Surely everyone is aware by now of the magical “Google Goggles” service. It’s, in my opinion, simply amazing.
I decided to give it a try with some of the stuff I had at hand. My desktop computer’s logo, for example (picture attached).
The result I obtained was so jaw-dropping and mind-blowing that I repeated the experiment, and not once, but several times, always with the same outcome: Goggles was not able (willing?) to identify the famous logo.
I wonder: what’s going on here?
For the record: I’m running it on an Android device (HTC Desire).
Update: I’ve repeated the experiment with a different apple: the one illustrating the “Getting Started Guide” of “AppleCare Protection Plan”, and results are even more surprising:
It’s been able to find almost exactly identical images, but it just can’t tell what it is!
