Anyway, I don't know how this data collecting activity can be stopped. I think it's a sign of the times to come. I guess in the future a private moment will just become a thing of the past...

C'mon - let's not be intellectually lazy here; it is the principle of the matter. Assume it were 1983, and internet capabilities were just as they are now: If it were discovered that the Soviets were using this technology to spy on their public, you can bet that the outcry from American political institutions would be severe; "This is why we enjoy freedom in America - freedom from government surveillance; something that defines our way of life, and seperates us completely from the ideology and practice of the USSR." After the fall of the Soviet Union, no one seems to care that the United States and her corporations are adopting strategies akin to something we would have expected from the Soviets.
Mass public amnesia and indifference - it must be something in the water.
