My thoughts tend to go to dark places these days. And so when I watched Google on Wednesday trot out one after another of its homegrown computing devices for every task and every nook of our homes, I went straight to dystopia: R.I.P. digital competition.

Nothing to add.

That's all you need to know.

They (and so does the likes of FB etc) want to know about your life, the people you interact with, where you go. In short, what you are for breakfast, listened to and everthing, and I mean everything about you.
They will then sell it to advertisers.

As for these devices that they want to put in every home that will spy on us and do their job for them AND they expect us to pay them for the [redacted] of letting their crap inside our homes? You gotta be kidding. No, No and thrice No. This is far too close to what Orwell predicted more than sixty years ago.

I won't have anything to do with them now or in the future.
I hate all adverts and I once worked for an Advertising Company (which probably explains it)...

If anyone thinks that they are intruding in your life then I'm sorry to tell you, it will get a lot, lot, lot worse.
That good enough for you Thom!
