    For those of you who have upgraded to ICS and have tried out the facial recognition for unlock feature, how safe do you think this is. It clearly states that it is not as secure as the other methods, but I've tried to get everyone I come in contact with to try and open it and so far not 1 person can. Further more it can tell me apart whether I'm wearing glasses or sunglasses. I know it's experimental but it's pretty freakin cool.

    I can hold up a picture of myself and it unlocks. Not very secure. :)

    Yeah I didn't even think about that. It won't be too far off for some sort of biometric lock on phones...
