"Technology is rapidly moving into our bodies," writes cyber expert Tom Keenan, "and this book gives a chilling look ahead into where that road may lead us." Here is the definitive dissection of privacyeroding and lifeinvading technologies, coming at you from governments, corporations, and the person next door. Take, for example, the furor over "Girls Around Me," a Russianmade iPhone app that allowed anyone to scan the immediate vicinity for girls and women who checked in on Foursquare and had poorly secured Facebook profiles. Going to a Disney theme park? Your creepy new "MagicBand" will alert Minnie Mouse so she'll know your kid's name when you approach her. Thinking about sending your DNA to Ancestry.com for some "genetic genealogy"? Careful: your genetic information could be used against you.
