You're right, Gorksi. All you have to do is look at YouTube to understand how many people are taking unsuspecting videos.

I think you're right on that one, too, Rob. Fortunately, I don't depend on software to figure out or find what I like.

If the programs ever crack your individual code of interests, it may be time to worry.

I think your guess is right, Rob. But what's worse is the fact that I have very specialized tastes within the (many) categories and these programs can't keep up. Yet that's what they're supposed to do.

"With the recent NSA and Microsoft XBOX ONE revelations, I think people are going to soon get fed up with the constant spying and data gathering. No wonder the VPN industry is blowing up in popularity."

Cabe, oho that's a bad news and it's against our privacy.

My guess, Ann, is that you have wide-ranging eclectic tastes and it makes the programs tear their hair out -- so to speak.

Apresher,

You made me think... will any of this spying and data gathering ever benefit the individual?

Seems like it is only used to make sure we are following the rules, and how to squeeze more money out of us.

Chuck, you think face-to-fqce conversation is still safe? How do you knw if the other party isn't bugged or filming you non an iphone with the camers and sound on?

I'm the same, bobjengr. I never considered myself paranoid, but I'm now careful about all messages on e-mail and IM. Personal face-to-face conversation is one of the few communication realms that I still consider completely safe.
