"…unless we exercise choice about the technologies we adopt, we are abdicating ourselves from the throne of human responsibility. When we accept Amazon’s (rather far-fetched) drones without asking if we really want them, we become no more than drones ourselves – insentient machines whom companies can take cash from by simply exciting our fried circuits with the ‘ooohs’ and ‘ahhhhs’ of novelty. Google Glass is a fine example. In a socio-political context where it has been revealed that all of the big-tech companies have been cooperated with governments to allow them to snoop on us, it seems quite unbelievable that Glass could be any more than an April Fools prank. Really, Google want us to wear a device that allows live-video streaming of what we are seeing, audio recording of all we are saying – of neighbours and family members and unsuspecting people we happen to be near in bars and cafes – and we are meant to nod and say ‘yes please‘?"
