FIDO Alliance for PC/Phone authentication uses retina, not fingerprint too. Fingerprints are deemed too unreliable or even untrustworthy. This is why Microsoft Devices, such as Surface 4 and Lumia 950, don't have fingerprint readers, and use retina scanning for...

When I read the headline, I was almost expecting to see another airline flying ex CBR. Too much to hope for I suppose
Nov 06, 2016, 11.46 PM / China Eastern eyes Aussie market with more flights, new routes
I hope Virgin leapfrogs Qantas by introducing electronic ink tags like BA, factoring in both RFID as well using agreed standards. Luggage tags, rather than being an object of privilege, acquired through status or bought for a premium, could be tailored to the individual with unique patterns...

Glad to see Queenstown on the list. I have to agree. Also note that it is awesome being in the bus going up to the Remarkables and seeing what appear to be wee little A320s and B737s coming into land below.

Jul 02, 2012, 01.00 PM / Will QantasLink soon fly to Toowoomba?
Clive Berghofer, the former mayor, did a good job of reducing the town's chance of getting anything more than a Dash8-200 service, by developing right up to the airport's boundary. The runway is too small for even Q400s. The next closest airport is Oakey, but as an army aviation training centre,...

Kingfisher was meant to fill the gap, wasn't it?

Spinoza, I agree. If the phone meets your needs, it works, and gets the information you need without compromising your own, that is all that matters. That is why iOS is still the most desireable Phone OS in Australia. I must admit, I am craving the release of a Nokia running W...
