Do you really need It?

The technological advances we're given have sex appeal, but they're not for our benefit. Almost every new technology these days has a data tracking component. Why do they want to know every move you make? Just to sell you something?

Do you really need It?

Before you invest in some new technology, upgrade current technology or software, give it some careful thought. Do you really need it? Is it going to give you some significant benefit? Will it live up to its promise? Its only logical that overt or covert data collection will increase as new devices and software become available. Cloud computing, location tracking, 'black boxes' for cars that monitor your driving habits, RFID, biometric identification, 'enhanced' reality devices, smart appliances, and many more emerging technologies will contribute to our enslavement.
We're incentivized to buy into it willingly, without realizing the accumulative long term consequences.

Keep your land line

Many people are cancelling their land phone and only having a cell phone. This is not a good thing. Once enough people have ditched their land lines, a cell will be the only option. And that's another step into slavery because among other things, it will be a big step towards the cashless society. When everybody has a cell, person to person financial transactions will be possible. Then every single item you buy will be cataloged and data mined. If you buy something at a garage sale, you'll be taxed on it.

Yes, in many ways a cell is more convenient than a land line, but that's the bait. A few years ago, people got along fine without a cell phone. Now, cell phones have brought about whole new psychological issues as people are addicted to their phones and experience intense anxiety when their phone is not on their person.

People are also replacing land lines with internet based phones. The financial incentive is strong, but reception is spotty, and you have no phone if the power goes out. I'm sticking with the tried and true Bell lines as long as its possible to do so.
