Creating Your Own Blog Using Wordpress

  1. 1. Apple's face recognition software works on cats (from The Times Online) Stop press! The new iPhoto face recognition software that comes in the new iLife package for Mac computers (out this week) is designed to make tagging photos in your library much quicker. You tell it who a person is and it automatically goes and finds the same faces in other pics and tags them with that name. Useful if you have a big selection of digital photos. Now Webomatica has found that it works on cats. I bet Apple was not counting on a revenue stream for iLife from cat lovers. Does it work on dogs, goldfish, hamsters... I wonder. . ICEBREAKER
