I'm pretty sure they don't keep your actual fingerprint on file. Given the tech-saavy nature of many Apple users (yes not everyone is the stereotypical college freshman who uses it just for iTunes), I doubt they'd get away with storing your fingerprints esp. with today's political climate on privacy. It'd be more likely (and easier to implement) a system where the phone takes your fingerprint template and runs a hashing algorithm to it. The phone sends the hash to Apple's servers and every time you use the fingerprint scanner on your phone, it compares the hash to that on the server. It'd maintain your privacy and it's easier to compare two hashes than it is to compare two images.

iOS while smooth is still the most boarding thing out there. Honestly why is it so hard for them to allow users to have widgets on the home page.
I would rather have the iphone run WP 8 then iOS TBH. Other then lacking in app support, WP8 is still the most efficient phone OS out ATM. Plus Multi Tasking still is pretty mediocre in iOS.
Edge to Edge screen would be nice, but the screen needs to be around 4.2". Also would like to get rid of all buttons, I loved the one screen buttons of my old Motorola phone.
MS' marketing sucks
. I personally prefer the UI of WP8 myself, but I use Android simply because there's more/better apps for it. It's a circular problem: I don't want to use WP8 until there's more people (and by extension more devs) for it, and it's people like me who's part of the problem of low adoption rates.
I feel it's the same thing that happened with the Zune. Superior alternative to all the other options out there yet no one knows about it which in turn makes it no fun to use.Edited by r31ncarnat3d - 9/11/13 at 9:01am
