    *shiver*

    just what I've been waiting for, the possibility to RECOGNIZE every idiot that ever had their picture anywhere in the web....so i can use it against them! *HARHARHAR*

    So this is something I'm not happy about.

    (future) Employers are going to love it though.:grr:

    So now what, I go through life with a black bar over my eyes?

    Actually site owners should be able to block the spider from using the site. As a result anyone that is trying to hide copyrighted material would just do that. Also some sites might start doing that as an option on some pages to protect the identities of people in the images.

    I can only imagine the possible government uses for this software...

    The very nice CEO of Idée has pulled some strings and got me into the beta. Which is nice.

    We've also got twenty invites to give away to loyal bit-tech readers, so if you'd like an account check out this thread.
