I actually found my time in retail to help my maths quite a lot. I mean trying to figure out what things are with all the .99 and .95 etc etc can get confusing, however you get so used to seeing £3.45 + £7.99 that you already know how much it would cost them before it goes through. However, if you do it wrong and your till is down on cash at the end of the day, you can get accused of stealing and loose your job.

So perhaps she did know, but when your jobs on the line, that's when you really find out how much you trust your maths lol

The next thing they want is to get access to your thoughts and secrets located in your subconscious. They have people with abilities that can extract data from your dreams cos I was pulled out of my dream and I saw their dream hq. So yes they want full control of your body and life, once they have your secrets they will use you as their pets.

What people don't realize is that everyone participating in this up and coming new age of technology experiment will practically have their whole life documented, tracked and recorded indefinitely. There will be maps, logs and media of where you've been, what you did and who you did it with on a minute by minute basis. All this information could be stored on server farms anywhere on earth, or maybe even space, so you will never gain access to it.

Don't have anything to hide? Then you are the perfect candidate. In the not so distant future you might very well be the target of a malfunctioned or malicious entity. Be that entity a person, an advanced A.I., a corporation or a government. Even someone who's "just following orders." All the innocent stored information about your past can now be taken out of context and be used to incriminate, humiliate or blackmail you. This can affect everything from your home and family to your prospective future careers.

Not such a rosy picture now. But its fine because nothing on the internet is true anyway


You forgot identity theft. If everyone has profiles and some are +/- to different rating systems, agencies, government authority, suddenly clean/established profiles become a commodity. Then your profile is switched with a ________, who is running around pretending to be you, and meanwhile you are detained on black site island.

I am pretty sure there are a few dystopian thrillers based on this premise.

This is awesome. As long as you are able to take it off, I'm not sure why anyone would be against it. Almost every technology is able to track people now, if you don't like it just only keep it around you when you're using it.

Now that Google Glass technology is creepy in my opinion, but this is just a good upgrade of a watch.

Don't they already track and tracer people on cell phones with an abundance of information on data . or perhaps some people forget that usually technology gets smaller and smaller , except television sets .

Maybe some just fear technology and progression

YOU CAN'T TAKE THEM OFF??? NOOOOO! err...Wait

I have a love-hate relationship with my tech gear as well. But for me, it's not about turning the device itself off or taking it off my person. What I hate is that my usage data gets logged then has the hell mined out of it. That, in many ways, can't be turned off.

I grew up in a time when privacy was a right and was respected.


Privacy has been considered sacred to individuals since the beginning of time, and still is.
In the same way, people in positions of influence have always attempted to gain access to the “private” information of the people in order to advance their power and/or agenda.
This is not scary and it is not new, it is simply the way things are. People have the right to keep their information private, or ‘share’ their life with everyone online.
If you are scared your telephone company is doing bad things with your life story, then stop sharing your life story, stop carrying a tracking device in your pocket, and start communicating as people did 100 years ago.
What people do, on a daily basis, has been observed and monitored since the start of time – by other people on the streets and in your communities. People these days seem to think they are entitled to escape from reality and keep everything they do a secret. If you aren't doing anything bad, then who gives a $@*# if your preferences and habits are being stored along with trillions or more of others’ preferences. And if you are doing something bad, then do it in private – meaning turn of your wifi, turn of your electronics, and do what you do.
The world is evolving and changing, it’s not something to be scared of, it’s something to get involved with and influence positively… Fear mongering is not that.

Look further than the coolness folks, this is a device that will basically enslave society and yet I just know that people are going to go willingly to sign up to be monitored through every aspect of their lives. It's horrifying to me. Servitude of the masses by their own choice? What have we become and how did we get to this point? We are willingly walking into a prison state without the walls.


Exactly why the sheep metaphor is so true.

Oh how we will panic if in the future, electricity fails us.

If? Try when. I mean, I cant imagine a more effective act of terror(one I surely hope never comes, but that I cant refrainfrom thinking that it will).I really hope I'm wrong, though.

But what about those devices that need an internet connection to even function? Or software/apps that require a facebook login to work? Its coming to a point where if you want to operate your toaster, you'll first need to link your twitter account before you can eat.

Then there are RFID chips that can be implanted under the skin. Then unless you're Quaid and have one of that neat little tools that burrows in through your nose to get the chip out out of your brain, you're screwed.

They just figured it would be a lot easier to get people to voluntarily wear "trackers" than it would be to force RFID or ankle bracelets on everyone.

kind of like a cool version of a 'tag' as ordered by courts for convicted criminals to wear.

Of course it's not going to bloody warn you correctly if there are jelly fish in the sea. We will be hearing from dummies that get upset when their new smart watch didn't tell them about the jelly fish they swam into.

And the people will wait in line to actually pay for their new prisoner bracelets.

I just can't understand how we got to the place and time when people have become so damn stupid so as not to see this.

Peace

Implant RFID is for identification, not tracking. You can't track them at all.

I imagine, knowing our "Elected" lords & ladies that this is just an interimn step before they start tattooing everyone with a liquid metal transmitter that you CAN'T turn off, or it KILLS you. And it's from "Google"! Is there anything about Google that DOESN'T SUCK? I mean besides Zuckerboob? I can understand why this appeals to the "young people". I get they're the tech savvy, with it, generation, products of information age education. They sure know a lot about social networking and the web.
And why bother learning all that history crap, it's not like something or someone like that could ever happen here.
I guess they're smart phones and tablets and google glasses will keep them occupied while they're waiting they're turn to take that "quick" shower in the DHS camps that the government took them too because the "Special Steam" in the shower will protect them from a "Non-Specific" terrorist threat! National Socialism. Yes. The government has an "app" for that. It's called the "Dept of Education" !
