Apple is finally putting its 2010 purchase of Polar Rose, one of the companies behind Recognizr, and have facial recognition capabilities in the iPhone 5. Interestingly, Apple seems to have decided not to use the tech in its proprietary apps, and will instead open APIs for developers to use facial recognition features in 3rd party apps...

im never saying android makes me anything.. i choose android simply because i can make it unique and does everything i need.. yea there is no bad product that sales your right, but since the iphone was one of the first nicer touch screen phones most people are stuck with the mantality that its the one and only best phone. Thats not true anymore now there are better phones, im not saying iphone is a bad product but you speak of it as its a perfect device.... i havnt played super mario galaxy lol

Wait GALAXY-S is now being made fun of by taco50 because he named himself after the Samsung Galaxy S? You taco50 named yourself after food! You know a taco. So I guess you like tacos & probably eat 50 at a time huh? I would watch my health is I where you. lol So with your “logic” you are a sheep because "you name yourself after a taco douche" taco50 can you see how stupid your comment is? It's not even fun reading your posts anymore. I lose brain cells reading your posts because of how dumb they are. You sound like an inferior minded person handicapped by plain and unadulterated stupidity. How can you formulate a comment like that? You make fun of GALAXY-S's name when yours is taco50. WHAT?!? lmao You are a true marvel of the human race. You are a legend that won't be topped for the next 100 years. People like you only come once every 100 years. You are SPECIAL. (Special ED) lol Ohh I hope your Mom & Dad paid your phone bill. (Just looking out for my favorite 16 year old!)

taco50 YOU ARE THE BOY! lol

Google bought Android, so I guess using your logic nothing Android does can ever be innovative.

The rumor is they also wanted to do Ass Recognition, but it kept zeroing in on Steve Jobs.
