A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Lies... ok, maybe just 8... (CES - Olympus VR-340)

Ok, this is getting a bit out of hand, but I guess it was inevitable.  Why bother with Photoshop when your camera can do most of the work?  There are already cameras that make your eyes bigger... give you a tan... why not an instant face-lift?
The Olympus VR-340
The Olympus VR-340 looks like your average 16mp point and shoot, but hidden in the menus is a "Beauty" mode which allows  you to do spot 'enhancements' like whiten teeth, eye shadow add/remove, and a few more 'fixes'.

With all the negative issues with retouching photos... I don't think this is exactly a step in the right direction... why bother being in the photos if it's not going to look like you at all?  Oh well... C'est LIE vie.
