Google says NO to facial recognition apps on Google Glass

GOOGLEGLASSIn response to growing controversy over the expected privacy violations and facial recognition apps for Google Glass, Google Inc. officially denounced said apps in a blog post last night, citing that until said company can have concrete privacy ‘laws’ in place — no apps of any variation or kind will be available or approved for the Glass.

However, as noted (link) Hackers will probably quickly find a way around this. [Still, creepy].

“As Google has said for several years, we won’t add facial recognition features to our products without having strong privacy protections in place,” reads the post. “With that in mind, we won’t be approving any facial recognition Glassware at this time.”
