Google's 'Party Mode' may lead to hangovers of regret
It's a party! And parties are a good thing, right?
That's what the good folk at Google seem to think, and may be why they've built a feature into their new Google+ Events software called "Party Mode" that automatically uploads all photos taken at a party to the Internet.
On the face of it, it's a great idea. Everyone invited to a party through Google+ Events, or at least everyone with an Android phone and a Google+ account, can see all the smartphone photos being taken at the party, as they're being taken — and then all the photos can be collected in an online photo album for posterity. However, as the B-52s warned, parties tend to go out of bounds, and people tend to do things at 2 a.m. Sunday they'd rather not remember at 10 a.m. Monday.
