    Just want to raise some issues on iphoto 09 and confidentiality

    - faces now means that one cannot be in a crowd and hope to pass un-noticed. If someone knows you, has you as a "face" in iphoto, most probably you will be recognized in a crowd. So our general public life is now more "noticed"

    - places means that if you have gps enabled phone, you may no longer be able to say you are somewhere, as the GPS will quite precisely put you in the correct location on the map.

    So if these features are positive in some ways, they can actually compromise your privacy. For example, there is not way to tell iPhone not to geo-tag a photo.

    my 2 cents worth

    Rest your your location warnings and turn off location services. Should stop photos from being tagged.
