    Is there a difference between Apple's and Microsoft's two facial-recognition technologies?
    Convenience and security are often at odds in the tech world, but that hasn't stopped most companies from attempting to fuse the two. With Microsoft, we have Windows Hello, a biometric system that can log you in with a fingerprint, or facial or iris scans. Apple, which uses Touch ID as a fingerprint login system, has now come up with something new, first unveiled at the September 2017 Apple event.
    Apple wants to get rid of the iPhone's Home button and with it TouchID, so it's testing out what it calls "Face ID" on the upcoming iPhone X. Face ID works in a similar way to Windows Hello, in that it uses an IR sensor and camera to identify your face for a fast, secure login. There are, however, some differences between the two technologies, which we'll examine here.
