Google, the smart cookies that they are, added Face Recognition to its photo service (Picasa) today.  It’s a pretty straight forward service. You just associate a name with a face, and Google will proceed to search, and index the rest of your photos and tag faces accordingly.  I have yet to try it out, but I’m sure some will welcome the service with open arms, while others will shiver in fear of ‘big brother’.  Cnet gave the service a complete once over and along the way discovered a few flaws, such as tagging bicycle wheels as people.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
