Well, the day is finally here! Right now, you can head on over to Apple's site and buy the brand-new iPhone 5S. But that also means one persistent annual question is back: "Should I get a new iPhone?" The answer is less dependent on the actual iPhone 5S (the fancy, gold, expensive one) and 5C (the cheaper, colorful plastic one), than you'd think; really, the answer is all about you. What do you want? What do you need? So we made this little infographic to help you through the process. Enjoy!
You have forget the question:
"Do you want you fingerprint in a NSA database for no reason?"
I'm a Swede and don't really believe that NSA is saving me or anyone from the al qaida/Communists/Viet Cong or whatever you enemy is right now.

What is the massive deal about the stupid fingerprint scanner? They've had those on laptops for years! And if I'm not mistaken, the first Motorola Atrix had a fingerprint scanner lock button. If the NSA wanted your fingerprints I'm sure they have more methods than an iPhone.
Also the rest of the world that isn't the USA and/or aren't paranoid are perfectly fine using fingerprint scanner to lock their phone.
Really? This article is arrogant and conceited. Who is Nosowitz to decide for someone else what is best for them? Of course, this is often the case with him. His articles usually only allow for his tunnel-vision view of the world, often disparaging other views with inflammatory and crass language.
This article would have been far better by simply listing pros and cons, or at least pretending to be objective. Popular Science should fire this guy because of the unprofessional tone he imposes on the magazine.
A finger print password has to be translated digital, then
compared to a stored digital. That being said, this means
you finger print translated digital can be hacked, copied and used
again else where.
Well Apple has said they are encrypting fingerprint data. Pretty sure one of the largest tech companies in the world can come up with some pretty robust encryption. Pretty sure the data is also stored locally on the phone and not on some server anywhere.
Take a breath and calm down - these sort of flow diagrams are usually meant to be humorous. The author is not seriously telling you what to do, so don't take it so seriously. Plus, aside from the decision box "have you used an iPhone before", the logic of most of it was pretty spot on. I say that because I can imagine people who have not used an iPhone before and have no interest in owning an iPhone, so really there should be a decision box to boil it down to "do you want an iPhone".
Dump the iPhone. Get the new Galaxy Note 3 from Samsung, it's epic.
Dump the smart phone.
Share a nice conversation WITH a friend.
Smart phones are not only for conversations. The note 3 is work worthy, and the iPhone was meh in that arena. Not saying a good IRL conversation with a friend is a bad thing, that is always a must, but some conversations cannot be had in person (IRL) so this is where a nice smart phone comes in handy.
Wow, you really nailed every comment cliche there is, isn't there? NSA joke, "As a Swede", "I don't want to live on this planet anymore".
Try not to regurgitate bullshit if you want anyone to take your opinion seriously. You sound like a satire of the average Internet commenter.
Hehe, yeah maybe I do sound like the avrage internet commenter. And for good reason?
Are there people still beliving this kind of survalence is a good thing? And do people still think our personal informations isn't tossed around between govs and companies like flyers?
At least I reply to comments instead of just regurgitate unrealated bullshit about what I belive is proper bullshit.
-I dont want to live on this planet anymore
Who cares about fingerprint scanners? You are either a really dumb criminal who has neglected to wear gloves, or a person who is paranoid about nothing. Either way, if you paranoia or criminal tendencies run deep, you have two choices, A: don't buy anything with a fingerprint scanner, and B: start a kickstarter for skin grafts to change your fingerprints every year. (currently there are no laws against fingerprint modification) But you'r still screwed when the put in a DNA scanner.
like Micheal replied I'm impressed that a stay at home mom can make $9079 in
