Your iPhone will know who you are!

Apple was granted a patent that uses facial recognition technology to control a computing device, like an iPhone, iPad or Mac.  The hope is that this will allow for a more secure and productive operating environment. 

Apple’s patent comprises three separate systems: a face detection decision application; a face recognition application; and an input/output control application. These systems work together to detect whether a user is authorized to operate a given device, and if so, activate certain functions.
