Welcome to the future
After going through the post it seems that financial gain is what is on the mind of developers. But to have these gains they want to sell their product. It seems to be a sugar coated pill which will definitely has few benefits but harmful experiences as well. The invasion of privacy is already there as once surfing the internet you are offered with the ads that relate to your interest based on your location, gender and age group. Initially few eyebrows were raised but later it becomes normal practice. It seems same will be followed with these gadgets.

Re: Welcome to the future
Yes, you're right that we're already living in a world where we are captured and tracked and sold to. At least Amazon isn't trying to pretend otherwise. It's a nakedly mercenary stance, and even though it's repulsive, at least it's honest.

Re: Welcome to the future
@Drew corrct and it also proves my stance that we are the ones who actually got accustomed to wrong doings. They are invasioning our privacy and acclaimed it but we are saying that they are honest. I think if all others start doing the same can we say no problem they are at least honest. A big food for thought.

Re: mouthwad
I was going for parody, but it can be hard with technology because there's so much ridiculous stuff actually out there. Mouthwad is not real (though if someone rolls it out, I want a percentage!).

Re: mouthwad
I think I was tired last night when I read this article because I see parody now. You are right in that there is so many crazy tech gadgets it can be hard to make one up.

That pocket casino might just take off!

Re: mouthwad
@Pauls681 I agree with you. I am n ot sure that its real but if its so, the services they are promoting did not seem to work as it will be near to impossible to deliver the product with multiple sources in 120 sec. Still if they can it will be nothing less than a miracle.

Game to loose
Pocket casino, I am always aginst these products as you cannot challenge waht is going on. A computer controlling your transactions and your game is a combination to loose. Better be there really and play instead loose all your money with your own hand without your knowledge.

Re: Game to loose
I agree but there are many that don't think about that part of it. It's an addiction and they will take a chance with online gambling unfortunately.

Re: Game to loose
@Paul agree. I think thats there aim, that is to create an addiction and stop decision power. If people start thinking sensibly how can they earn ;)
