HP Cameras With Built-in ‘Slimming’ Feature

This is just sick. HP’s digital cameras offer a built-in “slimming” feature that squishes the image to make women look slimmer. Their examples show two perfectly healthy-looking women in no need of “slimming” — to my eyes they both look better in the original untouched photos. Why not use HP’s CEO Mark Hurd as a model?
