Who rules the tech roost right now?

We can worry about the way the world of technology is going all we like, but it is up to us to review what we are happy with individually. Too many people are like sheep and just go along with things because that is what everyone does. Is it what is right for you? Are you as an individual happy with the way things are going?
Who controls what you do? Who controls the influences that makes you make decisions? Who is the one who owns and is ultimately responsible for the safety and security of your information? Have you read any of the terms and conditions from Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon or Facebook? No, probably no one you know has. That leaves people very wide open to change affecting them that they aren’t happy with. Incremental changes were so small that you won’t have noticed the difference between 2008 and 2018 month by month.
What is the level of control that you are happy with other people having with your information – photos, contact lists, location details, shopping habits, likes and dislikes, emotions, and much more. We have big choices ahead as to what we want to accept from these big companies. Or we will just be swept along with it all and we will soon be in 2018 reminiscing on how much simpler life was back in the day.
