I usually back any new technology; not this one. Although there are more far-reaching applications for facial recognition on everyone's phone, the first thing to come to my mind was, "Huh? The creepy guy shadowing me at the library could covertly snap a pic, run me, and show up at my front door." I'd prefer to leave him in the library, thanks.
All sort of negative implications from this one. Betcha' it's an app soon.

Eileen N (above) -- no kidding. I personally LIKE anonymity for just this reason.
