Some in the public are concerned about rice-sized microchips called RFIDs or Radio Frequency Identification chips which could be used to track humans like free range geese when placed subcutaneously, yet most people are not paying attention to what the Global Enslavement dudes potentially have up their sleeves for the future of smart phones. Like a fix in the house's favor at a casino blackjack table by stacking the decks using card-shuffling machinery, the allure of possibly winning at the game (getting the new, new technology) brings people to the table, yet the cost is pricey because people keep losing (fingerprint capture). 
Please say it ain't so Apple!
If it is true, this a bait and switch deception, amounting to deceit and trickery whacked over the skulls of an unquestioning and uninformed populace. For the people that may want to run out and buy the newest iPhone 5, even if it does indeed have a irremovable fingerprint security feature, I am talking to YOU. 
Equal parts incompetence and conspiracy is perhaps the most apt way to describe the root of the world's ills today. I am not freaked out by cell phones, in fact I am the proud owner of an iPhone 4. But if the new iPhone 5 phone does indeed have fingerprint capture, I will be sticking with my iPhone 4 until my time is up, 4G be damned!!! Perhaps, I'll go back to the Droid line of products (unless of course, Droid also begins utilizing this new mephitic and invasive "security fingerprint identification feature", in which case I shall use a tin can string phone and handwritten letters again).

What is wrong with a little anonymity for f*ck's sake? Am I wrong for not wanting to always let the beast know where I am, or what I am up to? Guess so, since most dip shits update their Facebook statuses every 3 minutes. Incriminating themselves through stupidity on FB. And, soon they may be giving unique fingerprint evidence to boot? 'I have nothing to hide' is the rationalization I hear from people going along with invasive nonsense most of the time, but certain things just go too far.
Remember, if the government criminalizes everything, then everyone is a criminal.
Sometimes I just feel like a thirty-five year OLD MAN. A tired OLD MAN who has watched as things have gone to hell in an overflowing hand basket. An old crotchety dude, just wishing for a place to chill and not think about the flippant craziness that surrounds me. Because nobody else, except a handful of my friends, seems to care.
People can't be bothered to think about the clamping down on civil liberties, the constant procuring of fear-based manufactured consent, the deliberate dumbing-down of our culture, the sickening perversion of the newest generation of Americans, the pilfering of entire economies to benefit a MINISCULE POCKET OF VERY GREEDY REPUGNANT OLIGARCHS, the poisoning of us through food, the ETC., AND ON, AND ON, AND ON.
I just want to escape and turn off my brain because I feel like I am on an island anyway; very few people get what I am saying, nor do they care about anything but mindless entertainment like sports (HELLO? ROME? cOLLosSEuM??).
As an exhausted citizen, I want to escape the bullshit of a batshit insane place called the human noosphere of earth (yes, the NOOSPHERE is a real layer of the atmosphere where human thought resides; a mental envelope, encircling the world, if you will).
We are stuck in this hyper-frenetic noosphere strata of insanity. It is such a weird world today; amusing to me at times, downright frightening the next.  I shouldn't feel like an OLD MAN or an ancient relic. It is just that fewer things seem to work out right - especially for Generations X and Y right now. Depression is becoming worse for most people who have brains and are capable of critical thinking.
Those of us who are intelligent can see all is not right with the world. Perhaps it never was, but we see the writing on the wall and we feel it will not get better unless we all get on board; realizing and releasing ourselves from our serfdom to financial oligarch pigs.
We are tired of things not working out; be they keeping or obtaining careers/jobs, harmony in families, home ownership, satisfaction-levels with companies and their customer circus service, stable prices on all necessities of life, or bloated promises by politicians. We are tired of overly-punitive criminal and administrative sentencing measures by the state and it's tentacle-minion-Frankenstein monster.  The 'courts' and 'regulatory bodies' and 'agencies' and 'bureaus' become harsher and more expensive on non-violent crimes and infractions.  At times, these punishments are gradually implemented, and at others they are foisted hastily upon the backs of the true citizens of this country through decree (executive order). We are tired of being groped, hassled, fondled, questioned, examined, exploited, numbered, tracked, listened-in-on, interrogated, inspected, and hopefully fingerprinted!! Seriously, most of us just aren't that interesting, so what the hell is the fuss all about, you fascist-socialist-communist-capitalist-Marxist whack job elitists?
If the iPhone 5 has an irremovable fingerprint scanner for 'SECURITY' purposes, I feel it will mark the true beginning of the mark of the beast, using that part of the user's physical uniqueness. And, with the potential for abuse, why would you voluntarily want to use a phone with this "security feature"? The bible says that the mark of the beast shall be on their heads, and a phone is on your head when you talk into it, no doubt.

Much like politicians pandering, I am an enigma. Solving only my own puzzle. Maybe?
