A final recap on "Face Hello"

It’s the often told story of Apple vs. MSFT. Since Win10 was published almost 30 months ago, I tried to use Windows Hello in terms of facial recognition. Long story short, it never run on any of my systems – cause there was not a single appropriate device that I was ready to buy. Neither a webcam (beyond Intel's not deliverable dev kit or Logitechs over-priced brio cams) nor a notebook was available and/or suitable for me.

A bunch of people bought a Surface Book, one of the rare devices supporting facial recognition, but this hybrid notebook is so ludicrous in many ways, that I was not ready to reach out for it.
When Apple announced Face ID I was ready to quash it. I assumed it will never work as well as Touch ID. And I laughed about the awkward notch. Then I bought an iPhone X.*

After 2 weeks (I could also say: after 2 hours) I can say with persuasion, Face ID works. Flawlessly. Fast. Superfast. With much less exceptions than Touch ID. And the "attention aware" feature really amazes me technologically.
Yes, it's the same old story. It's not enough to prototype a good idea. Shipping makes a product. Apple delivered.

* In case you wonder, why I bought an iPhone X: My primary concern was the camera. I was so curious, that I was ready to spent the Apple fee. I nearly bought a Pixel 2, but there is one issue that stopped me from it: I cant cope to use Android. I am sorry.
