Why is that creepy? Point and shoot cameras and some Android phones already do that. Aside from it not being new, though, I don't see the creepy part. So they will provide an API for "did someone blink?" confirmation messages for camera apps.

My Galaxy Note could detect smiling, and I think blinking too. I don't know how it's creepy. Actually helpful taking pictures of kids. It doesn't snap until they smile.

How is this creepy exactly?

What is creepy is is Apples implentation of NFC in conjunction with homeland security to report your location if you are scanned.

Considering this is just blink and smile detection for camera apps.  Yes subby Google is in fact "this creepy".

/It isn't actually creepy.

The article didn't say it was creepy, just subby.

There are lots of new APIs, but I'm pretty sure the NDA you sign when you download the SDK prohibits posting header files to the internet, especially since the SDK for 7 is still in pre-release.

When you blink, your iPhone will moon you.

This is why I keep saying that people who make these submissions should be identified, so that someone makes a dumbass submission, we can all point fingers and laugh at subby.

If only everyone was a moran and picked easily hackable phones for the sole sake of marketing, like you.

The topic you made up just now that isn't reality based? Yes, let's discuss that.

Just like this generation and last generation were supposed to have it as a killer feature, right?

Ok here is apples patent they were awarded for it.

Here is one they filed in 2008 with regards to the TSA and Homeland security and the use of NFC and Iphones.

First, do you have any idea how many patents are filed from companies and never implemented?

Second, the articles you mentions talk about using the patent for TSA check ins for flights. It doesn't mention Homeland security.

Put away the tinfoil hat.

Hint: the R in SLR stands for Reflex (the mirror) so "mirrorless SLR" is a contradiction.

One of the very neat accessibility features in iOS is that the camera app can optionally use voiceover to allow blind users to take pictures of their friends and family.

However, since subby is a farking idiot you can see why we shouldn't allow blind users to know when the subject is smiling, or if they happened to take a a shot while the subject was blinking.

Those would be horrible, creepy things.

Ok... but why would a blind person want to take a photograph? That seems... a little bit odd. Like a deaf person recording the audio from a concert.

You don't think blind people should be able to send photos to family and friends?

Blind people are subhuman and shouldn't be allowed to take pictures of their children to send to friends and family.

If you can't believe subbytard, on this, who can you believe?

You are correct. I forgot about the true status of the blind folk. Plus, it's not like they are in this thread.

Don't be silly. Blind people don't have friends. Except the ones who have only recently lost the use of their sight and their friends haven't abandoned them yet.
