It's funny that Americans are worried about Huawei, when their own government is spying on them since decades.

There's nothing worse than the feeling of foreign eyes on you.  My mate Tommy from Luton told me that.

Taken as individual examples, the internet of things may seem like an innocuous presence as it listens, monitors and watches. But taken as a whole there are serious implications.

Take this example of people hacking into someone else's smart phone enabled vibrating panties.

There really is no limit to the things we're willing to make available for others. 🤔

🤣 it's a Google Home. A listening device that can control your home if one has a "smart home", be your assistant and answer questions.  It works by recording commands by saying ok Google. But that's not entirely accurate. It records everything but doesn't respond if not recording ok Google.

It supposedly does not record everything: https://www.techworld.com/security/does-amazon-alexa-listen-to-my-conversations-3661967/

That being said, how are we to know there aren't software on our phones that record everything within mic radius? Or our laptops? Etc. 

We can't know for sure. Luckily for me, I don't really care any other way :lol:

Whether such devices record everything is open for questions. I know you don't really care.  You support mandatory blood / DNA testing. 😊

Hah, yes. 

But it's not like I want to be recorded, more that I consider the possibility of it, combined with my sort-of indifference to it, that I am not really worried. It falls in the "not likely and little damage" square.

It's easy to shrug off because yeah for now individually it's pretty inconsequential.

After 50years of shrugging? The future is dim. Imagine a boot stomping on a human face, forever.

P.S. I guarantee they gather our fingerprints from touchscreens.

Inscreen finger print scanners are the next in thing in terms of smartphones so you wouldn't be far off

Sadly we are probably one of if not the last generation of humanity who will know any semblance of autonomy, privacy and freedom.

My GF just brought me these from the US (they are nowhere to be seen here in Argentina). Can’t say I’m addicted to them :P 

I always ask for these when a friend is travelling to the US

How is the future dim? What exactly do you fear? How is your doomsday predictions any different from any other doomsday prediction from technofobs, conspiracy theorists, and super-pessimistic people who have been saying similar things for the last 100 year? 

The future isn't dim, it is you who have a dim view of the future. And I would like to know why. Don't get me wrong, climate change, over population and mass extinctions pose a serious threat to humanity, but I sense that for you it is more about wickedness, evil politicians, and hidden organizations that rule the world and try to control people. To me, that is a complete wrong focus. To me, that is taking focus away from what is a real threat.
