The technology has been in place for years now, but still, conspiracy theorists everywhere got the tin-foil hat treatment when they mentioned the concept that the government could be using all of these cameras to watch us. Think about how much more prolific cameras have become. The webcam boom ignited the idea of video chatting, and technology then put it where we could have it right on our phone. The new Samsung Galaxy S4 already takes a picture of you while you are taking a picture of something else and uses all sorts of facial recognition technology to track what you want it to do.
You’re not paranoid and you’re not crazy.
