Court rules that cops can compel you to surrender your fingerprint to unlock iPhone

A Virginia Beach Circuit Court judge ruled that law enforcement officials can compel you to unlock your smartphone with a fingerprint, but that they can't force you to enter in your passcode or password to unlock your device. Judge Steven Frucci says that obtaining a fingerprint is like obtaining a DNA sample or a physical key, things that would have to be surrendered in an investigation anyways. Passcodes would be considered knowledge, and not a physical object, so they deserve more protection under the law.

iPad Air 2 vs iPhone 6 camera comparison

Anyone who has ever owned a current generation iPhone alongside a current generation iPad is probably already aware of the fact that the iPad's camera has never been given the same treatment. However, the iPad Air 2 may be Apple's attempt at changing that. With an all new 8 megapixel camera on a 1.12µm sensor, it definitely bests the original iPad Air in almost every area of photography. But what about the iPhone 6? Can the iPad actually stand on its own two feet where photography is concerned this time around? Let's find out!

Hands-on with the brand new Microsoft Band

Hands-on with the brand new Microsoft Band

Last night – in a somewhat bungled outing, no less – Microsoft officially joined the wearable market with the Microsoft Band. More a fitness band with benefits than a smartwatch, the big news for us is, is iOS and Mac support. Through the Microsoft Health app for iOS and OS X – also for Android and Windows – you can pair up your Band with your iPhone or your Mac.

We haven't seen it yet, but our buddy, Daniel Rubino, over at Windows Central sure has, and he's unboxed it and given it a thorough hands-on.

iPad Air 2 review

iPad Air 3 review

iPad Air 2 review

The iPad Air 2 is Apple's sixth-generation tablet, and the sum total of all the company's insight, experience, and engineering to date. It's as narrow as last year's model, yet even thinner and lighter. Its display is as sharp as ever, but now laminated and even better looking. It's got a camera that, for the first time, takes photography seriously. It connects to even faster networks. And it's got a processor that's so advanced and so powerful, it rivals laptops of not so very long ago.

The iPad was forged on the belief that technology alone is not enough. That personal computers had to become even more personal. That holding them in your hands — looking into the vast expanse of apps and the web, and manipulating it all directly, immediately, with the touch of a finger — enabled and empowered something more.

iPhones have gotten bigger and more capable. MacBook Airs have gotten more efficient and more accessible. And even as Apple shows us iPads journeying to the tops of mountains and the bottom of the seas, as they've been used to create new art and new enterprise alike — some have wondered how much space truly remains for Apple's tablet to live and grow between phone and laptop.

Does the iPad Air 2 answer that question? Read on to find out!

The regional grocery chain has decided not to switch off its NFC readers, something that has been done in other retailers planning to accept CurrentC, like CVS and RiteAid. Meijer's NFC readers were installed years ago for its own branded MasterCard and Visa cards, and a Meijer spokesperson confirmed that they can be used with Apple Pay
