Why everyone hated Apple and why they were wrong

Apple’s latest technical solutions have made a lot of noise. In the iPhone 7, the jack slot disappeared, in the new MacBook the usual connectors are replaced with USB Type-C and there is no memory card slot. Poster Daily recalls all the joys that engineers from Cupertino deprived us of, and why it is difficult to argue with them.
Apple for 30 years with an enviable persistence has been producing computers of closed architecture under the control of its own operating system. Neither the popularity of the PC as a gaming platform, nor the recognition in 2006 that Intel chips were better than their own could convince them of this.

Apple Pay is a payment system that allows you to pay for goods in stores by attaching an Apple mobile device to the terminal.

On Apple Watch, a payment is launched by double-clicking on the power button and does not require special authorization. Neither Apple Pay nor other payment services charge Continue reading

5 fashionable ways to hide from face identification

Today, the face recognition algorithm is used everywhere. And not only in professional tracking systems or smart web services, but in various entertainment applications and basic functions like autofocus. Poster Daily decided to try to trick the algorithm with makeup.

Different systems for recognizing a human face have different goals, which is why their algorithms differ. One of the first systems that were able to establish a person’s identity from a photo looked for nodal points on the image that made up the main features of the face, and measured the distance between them. The main measurement parameters are the distance between the eyes, the width of the nose, the depth of the orbit, the shape of the cheekbones, and the length of the jaw line. Key figures in digital terms Continue reading
