No longer content to listen to your every word, Big Brother… errr ummm… I mean Google and Nest, are watching you. Face Match uses facial recognition and some of the camera enabled gadgets to provide a value added set of features where it recognizes you. I can see this now… the middle of the night, and you’re trying to keep the house asleep while you go to get Tums… and Google greets you loudly, asks what you’re doing up late, offers an ad for Prilosec OTC, followed by an offer to order it at a special price… waking the household.

It’s no longer just always-listening microphones — Google’s new Nest Hub Max smart display adds a camera that’s always scanning for faces.
