re: Skype App Detects Liars
just think of the new apps that are possible.

Looks like we can give a whole new meaning to the term "mood ring."

re: Skype App Detects Liars
I presume the app has all sorts of disclaimers on it, like "this application is not to be used for anything but entertainment purposes, no warranty of accuracy, only with the knowledge of all parties, etc etc", otherwise I expect Lawyers are gonna have a field day on this one.

re: Skype App Detects Liars
I gotta admit, compared to many of the other dull Skype plug-in apps this lie detector thing is at least interesting and fun.

re: Skype App Detects Liars
If I'm monitoring the voice of someone calling me, should I be obligated to tell the person in advance? Isn't that the rule for RECORDING someone's voice over the phone? Is this any different?

re: Skype App Detects Liars
Once again LR demonstrates their journalistic prowess and their seeming desire to create ads under the guise of articles. A quick google of "voice stress lie detector" reveals these top hits:

As well as free software and other gadgets making various unsubstantiable claims.

"Well I can't really speak to their software, because it isnG«÷t something we own or that we've released; it's owned by this third party,"

I bet the meter would go through the roof on that stack of lies.

As they say - if you can't make something good - make it stupid.....

goofy heebs....

Thanks for the links, although I don't really see what your point is, or why you're so bitter. -M

"Thanks for the links, although I don't really see what your point is, or why you're so bitter. -M"

1. My point is that voice-stress detectors claiming to detect "lies" have been available for many years; attaching it to Skype is not new, nor newsworthy. And that these techniques have been discredited for years. And that they are (to quote one of the references) "patently illegal in certain jurisdictions" when used without informed consent.

2. I'm not bitter. I merely pointed out what has been pointed out many times before: LR is not a hotbed of journalistic integrity. Facts (see #1) which would belong in any half-competent article were completely absent - and the opposite was implied - in LR's "article". This Skype App most emphatically does not "Detect Liars" as your headline claimed.

Why would you try to defend the indefensible?
