Mike wants to know if the camera will always be on if the iPhone relies on facial recognition. Leo says that's a good question, but he has a hunch that it won't be. But that means users have to press a button or raise it up to access it. It won't be instant, but Leo also expects that this first iteration won't be very good either.
Rick wants to know what alternatives he has to Google's Picasa. Leo says that since Google killed Picasa, they've moved all the tools and incorporated them into Google Photos. Leo says that it's very good and gives him the benefit of categorization and organization of his photos through facial recognition and machine learning.
Steven is concerned that facial recognition on Google Photos will be used to stalk people. Leo says that Google does limit the facial recognition to only the user's personal feed. Of course that doesn't stop law enforcement and other government entities from being able to do it. Leo suspects that the technology will eventually get out there, though.
Ben wants to know if we can ever move beyond second factor authentication. Can we move on to fingerprint reading? Leo says that is also second factor authentication. It's not just something you have, it's also something you are.
Windows Hello is a new type of two factor authentication, which uses a special depth sensing webcam for facial recognition and will log you in based on your face. But we can surely get rid of passwords, it's really a terrible system.
Leo says he's pretty confident there will be a Surface Pro 4 when Windows 10 comes out, and he thinks it'll be a good choice. According to Paul Thurrott and Mary Jo Foley, Windows 10 should be out at the end of July. Alan wonders if the new Surface Pro is really going to be a big improvement over the Surface Pro 3, or if it just will lower the price of the Surface Pro 3. Leo says either way, he's golden! He'll get to choose. Leo thinks even the lower end Microsoft Surface 3 is a good choice.
