I was a guest on HuffPost Live this afternoon to discuss my previous This Week In Apple Rumors column, specifically the rumor that the next iPhone would include fingerprint detection technology.

To catch you up to speed, in mid-2012 Apple paid over $350 million for a fingerprint detection company called AuthenTec; this past week, the respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple's new iPhone would include fingerprint scanning technology underneath the home button. In the clip below, I discuss what that technology might mean for the next iPhone, and how it could revolutionize the smartphone as we know it.

We also discuss marijuana storage and phone sex, naturally.



Before you ask: Yes, I am wearing makeup; and yes, it does make me feel pretty.
