Glassholes by Anthony Freda

A Mini NSA On Your Face

eOnline reports:

A new app will allow total strangers to ID you and pull up all your information, just by looking at you and scanning your face with their Google Glass. The app is called NameTag and it sounds CREEPY.

The “real-time facial recognition” software “can detect a face using the Google Glass camera, send it wirelessly to a server, compare it to millions of records, and in seconds return a match complete with a name, additional photos and social media profiles.”

The information listed could include your name, occupation, any social media profiles you have set up and whether or not you have a criminal record (“CRIMINAL HISTORY FOUND” pops up in bright red letters according to the demo).

Since the NSA is tapping into all of our digital communications, it is not unreasonable to assume that all of the info from your digital glasses – yup, everything – may be recorded by the spy agency.

Are we going to have millions of mini NSAs walking around recording everything … glassholes?

It doesn’t help inspire confidence that America’s largest police force and Taser are beta-testing Google Glasses.

Postscript: I love gadgets and tech, and previously discussed the exciting possibilities of Google Glasses.

But the NSA is ruining the fun, just like it’s harming U.S. Internet business.

    “Ruining the fun”, you say? Imposing a totalitarian state certainly does ruin the fun. But let’s go a little deeper, back to 1964 when Dr. John Lilly attempted to warn Johnson’s White House of the imminent invasion of silicon-based lifeforms. Lilly was experimenting with psychedelics in his own inner space vehicle he called a “sensory deprivation tank” and he had a vision of a stealthy and deeply insidious intrusion into our organic world of a sentient non-carbon based life masquerading as “computers”. Later, this idea morphed into a popular film called “The Matrix”. When Agent Brown deplored his posting in our world, it was the “stink” that most got to him. And they are well-established in their NSA now, all secretly holding their noses as they implement their strategy to strangle all biological life. Yes, they are ruining the fun.

    Anthony Freda’s art work is priceless and his piece conveys to me that the
    evil creatures that have seized control of our lives are really not
    even human.

    David Icke sees them as reptilian! Ha Ha.

    I see them as a row of horses asses that are full of oats! Ha. Ha.
