Apparently Everything According to a
New GE Commercial
by Vigilant Dave
In this GE commercial we are flooded with warm fuzzy images – a father playing with his child, a mother affectionately holding her baby. Then the commercial goes on to tell us of the wonders of appliances we can monitor and control from our smart phones, appliances that listen to us and respond to verbal commands, and so much more. What about our privacy? Blankout! What about giving up control of our appliances to utility companies or energy czars? Blankout! What about the fact that devices that can listen for our commands can also record every bit of conversation that happens in a home? Blankout again!
Were all these new features created in order to satisfy consumer desires? Or are we being soft soaped into accepting all this to satisfy the desires of a political and technocratic elite who want to manage our lives?
Everyone should watch this video and decide:
