Ah yes, ceiling cat is watching you masturbate. A classic meme. Fun for all the family.
All of this is small fry compared to what's coming:
Next time you go into your garden make sure you look up towards the sky to check that there isn’t something watching you. As reported in the Sunday Times, users of Apple iPhones will soon be able to see into people’s houses through skylights using a 3-D mapping service based on high resolution aerial photographs from spy planes.If they can see through skylights today, they will see through your windows tomorrow. The US government is already planning to use airborne drones the size of golf balls to spy on private citizens. But you could just draw the curtains, right? Or turn the lights off?
Google currently dominates the market with StreetView and has announced that it too also plans to use camera planes to produce new 3-D maps for its own products. This announcement comes at a time when there are still unanswered questions over the intrusion of privacy that the Street View service may present.
Yes, you can still do that, citizen - but these drones are equipped with heat-seeking cameras. We are on the verge of a technocratic totalitarianism, with both governments and multinational corporations clamoring to capture more data on what we're doing all the time.
This week Apple is expected to unveil their new app, Maps, for their iPhone and iPad which is set to rival Google Maps. With the assistance of Apple’s own private air force fitted with military grade camera equipment, they are able to capture the world’s towns and cities in high definition 3-D. The images are expected to be so detailed that they will be able to reveal objects four inches across.So unless you have been cursed with a chronically undersized organ, Google and Apple, and possibly even your own government, will soon be able to watch you masturbate. Or whatever else it is you do in private. Don't be embarassed, now - it's only a matter of time before it's in the public domain anyway!
Don't you feel so much safer knowing they're looking
