What a time to be alive...via The Seattle Times:

A few days after Microsoft released Windows 10 to the public last year, Teri Goldstein’s computer started trying to download and install the new operating system.

The update, which she says she didn’t authorize, failed. Instead, the computer she uses to run her Sausalito, Calif., travel-agency business slowed to a crawl. It would crash, she says, and be unusable for days at a time.

“I had never heard of Windows 10,” Goldstein said. “Nobody ever asked me if I wanted to update.”

When outreach to Microsoft’s customer support didn’t fix the issue, Goldstein took the software giant to court, seeking compensation for lost wages and the cost of a new computer.

Two months ago FindFace was launched in Russia. It matches photos you snap of strangers on the streets, or photos you may have stored in your gallary, to existing profile pictures on the largest European social networking site VK (originally VKontakte).


What's so insane about the face recognition algorithm is that it can correctly pair faces with a 70% reliability. FindFace was founded by 26-year-old Artem Kukharenko, and 29-year-old Alexander Kabakov, who claim the dating app currently has over 500,000 users and has processed over 3 million searches.
