Ever since we all got iphones, my friends and I somehow always end up talking about how far technology has come. The conversation always starts praising the strides widely-available technology has taken.
The conversation then always quickly takes a turn.
One can not do anything on an iphone without having an apple id. In order to have one of those, you must register your name, email, address, and credit card information with itunes. However, people like me only purchase free apps. Why all the information?
Today in class we read the Washington Post article, “Parting with privacy with a quick click.” This article coincides with everything that my friends and I have been discussing. <http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/technology/parting-with-privacy-with-a-quick-click-for-adolescents/2011/04/28/AF2gSjTG_story.html>
Basically, with the widening of the internet comes the loosening of age-restrictions and restrictions in general. My generation and above has really dodged a bullet because the current generation is never alone. Somebody knows where they are at all times!
