>James Clapper, the US director of national intelligence, told lawmakers Tuesday that governments across the globe are likely to employ the Internet of Things as a spy tool, which will add to global instability already being caused by infectious disease, hunger, climate change, and artificial intelligence.
>"Smart devices incorporated into the electric grid, vehicles—including autonomous vehicles—and household appliances are improving efficiency, energy conservation, and convenience. However, security industry analysts have demonstrated that many of these new systems can threaten data privacy, data integrity, or continuity of services. In the future, intelligence services might use the loT for identification, surveillance, monitoring, location tracking, and targeting for recruitment, or to gain access to networks or user credentials," Clapper said
Surprise, Surprise, the IoT is being used to collect more information at the price of convinces. Is privecy even worth fighter for, it's impossible to win. Just like Peter Sunde said 'I Have Given Up'
If we calm down then faggots who have no idea how unwanted they are on /g/ will make this place worse than /v/ by posting shit that just doesn't belong on this board.
I don't even care if you are just doing this to piss people off, calming down is the worse possible thing we could do.
Privacy is something we need on the internet, but let face it. It's not going to happen anytime soon, technology of the future is just going get us more "connected" with other people and the internet. There's no stopping it.
I agree anon, we can fight for out freedom on the internet. But well never gain it, I can possibly see the government getting rid of their hold on the internet, especially when companies already profit from selling their data.
>Internet of Things to be used as spy tool by governments
Wow, who would have expected that.
>However, security industry analysts have demonstrated that many of these new systems can threaten data privacy, data integrity, or continuity of services
Holy shit, Clapper said something true as fuck.
>butthurt weeaboos getting triggered because OP's pic is not animu
Can we take the time and see the retardation that comes from IoT. There's so many products and devices that are being connected to the internet, and for what reason! The world is not ready every device to be connected to the internet.
People getting so worked up over a single image, because of a jpeg that doesn't align with their interests.
Fuck off weebs already, it used to be a purely anime website at the start, but not anymore thanks to the success of /b/. People dont come here to discuss japanese cartoons but come here because they hear of all the antics of /b/ and think its a cool place to be
Hey OP, did you know that it's the modus operandi of any intelligence agency in the world, not just the US, but all of them, to utilise any means available and necessary to complete their mission of intelligence gathering?
I came here because I was sick of 'mainstream' social media sites. I like to talk about technology with you anons.
I have deep interest in anime like a significant portion of this board, and this website as a whole.
I don't even mind anime, I actually even like some of it and watch occasionally, but it's pretty clear that 4chan is not an anime website anymore.
This. If IoT didn't exist you'd be going "CELL PHONES are a way for the GOVERNMENT to SPY on its CITIZENS"
If cellphones didn't exist you'd be going "TELEPHONES are a way for the GOVERNMENT to SPY on its CITIZENS"
If telephones didn't exist you'd be going "AEROPLANES are a way for the GOVERNMENT to SPY on its CITIZENS"
If aeroplanes didn't exist you'd be going "AUTOMOBILES are a way for the GOVERNMENT to SPY on its CITIZENS"
If automobiles didn't exist you'd be going "EYEBALLS are a way for the GOVERNMENT to SPY on its CITIZENS"
If eyeballs didn't exist you'd be going "EARDRUMS are a way for the GOVERNMENT to SPY on its CITIZENS"
If eardrums didn't exist you'd be going "NERVE ENDINGS are a way for the GOVERNMENT to SPY on its CITIZENS"
If nerve endings didn't exist you'd be going "EXISTENCE are a way for the GOVERNMENT to SPY on its CITIZENS"
it was taken no further than op takes his argument, perhaps not even than far.
that's the thing about proving a negative, you can't logically prove it because it's beyond the realm of logic.
The privacy of your IoT devices depends largely on YOU. Much like IP cameras and your router, if you don't secure them then people will access them.
The problem is that the vast majority of people don't know shit and the devices, by default, are set up to be easy to use so that the regular customer doesn't feel stupid.
Reminder that trolls are often undercover agents.
Reminder that changing the subject of threads are part of their strategy.

In that case, I have to warn you, Hillary is better prepare to kick out the fat of corrupt intelligence agents due to experience and Obama's support.
The defamatory campaign against Hillary is because of that, to avoid having her in the presidential seat.
Not that I don't say Bernie is a great candidate, but you can bet the intelligence communities are preparing a false flag attack when Bernie assumes presidency.
Scary that shit like this is happening.
Just like those Windows 10 posters starting the same 42kb image threads and replying to windows 10 threads, dedicating some small, short, element of praise in hopes they can cause confusion in the majority as long as they aren't called out.
It feels kind of sad until you realize that it actually works... It might not be fast, it might not be efficient, but it's better than nothing and thus what is used.
That is XJ-8, if that's what you're asking. And yes, I would XJ-8. She's the second best!
