What I want is a wearable computer that belongs to me. Not a device that I basically rent and that works for its maker more than me.

In other words, it's not bloody likely that I'll ever get one. Unless parts get cheap enough that building your own becomes an option.

The question today ain't so much whether you're paranoid, it's more whether you're paranoid enough.

I mean, think about it. Ponder that you told someone in 1999 that all our email traffic is monitored by the government, that they log and examine every bit you do on the internet, that they use your cell phone to track your every move and that they basically log, store, monitor and evaluate every kind of communication you do, be it via phone or internet, and that they track what you read, who you talk to, what you talk about and what information you access.

Personally, I'd have asked you whether you want to buy a new tinfoil hat, now with even better anti-government shielding.

Today, I'd ponder buying one.

Well, you have to admit, we have every right to.

Technology used to be what sets us free, what allows us to go where nobody went before, to soar and climb to new heights, to liberate ourselves and our dreams.

Today, technology is just a tool for oppression and control, to monitor and to invade our privacy. What we loved has turned into what we hate.

Isn't that enough to make someone cry?

Air pollution is really making us pay through the nose.
