-- cell phones and how the newest Smartphones could mark the end of privacy Eric -- ever -- If you watch our show on Thursday's called.
Colin hunt is on doing today could be what -- -- on Thursday.
A 10 o'clock local 1 o'clock east eastern called tech tape -- -- -- before talking about technology today we're having him on the hunt talked about.
How these Smartphones could.
Could in effect.
Mark the end of privacy but you know Eric I gotta make the argument that privacy is already gone with Smartphones I have a body -- -- mentally -- I -- on what he does but he.
Yeah he basically says that you know Adam -- and five minutes I can basically find out your entire life when you have -- you know we're gonna get where you go.
Give up your finger minutes.
It's a little bit different give up you know facial recognition it's a little bit different that it's everything.
But you know more importantly is I mean look at the acts you like Nielsen gets -- -- can happen over a story in Newsweek that I downloaded it just.
About what I -- TV but turns out it's more than that Nelson wasn't like so forth right and what happens when you downloading map didn't so I -- know and.
You know research I found this federal case it's.
You know they admit the CEO lives in New -- of Nielsen these.
Feuding with the neighbor at the federal case.
I looked at Nielsen I -- like I got a question of corporate ethics -- they edit the the way they treat their vendor has the integrity of their of their data.
And I it'll that because I downloaded enough that I thought was just.
-- you have to talk to me about TV where it led to -- was.
This federal case -- success systems -- New Canaan Connecticut with two neighbors feeling one big guy one small guy.
Hey you know it's really surprising to me when you look behind the curtain it's not just your fingerprints it's not just facial you know recognition.
It's everything yeah I got you -- Smart on this past weekend I think all -- at opting in giving away every fan and you're right.
Most of us already have we just don't know.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I I I I gave up my Blackberry.
I got the Samsung galaxy and I got the iPhone is my back out.
-- -- you're living your had to do it.
Yeah I have my -- I -- I got I I I got.
I have an iPhone.
Good I got Blackberry withdrawal.
You know I have I've had a black -- the first one -- got me back in 2002.
I have -- I have the iPhone 5 which and they get an upgrade that much about what the thumbprint or not but I do want more more memory but that's a long story and how that happening -- don't.
I'm 3200000 all of -- things and any app there is that it's up TO -- do you say yes right you opt in or not opt it and makes life easy.
Everything is -- simple we can figure out everything I mean.
All the technologies intuitive about us -- tell us -- -- you know what right what we should be wearing based on the weather of the zip code that we live band.
And the traffic based on the route that we take.
But we you -- all right -- I mean just like gotten beat out they I mean in -- -- not seems pretty.
I know innocent or not but it's not not.
Another -- suffers why these guys saw my Blackberry I got.
He had the the mega the galaxy mega and I got tea towel aside three phones now the things all -- -- all three the new the new black for a hoping to get.
With still that the the keyboard executes and they column I've messed -- won them -- afford upgrading this thing here to that.
So I still like my like area when it comes emails we get so many -- here at fox.
But you know this summer things you don't have to opt in for air -- that's on that's what I think that's what's so disturbing to me when I heard this from one of my my very close friends is that.
-- basically bite you can access legally access my phone.
And figure out what time I get up what Tom I'd go to work where I -- my route is when I go to the store.
Date you can take out the battery from this Blackberry from this iPhone for any of your -- -- -- the batteries out.
You put the phone here.
They can still access the V camera they can still access the microphone.
I mean these are disturbing things at all and what really frustrates me -- two things one.
My hometown in Napa Valley there are now conducting a study because they want to know what traffic patterns are because there's so much traffic and Napa.
That they're gonna actually access all your license plate information.
And your -- information to figure out what really do we need that in Napa cal Arizona plus and is not drive in the -- -- Why the thing about some of this new technologies.
And and you and I have spoken little about this before it's.
What I had the entire country doesn't realizes -- -- we've we've already opted in whether we -- -- we didn't.
For what it doesn't matter what that let -- bells and whistles on -- -- opting in for.
There's all that extra you know you can take -- -- -- of -- found I can still watch in your bedroom I felt like it.
A gallon cell can -- out anybody and intelligence.
I'm not an intelligent but anybody can.
As we all now now from Edwards -- but governor I think the battery out yourself on I I can watch on TV around how many -- you can ask for that can opt in front you know right but now.
What's happened with an act and and I believe it'll come to the forefront.
All on privacy issues.
If you gonna give up a fingerprint and that you you know you saw what Franken sad he yesterday -- -- Your fingerprint is yeah.
You're in your face which we've got -- -- face but -- -- her I don't know couple years not least facial recognition it's Yale.
So you want to give up your fingerprint you only got ten they're all unique you're the only one that has them.
-- you know I think right now we're going a little bit overboard and I don't think people realize it before.
But not really give you my fingerprint.
Forget about my mother's maiden name of the street I grew up on my first pat -- -- my fingerprints.
It just so I can sign away my phone or or with the galaxy to hold it up because nobody else can read my galaxy unless I hold up and it's my face.
I opt out for that.
Yet and we -- to go but the the I think it's really disturbing as well.
Is that when -- -- -- in the NSA in this administration says or not recording anybody.
We're not doing that it did they're playing with words because maybe they aren't because they're having -- outside people do it that contractors.
And be record as the words don't even use anymore they're not they're not recording.
But they are catalog and keeping every single one of our conversations.
So they have to go back if all of -- -- -- are talking on TV and -- happens is that something as controversial the potentially could mean.
It's a security threat to the US it takes very little for them to be able to go to a judge and say.
Erica have a bonds said Adam -- that in a bubble -- -- block and they can go back and get every single one you are your phone calls your messages legally keep it and read it.
And people realize that at home.
And a little more often but it's -- and it's wrong.
Then up at the TV yes -- What I gonna get a watch list for saying -- stuff.
Well well obviously probably am now but is it -- the point is it's -- I think people really need to pay attention to that.
And something that we all need to continually watch because it's getting worse and now you mentioned there's a recognition.
I recognition and fingerprints are all going to be on phones people are giving up basically everything of value -- -- each day get up.
-- know right and here's what I'm doing Big Brother here and I'm doing today here's where I'm going here's -- eating.
And you know and make sure you get it get you get that sort of attention to them before you go and do whatever you do that they get permission real.
-- -- -- I'm over they'll.
The latest -- -- -- -- we appreciate you coming on.
Talking about everything follow the security good luck with -- you're gonna have to go back to -- some -- -- I thought Erica ha.
