, not so cutting edge. In security terms. We have a lot to learn.
Check out the Huffington Posts tech geek vid on the pros and cons on this little baby. I find it very insightful.

iPhone 5s might convert me, but for now I will stick with my trusty Droid.
