If people used strong passwords we wouldn't need this.
Oh god that face is horrifying
:10bux: most people here will use their dick as a login picture
Aaaaand in before someone sues them for "using a pattern to unlock a device"

The galaxy nexus smartphone does this yet you don't see that going in the news.
I didn't get it at first, I thought it was like a face recognition thing where a web cam would look at you or something.
Hasn't this been announced in //build/?
Meh i will stick with my good ol' password Or the finger scanner on my laptop which works great
My mom could use this, half her passwords are tennis
Just jam your finger all over the goddamn screen

I'd put the picture as my dick, and make the user have to rub up and down it with their finger. Nobody would try and get in then.

"Interesting and cute" but not functional or useful to anyone who can create and remember a secure password.

Seems kind of gimmicky, I doubt most people would ever use it, other than to just try it out once or twice.
I'd use it.
[QUOTE=kaze4159;33795998]:10bux: most people here will use their dick as a login picture[/QUOTE] What if someone needs to unlock their laptop in public? "Hmm i need you to turn around for a second.." "Why? it's just a picture of your face.." "Yeah.. about that.."
I'd rather use a regular password. And, i really don't want a touch screen either. For me, computer is all about mouse+keyboard.
Windows 8 looks pretty lame to be honest.
I wonder: What would I forget faster? A password or a sequence of gestures which mustn't be obvious enough for other people to guess? PS: He tapped his mother.

what if you put a mirror up against the laptop will it become self aware
[QUOTE=Bobie;33798466]what if you put a mirror up against the laptop will it become self aware[/QUOTE] I'm concerned about people being more self-aware and reading more than just the headlines.
The Android pattern lock screen thing is effective, I like it. Much less gimmicky than this.

Unless the user was as crazy as to use the curtain or dresser in the background as part of their login.
