    I don't know if this has been discussed or not...but I hadn't seen it anywhere. But, today I stopped by Verizon to get something straightened out with a bill...and figured I'd ask the Rep if he knew any word on 2.1's release this month...he told me anywhere from the 15th to the 30th of this month...but anyway I digress. He asked if I had heard about any of the new apps with 2.1...and I mentioned Google Earth...and he said yeah yeah, but had I heard about the new lock app to lock the phone with...he said most people hadn't heard about this but its supposed to be released with 2.1...he said u hold your camera lens on the phone up to your eyeball and it scans your eye and unlocks the phone!! I said no way. I am not making this up guys...I just wanted to hear your guys' 2 cents on this topic so I figured I'd share...do u all think he was messing with me? I hope not...but I mean I really don't see the point in why he would've lied about it...he was pretty convincing...

    I highly doubt this to be the case. First thing that comes to mind is trying to get the thing working (with known poor camera hardware) during an emergency situation. Next thing that comes to mind is that if someone develops an app that blows the flash during that time, there could be trouble with lawsuits, etc.

    He is full of sh!t.

    A retinal scanner works (kinda) similar to a scanner; it reflects light off your retina, and the droid does not have the physical hardware to make this possible.

    The only app that I know of that (may) be able to do this is BioWallet. It's been in development and is suppose to be released Q1 this year. The developers are in Spain so hopefully we will see it when it releases.

    I quick search turned up the v0.1.1 beta available for download on a credible forum (posted yesterday). I will wait to see if this is a real apk and not some kind of fake. Anyone brave enough to try it?

    I was going to mention this. It was a winner of last years Google app challange, but hasn't hit the street yet. been in closed Beta over a year. I hope it is not vaporware 'cause it would be really cool if it works (I would pay for it).

    its a nice idea but wouldnt it be a pain in the butt to scan your retina to lock and unlock your phone? it's a very time consuming process, no? ppl are complaining now about swiping a few lock pattern. lol .

    There's no way. The Droid camera is not able to focus at anything closer than about 3 or 4 inches away. At that distance, your retina would take up so little of the sensor that it would be impossible to decipher any detail (not enough resolution). Beyond that, it if ever does manage to come into being with the current hardware, I hope you never have to use your phone in a dark (or even dim) environment.

    I heard it's going to be an 'internal' scan, let's hope the vibrate feature works:icon_ banana:

    wonder if someone will write a colonoscopy app, save that trip to the doctors office.:icon_ devil:

    I know what you mean...when I started this thread I never intended for all the anal, rectal topics. I guess that's the kind of stuff most of these geeks think about regularly...weird...

    Since this thread has veered off topic from what the OP intended it to be, I am shutting it down. Come on Everyone, Lets keep this place Family Oriented, and keep the snipes/bashing to a minimum.
