Does anyone know if the Faces functionality on the iPad will work if I don't have iLife 09?
No, it won't. In the videos, Apple states that you must have a Mac with iPhoto for Faces and Places to work. I'm certain they're referring to a version of iPhoto that supports those features. Otherwise, a Mac with iPhoto would not be a requirement.
I didn't know if that meant it would sync the Faces and Places data from iLife 09 or if iLife 09 was required. I was hoping that I could still tag photos with faces and places data on the iPad itself.
We might not know 100% until we have it in our hands. But it seems like the Apple rep said that it would require a Mac, which tells me that you can't do that in the Photos.app on the iPad itself.
The Photos.app from the iPad simulator has no capabilities to edit faces or places on the iPad itself - I take this to mean that you need to have iPhoto on your mac.
Since the iPad will be purchased by Windows users also I believe faces etc. will work on it.
My impression, which does make sense if you think about it, was that you need a Mac running iLife '09 with Faces & Places data to be able to sync Faces & Places data onto your iPad. Unfortunately, my iMac, which has all of my media on it, doesn't have iLife '09 like my MBP does
No it won't you have to have a mac to get that feature. Most people that use windows won't miss it because they don't have it. Just like people that don't have ilife09 wont miss because they don't have it now.
Well, Picassa offers similar functionality, but I don't know if only Picassa can read the Faces/Places data or if you can sync the data to other devices.
Since the geotag is embedded in the picture files, you'd think at least places would work on the iPad without iPhoto, but there's the catch I guess.
I've got to say, I really do want a Mac.
It's called apple wants money. You need to have iLife 09 and a mac. Confirmed by apple rep.
Faces doesn't work, anyway. Every time I put my picture in there, it keeps coming back as a match for George Clooney.
He's here all week!
From the keynote from Steve himself: "And if I'm on a Mac, I can also get Events, Faces, and Places from iPhoto."
Steve Jobs has already answered this question: http://www.tuaw.com/2010/03/22/another-week-another-terse-email-from-steve-jobs/
If one embeds GPS Data will this feature work? What about categories, if our images are tagged will the program divide them into categories.
I so wanted to sig this but MacRumors doesn't allow quotes in signatures.
U can buyz mac fer facez.

Actually it's called running the face recognition algorithm on the iPad would be too slow and/or kill the battery in a hurry.
(This is not to be confused with the face detection part of the process, which the iPad probably could handle since most digital cameras can do it with no sweat.)
Absolutely. I leave iPhoto open most of the time cuz it's always churning out something up there next to "Faces".
That blows. It would be fun to sig a few of these "ipad will fail" quotes for the 3rd of April.
is that why you need a mac to have ilife?
Huh? You need a Mac because they only make iLife for Macs.
exactly so you buy a mac thus giving apple money. apple can make ilife for windows if they wanted but they dont. cause of money.
Are you implying that Apple would make iLife for Windows and make it free? If not, Apple would still be getting your money.
I think your tinfoil hat may need refitting.
Are people really going to buy a Mac just so they can tag faces on their iPad?
