Recently the tracking abilities of cell phones have been mentioned on the MSM. As with most news these days, it feels more like a conditioning report
as no serious questions are ever raised and often they run a nice story that helps dissolve the issues of trust and personal privacy. Case point:
Many of the viewers to this website have known that these phones are far from private. GPS ability has been required within cells since 2002. Your
mic can be operated remotely, deleted texts can be recovered, etc. Yet we continue to use these phones for their convenience despite the risks
whether they be medical concerns, privacy or reduced awareness.
So what does the future look like for us and our phones? To begin with, the Obama administration is looking into creating an internet ID for the
So begins our journey into the possible uses of these nefarious devices. Once your ID goes digital within an established grid, you can throw all
hopes of privacy and real freedom out the window.
Rather than start each sentence with "I see, or one possibility," I will state my ideas as if the grid is already in place and the technology is at
Let's begin. The old days of not having password protection in the form of a numerical code, drawing a pattern over dots, etc, are over. Now your
phone requires a bio imprint to begin functions. This will beyond a fingerprint scan. It may even involve face recognition. Regardless, your
identity will be confirmed each time you use the device whether it be a key for online activity or making a call.
You cell phone has also become your car key. I would have expected vehicles to have evolved with more computer interactive devices for the user than
they currently offer, however the steps needed for this are not far off. Great, now you don't have to worry about your car being stolen. Let's go
for a ride.
Tolls are automatically deducted from your bank account as you pass electronic pass points. Those video cameras you see popping up at traffic
intersections will serve a purpose. If you run a red light, a video of the incident will be sent for your confirmation and the fee has already been
taken care of as well. Cars at this time have incident recorders along with on board camera systems. Initially I thought the DMV would become a
thing of the past as they could update plate registration electronically but they will probably merge with the TSA to further torment their visitors.
Enough of the driving, let's grab a coffee. That starbucks already knows your order without talking with someone. Any alterations to your order are
modified through your cell phone as your proceed up the lane. On you go, no cash was used because at this point though, you will not be allowed to
use money as you have known it. Digital credits and debits are the currency at this time. When you buy groceries, not only is every item recorded,
your phone has replaced your checkbook or debit card. Your purchases and income are now stored electronically so that means your taxes are already
done, granted you don't keep accumulating icop speeding tickets.
Ready for a walk? As you pass nearby businesses, electronic ads begin popping up on your cell without your prompting. Some are quite entertaining so
you go in to take a look. All stores have their own ID gates for protection from shoplifters and to further know their customer base. Hey you have
friends on friendface, perhaps they would like to know you like shopping at best buy. On it goes.
Feeling like you want a way out? Go for it. Deviations from your normal routines will draw the attention of computer algorithms and authorities who
are no longer writing speeding tickets will be there assist you. They will have the ability to review your recorded activities from their ipads
(whether they be online or along the grids) while they are interrogating you.
Still feel like running? A digital ID block or alert status will be issued and you will no longer be able to function normally within the grid areas.
We are not too far away from such an electronic nightmare.
