"This month, YC will be participating in Quora's most recent investment round and Quora will be joining this summer's YC batch.  This is a new experiment for us; we've funded later-stage companies before, but none close to Quora's stage.  Our hope is that both the company and the YC community will get a lot of value out of this.
We're not sure if it's something we'll do again; some of our experiments have worked and some of them haven't.  But Adam D'Angelo is awesome, and we're big Quora fans, so we're very excited to welcome Quora to the YC community.
Since it seems out of character for us, we thought we should say something about it.  Also, we won’t count Quora when we periodically announce stats on the YC portfolio.  Although they’re participating in the batch like any other company, they’re already so far along it doesn’t seem fair to include them."

Got much much much better for me.

"Touch ID takes a 88x88 500ppi scan of your finger and temporarily sends that data to a secure cache located near the RAM, after the data is vectorized and forwarded to the secure enclave located on the top left of the A7 near the M7 processor it is immediately discarded after processing. The fingerprint scanner uses subdermal ridge flows (inner layer of skin) to prevent loss of accuracy if you were to have micro cuts or debris on your finger.
With iOS 7.1.1 Apple now takes multiple scans of each position you place finger at setup instead of a single one and uses algorithms to predict potential errors that could arise in the future. Touch ID was supposed to gradually improve accuracy with every scan but the problem was if you didn't scan well on setup it would ruin your experience until you re-setup your finger. iOS 7.1.1 not only removes that problem and increases accuracy but also greatly reduces the calculations your iPhone 5S had to make while unlocking the device which means you should get a much faster unlock time."

Matthew Klein, writing for Bloomberg View:

"Alibaba is valued at about $153 billion, according to analysts surveyed by Bloomberg News. Yahoo itself is worth about $39 billion as of this writing and this includes its ownership of about 24 percent of Alibaba. If you subtract that out you are left with a company that’s worth just a little more than $2 billion — less than AOL Inc., Groupon Inc., or Zynga Inc.

Yahoo also has a 35 percent stake in Yahoo Japan, a publicly traded company now valued at about $32.3 billion. Subtract out Yahoo’s stake and this means that investors seem to value Yahoo’s own business at less than nothing — not what you would expect from a profitable enterprise."
