Image Matrix Tech on Sky News: Face ID mask feature tested

In Sunday’s segment on Sky News Australia (Weekend Edition with Tim Gilbert) we discussed Apple’s testing of FACE ID for mask wearers. You can try it yourself with iOS 15.4 Public Beta.

A public beta is a test version of the phone’s operating system – not recommended for all people but Apple’s public betas are pretty reliable.

I tested it repeatedly and it passed with flying colours. So no more frustrating check-ins or payments at the checkout while wearing a mask. What does this mean for the return of TOUCH ID? We discuss.

GODZILLA VS KONG MOST PIRATED FILM OF 2021

A new report from AKAMAI and MUSO shows piracy is on the rise during the pandemic. There were 82 billion visits to piracy websites between January and September 2021 (Movies and TV alone). Despite streaming services making some movies available online earlier – many are still choosing to pirate videos. Streaming services make pirating easier due to high quality copies.

The top pirated film of 2021 was Godzilla vs Kong while the top TV shows were from the MCU and Game of Thrones Season 8 was another top target for pirates. The AKAMAI report goes into great detail about piracy and why it continues to happen in vast numbers.

“For some people, since the content isn’t physical, downloading a copy or re-streaming an event isn’t perceived as theft. The original remains — or the broadcast still took place.”

The total number of piracy site visits is much greater when you add music and books to the discussion.
