Didn't I have similar conversations with some of you here few months back about facial recognition? I remember distinctly arguing that FR technologies hasn't matured enough at this time for true authentication especially amongst twins etc... well apparently you don't need to be twins... Apple engineers do think all chinese people look alike

There was a news story after the iPhone X was released where the son of a woman with an iPhone X was able to unlock it.
Oh No' I Fly by wire is computer software based is it not.

There was this occasion when i was borrowing books from the library, while the system scanned my library card,it left it in its memory banks and applied my id to the next few borrowers, one of whom never returned the books she/he borrowed.
I got hit for a couple hundred dollars for the books and the librarian would not listen to my explanation.because she said the library management system was the best from Germany and computers don't make mistakes.
Man she was dogmatic and it only took an appeal to higher management to have my explanation accepted.
Boy I was glad she was only a librarian and not my IRS tax assessor.

That's the problem when people without a technical background believe in computers. First day on the job I was told the computer is only as good as the person using it. I do everything old school by hand to verify any new software or version first.

Well if you dont hear from me for the next few days...........

Puffer fishes are well-known to be poisonous, if the dolphins ate it, they might die. I used to own a few fresh-water puffer fishes too but they were too shy that I finally decided to return them to the nature.
