Last I checked on my Samsung Galaxy SII (with ICS 4.0.3), the "Face Unlock" feature was aptly labeled as "Low Security, Experimental".

The only item marked as "High Security" is the password option.

I don't have an S3, but from what I've read the UI/OS version is pretty close at the moment (4.0.3 vs. 4.0.4). And I do believe, correct me if I'm wrong, that "Face Unlock" is still labeled the same.

I think the problem lies with the headline for the article:
"UT Dallas Professor Captures the Mobile Interactions of 175 Texas Teens"

Makes it sound like the Professor built some sort of tower and/or monitoring device and took the information against the will/knowledge of the Blackberry recipient.

A better (truthful?) headline would have read:
"UT Dallas Professor Studies the Mobile Interactions of 175 Texas Teens"

I was semi-excited there for a minute.

'Detroit' as he refers to are now multi-nationals

OMG no way!

they have their own R&D factories

OMG no way!

In all seriousness, though:
Yes what you said is obviously true, but the idea that because they have their own R&D and have researched this before doesn't mean this company hasn't figured out a better way to do it.
I'm not saying that they have figured out a better way, but to dismiss something as 'oh, well that's been tried before' isn't a good basis
