It was bound to happen, anyway. Truth is, technology is a tool, and by itself, it can't do anything. WE control technology. WE decide if it'll help us or harm us. WE are the ones who will use it for good or for evil.

Unfortunately, it's bringing a huge responsibility upon us, and I fear of our capability to assume it. If history has taught me anything, is that the more tools a human can have to abuse of others, and the system, the more tempted they will be to do so, and it's very likely we will. In fact, we're doing it already by over exploiting our natural resources. I'm more worried about that than a financial elite overruling my life. Ever heard of the Pareto Principle? The famous 80-20 rule. 80% of the world's wealth and resources are owned by 20% of the people's population. These days, it's what we know as the 99-1 thanks to the greed of humans.

We are greedy, we want to be better than others, we are selfish as a race. It's embedded in our genes, it's what allowed us to survive thousands of years ago, and unfortunately, that will never fade away. It's an endless cycle: a society is established, a few become powerful, those individuals become more greedy and selfish, things go out of control, they take down the existing regime and a new one arises, then repeat.

Our current (and future) technology will only make things easier to abuse of the system and its members, causing even bigger problems than what we've seen before.

So is this where laugh about how our dad's sat around watching a 600 dollar tv that used 400 watts of electricity because of tube technology about how the world makers and shakers were going to make hovercars for everyone.

And we start buying the future world only it doesn't work and spend all our time reading useless faq's about how to fix it.

RFID has absolutely 0 future.

It won't happen quite like that, a lot of those rectangles have rounded corners and a predominant screen...

Interesting vision, but things like this get outdated fast. I wonder what peoples' reactions will be to watching this video in 10 years time...

Reminds me of 2015 as seen in the 1980s (Back to the Future).

Only thing I saw then that will be accurate in 2015 is the crazy inflation.

Oh, and about the video... smartcars = lulz
