Yi-Tan Call 287: The Total Surveillance Society (summary)

Does your mobile have a cool GPS feature? Do you shop with credit or debit cards? Would you like to be able to pay for things with your mobile instead? How convenient, no?

  • How will life be different? Is there a book or movie that captures it well?
