Face Recognition Technology Comes to Malls and Nightclubs

If this is all starting to sound creepy, you should ask yourself, what’s the harm? As long as all the data that’s collected is anonymous—that is, no one can be personally identified by the sensors, just their age and gender—there’s little reason to fear the technology. -times contributor Jerry Brito

"As long as"?

...yea, well we know it won't be. Companies won't be satisfied until they've perfected their advertising, and that means knowing everything they can about you, even if they intrude into your life and invade your space until you cringe.

Funny he wouldn't suspect that it could so incredibly easily be used to link your online identity to your real one by using online pictures easily found in FB or google+, because there's this article linked on the same page!

Google+ Adds New ‘Find My Face’ Facial Recognition Feature for Photos

Now Google+ can automatically look for your face in your friends' pictures—provided all of you opt into the system.

FB and google both invade your life. They take mountains of data and information on you, that you give them, then they say "We won't use this unless you let us," which is of course a front and a lie. (FB selling data. Google hacking WiFi networks using their streetview car -- "Oops! We didn't mean to. We wrote each line of code by accident!")

Social media or social invasion? Say NO to these invasive practices. I think I'm going to go back to snail mail.

It all really seems to tie together. We are on camera virtually everywhere now. Local grocery, stoplights, nightclubs, etc. 2011 looks more like "1984" than 2010 (the odyssey that it was). The good news, imho, is that the lights will go out at some point.

Closer and closer we slide towards the Mark and we have gone willingly.
Little steps of stones make great pyramids when placed into focus.

It really doesnt surprise me at all.

I mean, what do Americans expect?
You want a life filled with material things and money..."the American Dream" right?
Well then this is what you get.

I don't see anyone fighting this technology, I see the opposite.

Embrace the technology because soon, you won't be able to live without it.
It's not about's about money.
Companies need to make more money.

Living without technology?
It will be a choice soon enough.
