I don't have a Face ID device, so my perception is probably biased, but when it comes to something like Apple Pay, it appears to be inferior. For unlocking though, Face ID seems to be well ahead but if Touch ID iPhones had the ability to wake by tapping the screen, I don't think there would be much in it.
I'm not surprised fingerprint authentication is still popular. When introduced, it was a million times better than entering a code and given that facial recognition comes at a premium (the iPhone XR has other compromises) and manufacturers of Android phones haven't been able to match the security of Apple's Face ID it's not really a surprise that their popularity has endured.

Imagine not being paid enough to do your job. The service industry in the US is stacked in favour of the business running the service and it's employees rely on their patrons to make up the rest. 20% is an unbelievable amount in my opinion but what's worst is that these experiments to do away with tips are failing. Employees should be paid appropriately by their employers and there should be nothing else to say on the matter.

There's no way this is real. Right? I looked at who was tagged in the photo to find out more and first up was @ceramicpro who have a video where they are 'testing' their digitalized protection film - available 2023.
The second tag was for @bad.not.bad who shared the same video. Real or not, it's a very interesting idea.

Really informative and interactive piece by The Pudding on how countries are redefining regions in order to secure more funding.
They've done a great job of visualising how developed Europe is by country and regions.
