    Whoops. Might want to make that a bit more difficult.

    I knew this was more of a novelty and marketing feature than anything.

    Well, they could update the software so that it doesn't unlock until the eyes blink or something. But really, what I like about this is that my phone will unlock when I pick it up and look at it.

    It is still safe against random strangers taking your phone unless they happen to have a picture of you for some strange reason.

    Good to know though as it won't work against the clever wife or the girlfriend.

    if some stranger has a picture of me on their phone, I think I have bigger issues than someone stealing my phone and going through it.

    Visidon App Lock has been doing this for awhile on Gingerbread phones - and can do it for individual apps as well. Works great most of the time, but sometimes it, too, is a little too lenient - though you can change how "strict" it is.

    Just FYI...

    I find it annoying to have to swipe to unlock every time I want to use my phone. I agree, I likes it too!

    They should put a fingerprint reader on the side so it unlocks when you pick it up.

    You can get a subdermal implant with one of those NFC chips and when you pick up the phone it knows it's in your hand .
