Smartphones do so much they are to convenient and helpful. If you traveled back into time to lets say 1993 and showed people the thunderbolt the people wouldn't believe it. They would surely know you were from the future. If you went back to the 1800s you'd be burned as a witch. Ok these things make phone calls, text, the basics that 10 years ago most people didn't have. Gps that tells you where to go without getting lost, it's a walkman, video recorder, camera and mini hd television. It's a handheld video game system and online computer, email, ebooks, notepad, sound recorder, research tool, product ordering device online, ebay, social networks, flashlight, pictures, videos, music...etc etc etc Now the things they do in return..they track us, have the technology to listen to us , watch us, take our pictures, and god only knows what else......that's the problem I have with it. Who is to say they are not doing these things? They could and get away with it with ease. Facial recognition technology is scary it's used on social networks. What about someone without a facebook or twitter? But own a smartphone? Do they use your own phones camera to take your picture? Like Steve Jobs talked about doing a few years ago. Ya know taking your heartbeat, recording your face and using facial recognition technology. Ya know in case someone steals your phone they say?? Suuuure since when does apple care about you or your phone if it gets stolen?? Never knew they cared so much. Fishy world we live in eh???? Ten years ago tracking someone would of been against the law and against privacy rights..all of this would. Slowly dumbing up the People because people now accept it where in the past they would flip out. It's all about conditioning the masses and those with a free thinking minds they don't want....you could be considered a threat being about truth and what is right because that goes against the evil. So why they watching everyone again????
