Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

I just wonder how old are you Thom?
What was yours first computer? What was your "computer path"? Did you ever had Amiga?...

Beside, title and intro are confusing.

And regarding multiuser suport for tablets - "face login" ability would be perfect for this! It would be fast and simple way for multiuser funcionality on tablets.

What about a finger print reader on the home button?

Well, call me old fashioned but I'm actually not very fond of these face 'n' finger identifiers. Give me a login and password and I can log in with a mask on and no fingers. Ehm, well with at least one finger of course.

No fingers necessary, just use your tongue (though not when your significant other is in the room. This is not anecdotal. Really. I mean it!)

I have some Compaq iPaq with finger print reader ;)

:D ... yea... maybe not best idea. but still - selecting user and typing password seems to complicated for tablets... maybe selecting user and drawing pass like on Androids is winning combination ;)
