HP is in a lot of trouble lately if I am judging by the amount of bad press the video below brought the company. To make a long story short, a man by the name of Desi was playing around with his new HP laptop that is supposed to include Facial Tracking capabilities. That means, when you move, the webcam tracks you and moves with you. One slight problem, it wasn’t working. Well, to Desi’s surprise, when he conducted the same test with his Caucasian friend Wanda, all of a sudden, the facial tracking worked. Everyone is pointing fingers at HP and half jokingly (I think) calling them racists. Watch the video, then get ready to laugh when watching the second video!
Supposedly, HP has contacted the people in the video, and they are dealing with it. This story got a whole lot funnier when I came across an old Apple iMac ad someone posted on Twitter. I am not going to describe the video to you, but suffice to say, in light of HP’s current predicament, this video absolutely cracked me up. So, putting aside all the different points brought up in the average Mac VS. PC debate, next time someone asks me why I use a Mac, my immediate response will be “Watya mean? Because they’re not racist!”
