The Thought Police Are Coming
The Thought Police Have Arrived.
Ever ask yourself, "I wonder what they would think if they knew what books and videos I checked out in a year at the local library?" You might not be too happy to know what they know about you. When you use your Twitter account to share articles you have either read or written you are giving away a piece of your mind virtually.
It's really no secret that your Google searches, although deletable from your own Google Dashboard, are probably uploaded into a mass database of mega sized mass storage systems running the latest versions of anti-spyware so that even Mensa and MIT students can't gain access to the hard drives. The thought police probably know at least some of your habits.
They know what you buy at the grocery store. They know if you like a certain politician. Based on what television channels you watch at what time. They might even see into your mind's state using special devices to read your alpha theta and beta brain waves while you set at the television set vegetating to Victoria Secret Winter Fashion show. Yea right! This is a stretch!
Records of how often you phone your brother, sister or that guy down the street, what's his name. You have a wireless phone do you not? Then the Thought Police likely can track you based on the signal the G.P.S. or RFID chip in your phone sends out on a special radio frequency.
The above was written as a fiction. Now how about the reality. I think the reality may be more scary because it is in fact so real.
When You think about it, it's kind of funny to see ads that appear on a writing site when you are composing your articles and they are about things you took a look at on Amazon and put on your Wish List. Funny that these ads follow you around at different sites. Its as if you are being followed around by a persistent and annoying salesperson who gets you in a store and once you show an interest in a certain program they can't seem to leave you alone. They continue to tell you of all the good things about that product to the point of nausea.
Imagine watching television from a smart T.V. and start seeing ads that are completely related to your recent online buying or browsing habits. Imagine going to the store to buy a case of Shiner Bock, and going home to watch the ball game and they pop up an ad during a commercial break that says, "Hello Anthony, How Bout them Cowboys? Why not buy a case of Shiner Bock to share with friends at the next game between the Cowboys and the Giants. We think you will like the 2 for 1 special we have for you that will only last until tomorrow afternoon at 4 PM. So go get that beer Anthony and drink up. It's buy one, get one free."
If you wanted to opt out of personalized ads your wife would still know what you were up to. So better not buy beer or wine or cigarettes or cigars, etc. Then the ads will start rolling in the next time you turn on your smart, I mean dumb ass T.V.
