Well ... that happened.
We've seen much intrigue and desire to tinker with the iPhone 5s's new Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Some claimed progress at a full hack of it; others included their pets in the fun; but the latest "testing and trialing" includes a Digital Trends tech news writer using his (::coughcough::) "nether region" to unlock the device — with success.
"Not only did I successfully register this private part with relative ease, I was also able to use it to unlock the device," wrote Andrew Couts, the author of the article suggestively titled "Apple iPhone 5S ‘Touch ID’ works with a lot more than just your fingerprints."
Couts said Apple's Touch ID sensor had little trouble recognizing and recording the print left by his member. In fact, he went on to explain that "Given that you leave your fingerprints everywhere, and that hackers have already broken through Touch ID’s defenses using a photocopy of a fingerprint and some wood glue, your manhood may be the most secure option you have."
Of course, Couts also called using his junk to access the phone "gross," "absurd" and "impractical," but, hey, to each his own.
