Being the news junkie I am, I saw a clip of this on some channel.

I was IMMEDIATELY struck by the lack of masks — since this was within 24-hours of Trump touting masks.

What amazed me was that the news channel (I was watching (which was probably CNN or MSNBC)) did NOT point out the absence of masks.

Check it out.

This is so CRAZY.

Google Pixel 4 ‘Face Recognition’ Not Much Good With Face Masks; Pixel 5, LUCKILY, Will Go Back To Fingerprint.

From: ‘gizchina.com’. Google ‘Pixel 5’ for more.

It is both funny & frustrating trying to CONFIRM my identity to my phone when I am wearing a face mask!

The timing could NOT have been worse for Google. Even they would not have been able to predict that face masks would be in vogue in mid-2020.

Yes, most of the time I can keep my Google 4 ‘unlocked’ due to its proximity to my TRUSTED Garmin Fenix 6 smartwatches.

The problem arises when I try to use ‘SMART PAY’. And ironically that is also related to the COVID-19 pandemic. I would rather not touch credit card readers.

But, the phone, for good reason, needs you to verify that it is indeed you trying to use ‘Smart Pay’. Therein lies the problem.

I have NOT been a fan of ‘face recognition’. It works BUT it always seems finicky. Touch-and-go. I much preferred the fingerprint reader. I will HAVE to get a Pixel 5 just for that. SMILE. Well, I will keep you posted.
