    AND you can get covert video glasses. So they're only giving in to a perceived, potential "risk".

    I'm thinking of that scene from Donnie Darko where the teacher tells the student that perhaps babies might not want to have images beamed directly into their retinas at all times (the homework was something like, create a device for teaching people earlier and more efficiently), that maybe part of their development requires certain periods of darkness and silence. Likewise, some of the happiest and most peaceful times I've been in were when I had zero connection to any devices and zero wi-fi.

    Well, there are laws as well as procedures that prevent your want from coming true. Because you cannot fire him doesn't mean he doesn't work for the people - it means he works for ALL the people and not just you. Just because I want my Congressman fired doesn't mean I get it either; that doesn't change the fact he's a public servant and works for me whether I like what he does or not.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Not in my house they can't. And the restaurant is somebodies private property.

    Likewise, maybe we need to question why certain things embarrass us. Why, for instance, does it matter if someone sees you naked? We all have the same bits and pieces anyway.

    It will be interesting to see how society adapts and how people change their thinking to cope with the new reality that you really can't have too many secrets anymore.
    You seriously would be OK with the world seeing all of your private actions and hearing your private thoughts?

    It should be common sense to not video people without their consent, and it is ilegal in many states.

    Why would you think an establishment would have a sign to prohibit something so new they probably didn't know anything about it?

    I wonder why the customer chose to leave instead of putting them away?

    What was he doing with them?

    Was he there to eat or video?

    Sounds like he left in a huff.

    And to be frank, it's not just other people you need to be worried about, it's your government as well. Look at the NSA thing . That's not an aberration, that's the brave new world. You think you're anonymous online? Think again.

    So the question is, do we bitch and complain about it, or do we adapt and thrive. I vote adapt and thrive.

    Technology is normally a good thing but it does have a tendency to change the world. Violently, even brutally sometimes, but if history has taught us one thing it's never be on the wrong side on the fence when it comes to embracing a sweeping new technology.
    If you choose to be on the internet and understand your movements are being watched, then that was your choice.

    If I go into a restaurant, I did not choose to be videoed and uploaded to Google.

    Do you see a difference there?
