That's wild. Wonder if groups can surreptitiously use this technology to identify a user- - even when they do not want to be identified during a call?

Good question. I can imagine google, facecrook, or government agencies desperately partnering with carriers if this gets on phones. Now with this technology, they'll be able to mine more precise data on your call activity from ANY phone, creating an even more creepy profile on it's users...

This info is pretty interesting, but I personally see no use for this other than real security in like companies and stuff since it is definitly not convinient at least compared to the other security features already available for phone like fingerprints, just imagined wat happened if you lost or broke the headphones, probably just had to switch back to pins and patterns.
And even if they get to implement it onto the phones earpiece, it will be weird to litft it to the ear to unlock... just saying.

Replacing fingerprint scanners on smartphones in the future is NOT a logical possibility. Hold your phone to your ear to unlock/pay? Yeah right.

Do you always need the earbud in your ear? Kinda cumbersome if you ask me.

A second? That's an eternity... And you have to hold it up to your ear? Doesn't sound like a convenient replacement, sorry too obtrusive.
