Five very cool (but kinda creepy) mobile technologies
The mobile technology business is booming, with cool new applications and services continually emerging to users stay connected, informed, productive, entertained – or, well, distracted.
But with great mobile technology comes great responsibility (apologies for Spider-Man). Some of the innovations coming down the pike rank high on the Creep-o-Meter, in that they potentially equip malicious entities – both individuals and organizations – with scary new ways to stalk, scam, and otherwise exploit victims. There are so many cool applications for augmented reality, for entertainment, educational, and professional purposes. But consider all the data you're handing over in exchange for that instant information – where you are, who you're with, what you are looking for – and the creepy factor skyrockets.
