The odds we'll ever be at one of those six spots are low (a strip club and photography studio among them), and the incentives for a check-in are not nearly enticing enough for us to take the time.

So if one walks into a strip club, this app will recognize you and remember that you prefer medium-tall brunettes over fake-breasted blondes, and send appropriate dancers your way?

Intriguing ...

These cameras recognize your face when you pass by, then check you in at the location. Simultaneously, your smartphone notifies you of a customized deal based on your Like history.

That's ridiculous and can't possibly work.  The liquor store doesn't sell transsexual midgets OR donkeys!

So those of us not whoring our image out to Facebook should probably expect to be able to walk out of stores without paying, then? Or do we pay the "Luddite Tax" or something like that?

I hate Facebook, even though I owe it for reuniting me with my high school sweetheart and leading to my utter happiness. I still quit FB after we found each other, and I really don't like the idea of being pressured into going back to it. Honestly, I'm sick of every app, website, store, and promotion insisting I join Facebook and link my account. If you make Facebook a requirement, I'm dumping you and finding an alternative.

That's why Spotify can suck my dick.

Remember kiddies, if you are paying for it, you are the product, not a customer.

I refuse to believe there are any other creatures existant in strip clubs who are not either giant plastic surgery freakshows, or men without dicks. I have never seen a medium height brunette who was well but naturally endowed.

These people will go to great lengths to whore themselves out just to save fifty cents on a triple mocha whip espresso yet get super offended if you even suggest facial recognition at a place like an airport because 'teh govment is ebil!!'. Fark them, they deserve to be serfs and treated disparagingly.

This makes me want to Join FB. As 'Mr. Galactic, 1st Commander of the Space Brigade' or some other nonsense. I'm talking method acting here, never breaking character. How cool would it be to be greeted as some crazy pen name, and have the store offer up products based on my extensive purchase history of Asian lesbian pron and other crazy items. I could have my own personal entourage as soon as I enter the store. I'm liking this!

I might get a smartphone in the future... if I can see the usefulness outweighing the increase in work I'm sure it will bring

"well... I understand you're at dinner, but can't you just check the device from your phone quick? It will only take 5 minutes.. hang on I'm going to conference you in with our blahblahblah"

but facebook? Fark and email is the closest I get to social networking. You guys have fun with your tweetbooks and facespaces.

Right there with ya man. I think my phone is powered off more than it is powered on.

Broke up with a girl a couple months ago. Was for many reasons, and this is way down the list.... but I could not stand her texting me five thousand farking times a day and then wondering why I wasn't replying 24/7. It got to the point I think my blood pressure ticked up a point every time I heard a text come in.

I'd say that's what I get for dating a chick younger than me but I see it in 30somethings just as much as 20somethings.

Believe me, you are not alone.

And nothing irks me more than to be in a face-to-face conversation with somebody who takes a phone call right in the middle of our conversation.

Oddly enough, I'm just the reverse.   I got rid of my landline and only have the cell because I can turn the cell on only when I want to make a call and then turn it back off when I'm done, so that I cannot be pestered by phone.

I"m getting rid of it all and moving onto to the local farm co-op. Screw this.
