The JoyPoll was...

What is your biggest concern about a switch from fingerprint readers to facial recognition?

  • It won't be as convenient to unlock my iPhone.
  • It will give false readings, like if I'm wearing sunglasses, or get puffy eyes, etc
  • My evil twin will be able to unlock my iPhone.
  • My now obsolete fingerprints will get low self-esteem.
  • I have no concerns, I trust Apple!
  • How the heck am I going to afford this new iPhone!!!

About us...

The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture, created by Nitrozac and Snaggy, and updated three times a week. We like to feature the people and events that are making today's tech and pop culture news.

We've been making comics on the web since early 1999, and The Joy of Tech is now in its, whoa... 16th year.

You can follow us on Google+ at +Nitrozac JoT and +Snaggy JoT and +JoyofTech

We currently live on Vancouver Island, Canada, where we have a lovely perspective of the silicon valleys to the south. We make The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our MacBook Pros, running Mac OS X. We use software from Apple, Adobe, BBedit,, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to draw her illustrations.
