Privacy be damned! The new digital age of consumerism is delectable


   0

I continue to be enthralled by the vivid future that Hollywood sci-fi has painted for years. Populating that scenario is TED and a host of other visionaries &  products that seem to imply, that the future will have virtual highways that will read me, my emotions, my desires and what not.
