Many of us have trouble envisioning a world without iPods, iPhones, and other iAwesome ways to connect with each other and listen to tunes, but Apple has really outdone itself this time. The new iPhoto face-recognition software that comes in the new iLife package for Mac computers is designed to make tagging photos in your library much quicker. You tell it who a person is, and it automatically goes and finds other pictures of that person and tags them with his or her name. Pretty incredible as is, right? But here’s the coolest part—it also works for cats!

Now, you and I know that every cat is a unique and special individual, but who knew that the folks at Apple were cat people, too? We’re so pleased at Apple’s acknowledgment that cats are members of the family that we’re sending Apple a certificate of recognition today.

You can show your love for Apple, too, by posting a comment below.
