    A new iPhone app just came out that uses face recognition to tell you who the celebrity is. Like Shazam, except it uses video instead of audio to ID the person. Pretty wild. But would you use it?

    I could see this being especially useful for TiVo users because you could pause and rewind until you get a good shot of the actor you're trying to identify. Anybody heard of this or tried it yet?

    Ha, ha. Just installed it on iPhone 5 and tested it. It thought Jennifer Lawrence was Kevin Costner.

    Kinda like the Kindle x-ray app that identifies the actors when they appear in the film.
