'But the industry convinced itself'
That sums things up right there.... Whether its Reality-Distortion-Field economics or the Surveillance-Economy, its clear not many of us want this. Yet our input is never listened to anymore. From Silly 'con' Valley to South Korea, tech executives are tone deaf! You know, with Android-slurp, Win10-slurp, SmartTV-slurp, IoT-slurp, Car-slurp etc.... CES should really be renamed 'Surveillance-World'! But no one gives a fuck what we think. We're supposed to give thanks anyway, like we're dealing with God!
