Apple's new OS, iOS 7, and two new phones, the iPhone 5c and 5s, have received a lot of attention. And they've sold 9 million phones in the first weekend of sales.
One feature that hasn't recevied as much discussion as may be deserved is the fingerprint biometric feature. That's the kind of tech we like to discuss at Technology Today and we'll tdo that this Wednesday at 6pm EST.
Security is an ever growing concern and the 4-digit passcode is often more of an annoyance than a detterent. Perhaps a finger tap apporach, which we are used to anyway from opening apps, will do better?
Some say this is a slippery slope, that once we are accustomed to using our fingers, retina scanners, voice print and other more intrusive biometric approaches will become the norm.
We'll discuss the pros and cons and take a deeper look at the biometric teck. Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, is a recognized expert in the technology space having built start-ups across the world. His current business, NXT-ID, is active in figerprint biometrics with special application in mobile payment security.
