I couldnt stop laughing at this article, where HP's new face tracking software for it's webcams doesn't detect black faces.

HP have acknowledged the defect and are looking to fix the issue.

Perhaps they didnt test enough people with different skin pigmentations/colours to ensure the product worked with a reasonable amount of success :D
