Asian camera doesn’t understand Asian eyes

Joz got her mother a new camera. It seems to have just enough intelligence to say the wrong thing.

I feel sorry for manufacturers. First they had to teach their gadgets how to think—now they have to teach them tact.

    No, clearly that camera in comment #4 that focuses on breasts is the raciest camera. ; )

    I like any other race.

    People are joking that the camera is racist. It’s just silliness! Stop being so serious! No one is attacking anyone. Except you. Homeschool

  13. its an nice blog useful info in it.NASA may want to inspire the kids to grow up and be astronauts and engineers, but those kids aren’t paying the taxes that fund the rovers – something NASA tends to conveniently forget when they name probes these days.

    I have a camera that is supposed to be able to recognize faces and adjust the light on them. But if a woman is in the picture, it focuses on her breasts. Including my 14 year old niece. perverted camera.

    This comment on teh flickr page is amazing:

    “Come on! You can’t all be serious! The “f”ing camera is calibrated to 85% of the populations eyes. It’s not raciest. Get over it! And the rest of you. You really gotta think about what you do to each and every company you attack with B.S like this. We all just have to get over ourselves! NONE of us are that special! Before you point fingers remember. You don’t deserve it!, you probably are the only one offended, and the rest of the world is NOT there to make sure that YOU.. are ok with everything. I am not speaking to this one Asian person. I am speaking to all of you that think this was wrong… LIBERALS!”

    Hey, Moderators – starting at about #13, every comment has a spam link attached to it.

    Wow Felix. Really?

    I think this is funny. I like Asians, as much as I like any other race.

    People are joking that the camera is racist. It’s just silliness! Stop being so serious! No one is attacking anyone. Except you.

    And for the record, I think we are ALL special. I am a liberal and proud of it.

    “Liberalism is a broad class of political philosophies that considers individual liberty and equality to be the most important political goals.”

    Sounds good to me! :)

    Hey Felix – umm…you do realize that Asians make up a majority of the planet’s population, right? I agree it’s a silly thing to get upset about, as it was obviously not intentional. You seem to have some anger issues you might want to speak to someone about. Also, what does any of this have to do with “LIBERALS” ?

    My camera gives me this all the time, even though I’m white, with a respectable epicanthic fold. I think it’s the perpetual Clint Eastwood squint.
