    Who finds the possibilities of this as chilling as I do?
    I love the possibilities.

    Combined with the background check app, people can play detective for real

    Apps are really great for the dating scene too.

    Oh, you checked out on your background check. Let's see...you have any STD's?

    Safe sex? There’s an app for that - Salon.com

    Well, everything clean there...good.

    Sheeple will definitely like this technology, but I want nothing to do with it.

    I find THIS far, far, far more worrisome.

    You ever watch the movie Amazon Women on the Moon? Hilarious if you've not seen it. Lots of cameos, etc. In one part, Rosanna Arquette is waiting for her blind date, Steve Guttenberg, to pick her up. When he gets there, she asks for his driver's license. She goes over and puts it in this huge, antiquated computer, and her dot matrix printer starts printing out page after page of his personal information, including his credit history, what kind of driver he is, and how often he calls girls back after the first date. Hilarious. He gets all butt hurt because she won't go out with him after his bad "history," so he leaves. He goes out of her building, straight to a pay phone and calls up his "back up" date, and she's like, "Sure, I'll go out with you. Be sure and bring your driver's license when you pick me up."

    If it were only that easy.

    Er.. well, it kind of is, now.

    Because new is always scary. Boo
