Colonel Sanders' Face Blurred By Google Street View on All KFCs

It seems Google Street View's facial recognition technology may actually work better than we thought.

Apparently, the iconic face of Colonel Sanders has been blurred on every Kentucky Fried Chicken location. This gives Google some much-needed ammunition in the fight against those who believe the service invades individuals' privacy. Complaints directed toward Street View technology have been passionate, so we're sure a high profile success story like this sits well with top Google brass.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Google says it's choosing to blur Sanders' face because he is 'a real person'. Sanders, of course, died in December 1980. We're happy to see that Google is taking the privacy of individuals seriously, but there is still room for improvement. Privacy advocates contend that some individuals are still recognizable. Well, now Google can simply point to Colonel's face and say, "See...it works!" [From: Daily Telegraph]
