Opinion: iPhone Technology To Change Lives
PERSONAL PRIVACYOctober 7, 2011
New iPhone plans will bring highly sophisticated facial recognition technology to millions of users, reports Kit Eaton for Fast Company. The technology will allow for automatic identification of photo subjects, authorization of online payments and potentially perform lip reading. But Eaton wonders if iPhone manufacturer Apple will also use the technologies for advertising efforts. "The ubiquitous use of face IDs and deep integration of social networking into iOS 5 will be bound to cause hand-wringing about the erosion of personal privacy," Eaton writes.
