Today I was send a link by my friend R to the Face recognition page from BNZ. I kid you not. On the page they offer to analyze how you feel about money via your computer camera. If you think that is fun think again.
It is very easy to analyze any emotion (Shades of “Lie to me” anyone?) with this kind of technology and while you may still think that if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear millions of people who died innocently in Russia’s Gulags dare to differ. Maybe now you still have a say in it but if you think they will let you get a loan in the future without that scan you’re deluded. I’m off to to town to get a bank account with another bank. If you, like me, are banking with BNZ I suggest you do the same! Oh, and think me a tinfoil hatter buy I am covering my camera’s with a thick layer of Gaffer tape too!
