Well that big electronics show wrapping up in law's -- S and a push to make these all Internet.
Has a lot of critics already saying that this show is about all intrusive.
Look at this work -- -- -- contracts how quickly -- eating and and it vibrates when you should slow down visas is an item that I will not be buying.
Then there's this toothbrush that monitors your brushing habits and stores the info on the web.
Privacy advocate at Katrina -- says these gadgets are gonna cost you your pride is it big time.
-- -- job bidding bastard thinks that critics are being a bit paranoid severe that you so.
Are overreacting want.
Look I think at this point in time we don't have phones we have from these cable boxes ordering movies hotel room -- People already know a bunch of stuff about us even without us going into the home -- surrender that as a given.
Well -- I I learn from history right -- so the fact that is already happened means that when I do choose to devices that are going my home.
I know what to guard for and getting more Smart about the things that could happen and ensuring that that appliances that I choose have those.
Security measures built in and I now they're not doing something that you don't know.
Here's the thing life's full and that they can always do something that that they don't know we're the only -- its governance and effective discover your toasters and watch it.
Yeah well I think.
I've been a look I think he does -- I consider acting and helpless and -- The look look I think I think the only antidote against that is.
Going into the mountains and having a cabin where help someone still could be looking right into you right and into your window I think at the end of the day not -- -- -- agreed and well to an extent he's right this is the way that things are going unfortunately.
Right now meal we do have an option to choose the toaster that monitors us are not unfortunately in the future there will be an option but let's recap really.
They say they won't be enough to know what's it supposed to be sold -- us.
And we're not told that as a teacher that it can monitor us.
Well that currently the only Tulsa that's -- -- yeah about it this is more important -- because right now the government is listening to our phone calls.
Reading our emails -- in our diets and looking out our health records and -- in -- -- I have I want.
All of that in their heart and went back and shot that in our yes but but that but that's something that -- -- you know really pretty much -- -- -- that you.
You would choose to get I mean so where do you draw the line Katrina between stuff that could be useful.
-- -- you.
And and those that you have want no part of that's your choice.
While it is our choice like I said right now but now -- everything it's being switched over from the analog aides to the digital age.
It's not going to be a choice and that's what Americans need to understand when they do purchased these products because this is not just.
From your Smartphone to your other -- which I don't even know why you want to communicate with their other end.
This is two way wireless technology which means the government can also access the appliances in your home.
So that if you're watching your dishes at a time that's not optimal for water usage guess what.
Off yeah but you know you're you're selling the talking up and sort of remind many times and say you really -- (%expletive) me off funds to do that our own.
-- -- -- where we don't with this I mean it was.
Scott and -- -- Sun Microsystems.
Is that if you value your privacy just get over it you know pretty much are you gonna save the outs -- that.
Part of the compromise in the the swap went with with ease of life and all that is surrendering some privacy.
In -- there's -- very with -- anything and I think privacy is becoming one.
Where technologies involved I think look I think what Katrina saying.
Makes a lot of sense you gotta be vigilant you gotta be proactive don't be stupid about the kinds of things with medicine things you could trust the purveyor of that product.
Not to be doing things that he's not supposed to be that's fair but you know what would you sell.
Third party information to another party -- -- -- -- -- an efficient market right I think as you move many pain points as there are that you feel old but by using an appliance there will be.
An antidote for that for instance -- saw started doing some funky stuff.
On the PC allowed back he had did you know a ton of industry groups.
Like -- Katrina step up and say hey stop.
Reporting to you when we do certain actions on the machine and you know what they responded and then you had people like I never believe they honored that.
You know it or not resolved overnight and say we can we -- you every morning.
Today and I say without and I think it's a monitor right you know what -- did to a certain extent.
They could but I think at the end of the day you have these checks and balances and it's a marvel you argued checks and balances -- I think they've I think that we're aware of them and about half the battle really -- seem -- -- -- -- Now note now that the checks and balances clearly don't work on -- yeah -- -- -- except new privacy agreements because.
The most basic example FaceBook.
We just had a couple weeks ago the -- -- privacy issue that just popped up out of nowhere that most people were even aware about.
They hit the -- -- the American people want to understand accident happened -- this is stuck that we know about.
But at the end of the day -- these appliances might be helpful and Smart and cool and -- They will also be able to tell the authorities if you were truly indeed at home in bed asleep.
At the time of the murder.
They that that about the go to -- that would I think I think that had.
I do I think -- news -- murder -- -- you know allowing India but I look I think I think with anything in this society technology included we have weapons that we have to use.
Sort of selective application -- we have -- what we do have a way not that we would deliberately -- to start with let's say something -- did happen -- -- have to studio.
Obviously we could correlate a series of pictures of you walking down sixth avenue of it and put it to get he was here -- this that you're doing this that he gets stimulus.
This weekend at some of all that data will these cameras that we're tracking him -- he went through bank machine.
Whatever and then then use that information that was blindly assimilated problem list and then put it together.
And and -- almost indict you.
Yes and then and then we have our constitutional it says that that's not admissible so I think I think that.
You know you always have an optional -- scrap the bill of rights -- right it's an earlier level respect.
Well -- DO so that that's the bigger issue than this particular debate I think.
If we don't trust the institutions to use the technology in the data correctly then we're host -- or any other boroughs are ready.
A well we are I mean that our congress has set like I said they're already monetary and our emails are healthcare records are eating habits.
Our phone company this is already happening from the Bush Administration -- starting in the Patriot Act of the Indy AA.
People have got to rise up and say no we half to drawl.
The -- -- one of the support sending arrested.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Great I was hoping what have you would be really really fat to talk about the -- -- unfortunately my head did not and being produced but thank you both regardless -- -- --
