With more tech companies entering the market, these algorithms become ever harder to police and regulate. And while we are no fan of FAANG, we also feel that the regulation around data acquisition and processing needs to prohibit everyone with $10 from setting up a data collection company. 

Only then can we deal with the moral and ethical issues raised by data acquisition.

Ironically, and totally independently GadgetGuy’s managing editor Ray Shaw has written a piece titled ‘The key technology issues in 2020 – and you won’t like them (New Year Rant)’ and I can only say that it needs to be mandatory reading too.

Happy New Year from the US. We have the utmost sympathy for the Australian bushfire victims.

More tech means less privacy, More tech means less privacy, More tech means less privacy, More tech means less privacy.
