My friend emailed this to me, and I thought it was a brilliant insight:

Quote:

What an idea from a man at the DMV. We got to talking with him about how everyone was on their phones. One thing lead to another and this Pokemon Go thing came up. He hates it, like us, but had very good insight to why it's here. And it makes total sense.


With all cell phones connected to satellites and GPS tracks with satellites ... GPS can only go so far with google car. So, create a game which everyone will flock to and use their phone to map the area for us. As they try to catch the monster they are taking pictures and don't know it. (They flip the screen with a finger multiple times to catch. The more you catch the more free food you get at restaurants in convenience stores)

It's the perfect way to get in the homes and private yards. People wander everywhere without paying attention to where they are. One kid fell off a cliff here.

All cell phones cameras are always on...with everyone plugged in to the same network... ALL pictures will be logged and mapped. Now "they" have maps of EVERYTHING. And we did it to ourselves.


Wow never thought of this but makes so much sense.

Default Not good.

Wow. If that's true, that's brilliant. Evil, but brilliant.

Technology today is wayyyy to smart already if you ask me. My Google driving ap tells me in the morning how many minutes it is to work -- without me asking. Right about 4:00, it tells me how many minutes to get home -- again without request. I was kidding my husband that the ap is quite the slave driver telling me when to go to work and come home, and he said that ALL the satellites that are used for GPS are government-owned. Uncle Sam has my whereabouts and schedule on a lock. Scary thought.

Yeah, but google is a stupid speller. It's a good thing I use it very sparingly and only with folks who know me well. Because when voice activated it says things I never said and makes atrocious grammatical and punctuation errors.

It seemed relatively harmless. BUT.

I was looking for something to watch on TV (a less and less productive effort) and came across the Walking Dead series and thought how bizarre it will be when they create the same sort of "game" with Zombies.

And how very, very horrible.

I think the timing of this technology is beyond coincidence. My heart is heavy.
