    Is technology spinning out of control?

    Recently, the local news reported about how baby cams can be tapped into by the savvy tech.  This disturbs me greatly.  Is nothing sacred and private anymore?  Has technology gone too far and true privacy no longer exists?

    Technology is just simply changing on almost a daily basis.

    Technology hasn't gone too far, & in my eyes is totally neutral..Governments have gone too far, using technology for control of it's population..Nothing is sacred & every e-mail you send is scanned/read, also everything you ever post on Facebook etc is kept & logged..Even this comment will be read/scanned etc, big brother etc..NWO like George Orwell wrote about, & governments with too much power like Abraham Lincoln warned about all those years ago.

    Yes to your question but this was also applicable many years ago. In addition, those game systems that many parents spend their hard earned money on can also allow pedophiles, bullies, and others to tap into your kids' lives and see or communicate with them without the child or parents knowing! Don't forget cell phones, computers, tablets, and well, no true privacy no longer exists.
