SG Comics Presents: Google & CNN Face Recognition Interview

Last week we had an episode that seemed almost like an April Fools prank between Google and CNN. You would think that these two big shots wouldn't run into such a PR problem. CNN may have been a little too enthusiastic on their reporting claiming Google was busy at work developing a facial recognition app, while Google may have been hyper-sensitive given their run in with the privacy police in the past.

Almost immediately after we posted the story originally sourced from CNN, we received a message from Google stating that the CNN report was purely speculative and soon thereafter received a rebuttal from CNN. It was quite entertaining, we must say, but it does bring up a lot of questions and concerns both on privacy as well as media reporting.
