Technology is getting scary

I have just been in Berlin, meeting with some very clever people who have come up with a cunning type of retail offer that is so clever that I can’t tell you about it.  Let’s just say that in the future, the stuff you buy will be able to tell you where it’s come from, and (if it’s second hand) all about its previous owners.

You knew about this already – right?  Does it not scare you?

But equally scary is the way that TV technology is going.  Soon, there may be no point in going anywhere, as anywhere can be represented wherever you are.  For an amusing take on this.  See this new advert from LG.

Are you scared yet?  Or just amused?
