These days there is a big deal being made on a lot of breaches in security.
From the NSA and Eric Snowden, to Google Glass, to the NYPD storing data, it's becoming an issue to a lot of people.
But I say: WHO ARE YOU KIDDING?!
On a daily basis, you use tools that are provided to you by companies, which can be used in much deeper ways than we can imagine.
Sure, Google Glass is an issue to some, since now you never know when someone may take a picture of you doing stupid.
But remember last week, when you picked your nose on the street corner, thinking no one saw?
Hate to break it to you, but 3 security cameras in store doorways, and one dashboard camera, all saw it, recorded it, and there is nothing you will ever be able to do about that!
Or what about the fact that on Google Maps we can now zoom in so close that we can see people sunbathing in their backyards on satellite view.
And if that is what they are letting us see...imagine what the satellites can really see!
What's that? You also ordered the "Spy Case" that came with cereal boxes as a kid? You know the one I mean, the one with a device to let you pick up sounds across the room.
Well just imagine what spending more than $3.99 on S/H can get you? What if you spent $399 on it? Chances are you can probably hear the sounds of hearts breaking all around the world as Adam Levine announced he was engaged.
Whilst anonymity on these blogs has been a hot topic on this blog and others in the past...just realize that Google knows who you are :) Sure you made a pseudonym to start this account...but you signed into it on the exact same computer that you signed into your real account...and you've done that 629 times before, all within a minute of each other. Odds are, you are the same person.
In this day and age, nothing is private anymore, at least not for long.
Just ask two guys named Spitzer, and appropriately, Wiener.
