"Remember when Radio Shack would ask for your phone number/email/whatever when you bought batteries?"
"We had a simple solution, don't shop at Radio Shack."
Except that it eventually becomes more and more difficult to avoid technologies like this. You can still get away with "Don't get a smartphone" mostly (for phone app based invasions). "Don't get a car" (for auto-updates and on-star type stuff) isn't really practical for most people living in the US. How long will you cling to an old car that doesn't have these "features"? Howsabout airport naked scanners? I travel for work, "Don't Fly" isn't an option for me.
Voting with your pocketbook is like trying to hold back the tide.
