Re: Remote shutdown
I absolutely agree with you, the demand for pre-controlled devices will almost become a black market. Like a sci-fi movie, the more devices and really anything connected becomes subjected to both surveillance but also remote access/termination, the more the backlash. We saw what happened when the world started to understand the realities of the Internet and how limited personal freedom was, and extending it to controlling how information can be used, when and where, and physically disabling personal property is probably going to cause an even bigger backlash.
I guess it's time to start stocking those old Nokia phones. After all, if anything will survive, it's those.
