Is Our Love of tech Exposing Us To Surveillance?

We all love our tech don’t we? But there is a darker side to it that is happening whether we like it or not and that is the role of this tech being used to keep an eye and ear on us by governments and huge tech firms. Neither have very good ethics.

At the risk of sounding too paranoid I feel it is something we all have to be aware of and take steps to control if we can.

Happily, Apple are the one large tech company who take private data abuse seriously. They are alone of all the big tech companies who not only respect that your data is yours, they are active in lobbying governments to keep it that way, unlike most media companies who us and abuse us as a matter of course. Yes I’m talking about google, FaceBook and all the rest.
