Lock them up!

It seems to be working just fine.

The Amazon facial ID tool only fingered 28 members of Congress? Send that defective thing back to development.

Old Joke time--forgive me?

"Whats the opposite of progress?"


Yes, Le Petomane, the correct number should be around 538...

The remaining members of Congress could not be pegged as suspects because they are in the Witless Protection Program.

To quote my mom "I don't know what you've done, but I know you did something".

Facial recognition. You mean it can tell if you've had a facial...?

Somehow, I think the word "Wrongly" was ill chosen.

Well, 28 is a good start.

WEll it sounds like they were right.

And now Apple wants to use facial recognition instead of a password on the iPhone.
