Mobile Google Android to condition people to embrace constant GPS tracking


ignoranceisfutile.w ordpress.com

The fact is that virtually every modern cell phone has GPS tracking technologies built-in. Odds are that the masses in general have very little concept of this. This being the case, then it’s a good thing the Federal government ‘has’ Google ‘working in their interests’ in that before most people even have clear understanding that their movements being tracked, they may become acclimated to the embracing and desire of such. But this Google Android isn’t even meant for merely just cell phones, it’s meant for virtually any and all palm-sized mobile devices (even MP3 players), set-top boxes for TV’s, and vehicles.

In the article I lay out the 20 1st generation mobile applets that virtually all of encourage tracking. One even has you checking your location while cooking dinner.

I didn't know where else to post this. I looked thru the "Board" page but nothing seemed more appropriate.

Google Android is about to launch sometime during the next week or so.

most phones do have a tracking application that's supposed to be for "security" reasons in case or emergencies, but you can turn them off.

as for the whole GPS tracking, sure gps is good for finding places, but to have it on at all times so others can track you, you might as well OK to be chipped.

and as for android. screw it. skyfire looks way more promising...

just my opinions.

Does it endorse built-in GPS tracking?

I'm maintly a staunch critic of Google's activities for their deep government integration and aritificial intelligence ambitions.

Yeah, it would probably be a good idea for the paranoid folk out there to read up more on how and when GPS tracking is applicable.

Nah. It's a non-issue.

Actually unless they have changed in the last 4 years the triangulation on cell phones is accomplished by the cell sites, not gps. The phone is constantly talking to several sites at once and the speed of arrival of the signal with a time stamp from the phone is all you need to pin point where you are. (I was a cellular engineer for 8 years)

Of course that'll be GREAT for the implants!



FIRST…


Revelation 13 v16-18 (King James Version)


And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666.




THEN…


Say A=6, then add 6 for each successive letter of the alphabet.

A=6 / B=12 / C=18 / D=24 / E=30 / F=36 / G=42 / H=48 / I=54 / J=60 / K=66 / L=72 / M=78 / N=84 / O=90 / P=96 / Q=102 / R=108 / S=114 / T=120 / U=126 / V=132 / W=138 / X=144 / Y=150 / Z=156

Then, add up the numbers that correspond to the letters in the word "computer"

C = 18
O = 90
M = 78
P = 96
U = 126
T = 120
E = 30
R = 108
-------------
??????? as in “computer” chip ?? (RFID)??




AND FINALLY…

Excerpts from IMAGE of: New York Times.com article:

INTERNAL G.P.S. First, tracking devices were installed in cars so they could be found if stolen. Then, pet owners began putting chips in their dogs and cats. Now it’s human beings who are being “chipped.” An epidemic of kidnappings has led wealthy and even middle-class Mexicans to pay $4,000 to have tiny transmitters implanted that can pinpoint their location by satellite.

Chipping people has already begun in the United States, where VeriChip has inserted chips in 200 Alzheimer’s patients for a pilot program. Future Big Brother applications are not hard to imagine, like chipping prisoners, the mentally ill and teenagers who lie about where they’re really spending Friday night.


CHILLING, NO???

How the Chip will Come


Lost of folks want to envision a future where there is great unrest and suddenly the chipping of Americans will begin with great fear and oppression.

Well no, actually it will happen differently than that:

First, there will be a reason to get it. Celebs and powerful people will become the "It" crowd due to the conveniences and generally awesome results of their being chipped. TV will have lots of coverage in this regard, showing how easy it is for these beautiful people to just walk out the door of a clothing shop and have their items automatically paid for, how they never have to think about credit cards or cash because they've "joined with the future".

Yes, this will come upon us slowly and with great fanfare. It will be "The Solution" to identity theft and other financial woes.

Soon, regular folks will get chipped and its like overnight they become cool, just like Oprah or Tim Robbins or whatever famous anus is leading the "chip charge" on America. It will become the new coolness and the way to escape from living in rags and hiding.

So then those who have accepted the chip, will be polarized of course, and then those who do not accept, will similarly polarize, then group A sees group B as a threat. Now, who do you think will have the power at that point?


My advice is this: Prepare yourself for humility, poverty and opportunities to give what crust of bread you have, to the person next to you, who has none. This is all the result of the Worship of Mammon, and even confused yet brilliant souls like Ayn Rand, have brought us to this point.

The solution is not to adopt the love of gold, like John Galt would have you do. The goal should be to survive as Eddie Willers --who never got invited into Galt's Gulch, and got ditched by the big boys when the world of Atlas Shrugged ended.

What Would Eddie Do? This should be the question. Because once the worship of gold has failed you, and the "gods themselves" have deserted you, and the world is collapsing around you (as Ms Rand would have it do), then you must find truth IN YOUR HEART.

It was said that Ms. Rand originally wanted to have a religious character in her novel, but could not create such a person, so powerful was her atheistic conditioning from her childhood soviet indoctrination. This is sad. I think it's really funny to listen to Objectivists today who fail to see that the country she loved, is becoming very much like the country she hated.

Chipping in Russia might come about as an edict, but in the US, it will be the "cool" thing to do, and your neighbors, spouse, kids will yearn to get it, just so they can 'belong'. In the end, all you can do is be right within yourself, and have faith that your suffering is never in vain, and that the Creator sees you in your weakest moments.

This life is not all there is, and whereas Ms Rand and her friends might say "Only escapists and fools dream about an afterlife or a soul" ...But soon it will become a survival instinct to dream about the next world, just as the natives of America, australia and the arctic, have done for thousands of years. Your soul, is the handle on which to cling, when things get tough. Those who have sold their soul, will cling to whatever they got in trade for it.

Do not lose hope, for all that you need, is within you.
