CNET News reporter Ina Fried recently played around with the Faces feature--designed to recognize who's who--in the latest version of iPhoto, which came out just a few weeks ago.

The face recognition feature had plenty of matches, but it also thought USA softball pitching ace Cat Osterman was our family friend Ray.

This is Brandon, our friend's 3-year-old, as correctly recognized by iPhoto.

This is not Brandon, our friend's 3-year-old, but rather a software company co-founder. Oh, what is his name? To be fair, the picture is a bit fuzzy.

The software recognized a face out of the snow woman that I built in Tahoe earlier this month and let us tag it--Snowmanda.

After tagging the first photo, it even recognized Snowmanda in future pictures.

And, this is my personal favorite. iPhoto thought this image might actually be of my friend Rachel. Sorry, Rachel.
