    This might be better suited in the Sandbox. Just a thought.

      Cameras do weird things when there are bright lights directly behind the subject. Although that could be something to watch out for it certainly doesn't indicate that the developers are dumb, just that they didn't foresee a random situation.

            The story made CNN. I think HP could be facing a potential PR problem here...and I'm not talking Project Reality.

              No.

              I think people are confused about the definition of the word ' racist '

              Its a bug, not a bigot ... next thing you know they will be blaming DOGS for global warming !

                        The only thing "racist" is that it seems not to have been tested very well, given that it is a known problem in photography that black faces are harder to handle with regards to contrast. There is nothing racist about the program or the computer.

                            Not racist, not sensible either.
