MORE D.L.: A lifelong goal is inching away.
The story also reported there’s a new search engine that enables people to browse through Internet-connected devices. As examples, it displayed surreptitious shots of a woman cleaning her living room and some people drinking at a bar in Hungary. Television programming may not be all that great these days, but it’s still got to be more interesting than watching people at a bar in Hungary.
A link in the story mentioned something about Barbie dolls being hacked, but when I clicked on it, nothing came up. Which leads me to believe that someone at the CIA didn't want me to have that information. So I'm not sure if Barbie can't be hacked, but I'm going to be careful what I say around her, just in case.
It’s not quite clear to me if my appliances and other devices are transmitting my image, my conversations or both. But the bigger question is, who’s watching or listening?
EVEN MORE D.L.: Sex or smartphones? You make the call.
According to the latest estimates I could find, there are 114.2 million television sets alone in this country. Does that means there are 114.2 million people in a building somewhere watching other people watching television? And, if so, how do they all find parking spaces when they get to work?
Scoff and snicker if you will. But if the FBI comes pounding on your door because of something your microwave saw or overheard, don't say you weren't warned.
So maybe it’s time to take Kellyanne seriously.
