The information highway proudly presents: THE INFORMATION UNIT...
In the next couple years it’s coming to a hand on your body. The one thing everyone will have, carry, love and hate – all at the same time – in one simple package.
What looks like an iPhone will in fact become, well, central to everything in your life. The UNIT, will still work as a cell phone and micro computer for calling and texting. However the UNIT will have everything about YOU in it or on it. Your I.D., as in your drivers license, Passport, social security card, insurance information, your credit cards, criminal history (well, mine anyway), birth certificate, car registration.
I think you get the picture – your entire life, finally, in one spot on one device.
Is this a good thing? Yes and no.
Yes because it means no more wallets, back pockets, lost credit cards, "forgot my drivers license," your passport and the like. Not sure I like the criminal history part, but for the average person it will likely just include include your driving record, tickets, wrecks, so forth.
So we all become a one stop shop.
Easy to carry, less likely to be lost. And even if you do break or lose it, no problem. Just get a new one. It will even have your bank account and checks information and an ATM enabler for getting cash.
What a marvel – Big Brother finally wins!
The government’s got everything about you and everything you own in one spot. So good and bad. Our lives reduced to a single, tiny device. That’s the near future, count on it.
Oh yeah, you’ll still be able to watch a movie or TV show, how great is that!
We all knew this was coming, but to think in just a couple years. Brother how time flys when we figure it all out. Just think Space Odyssey, you know the first one. Its here.
