    I also just found out that BonziSoft after their "departure" when people noticed their shit is spyware, just rebranded themselves as 2KDirect.

    And guess what 2KDirect specializes in: .....targeted advertizing

    And guess who is one of their biggest partners is.... Microsoft.

    Yeah what I'm claiming is that potentially BonziSoft (aka. 2KDirect) had worked on the Windows/Bing/Xbox advertizing.

    How fucking ironic.

    Idk, somehow I feel like the DMV is a more effective tool. And has been for quite a while.

    @legionfrontier but you would never have thought that a company like Microsoft would use their stuff, and if the "crowd" found out it will be bad PR all over the place

    I only use devRant and Snapchat. I only made a snapchat because my friends forced me into it.

    "Created by the FBI" seems like a stretch. Used by the FBI is a more realistic story tbh.

    And like @ChachiKlaus said. If they want a facial database, use license photos. Everyone of age has one and it's a necessity to even live at some points.

    @jhh2450 didnt made the pic, someone my group site brought attention to me about it also why only stop at "everyone of age"? the gov sure wont and its the easiest to get the scan without raising eyebrows, also check the info on the patent document, it records more than just the face...

    @legionfrontier I respect your opinion man. But I personally disagree and I think there is a lot of valid evidence as to why this is unlikely, but I don't think this is the place to debate it. Do you guys have a subforum? I'd be interested to hear more of what you think, but full disclosure. It's unlikely I'll agree. I should add, I think the FBI and NSA can have incredibly nefarious intentions especially with tech companies, just not in this instance.

    @Michelle It's often a matter of logical thinking. Snapchat is directly integrated into multiple mass surveillance programs as well so that's a facial recognition goldmine for the agencies in the US!

    @ChachiKlaus Keep in mind that all major US Internet companies are directly integrated within mass surveillance programs. So yes, I actually find this very logical.

    *tinfoil hat equipped*

    Well duh, how else would they get people to willingly upload their "details", to feed the facial recognition AIs :p

    All them cameras on the streets. (:

    @linuxxx I definitely agree with that. I just would also say, the vast majority of facial data to be matched with a name and any governmental identifying feature is already in use in numerous preexisting realms. IDs, passports, CCTV. My assumption is a company like Palantir already has access to the vast majority of that information simply due to things like travel and commerce. The FBI and CIA have been astonishingly good at finding people long before they did it digitally. Just my two cents. But you're right, the government's ability to invade privacy is pretty much otherworldly, so to be clear I'm not saying it's impossible. I would personally need more evidence.

    I wrote this feature for Snapchat. And yes, the first few weeks we spent with the FBI and CIA. The actual face recognition thingy had a lot of bugs, so now we just use the cameras secretly and have people manually verifying each face detection. We store all data. Lol
