This Download Squad story is terrifying. It says that Google is trying to figure out whether they should flip a switch on a facial recognition search engine.

Here's the terrifying part:

We're at the point where you could snap a person's face with Google Goggles and find out their entire life story: their employment, their friends, what they looked like before they dyed their hair. I don't know where the societal breaking point for pervasive, omnipresent technology is... but I think we're getting close.

The heartening part is that Google didn't just flip the switch; it sounds like they're considering the implications. But, still: Jesus fucking Christ.
