When We Become Our Phones

When We Become Our Phones

2020-10-2801:09:39

It's bizarre to think that -- not too long ago -- the idea of having something as powerful as a smart phone in your pocket would seem like something out of Star Trek. But now these handy devices go with us throughout most of our lives. A steady stream of feel-good chemicals from social media, dangerously convenient ways of buying things through apps, health and location tracking and more. And every piece of data is, somehow, tracked. While it's no secret that companies use information like this for targeted advertising, the true potential of this data aggregation, and the true danger this aggregation poses for society, has only recently come to light. Join the guys to learn more about what happens in a world where you become your phone. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

On the border of Mexico and the US, a small group of farmers may have just provided the spark to the world's next water war. All this and more in this week's Strange News segment.

Mr Wolters said on his TV show that the stone is a real relic. Come on.

What about the geological exams by Scott Wolters? He says that it's real. He wrote a book about the subject. The hooked X. Olaf bought the ruin books after he found the stone. Seems like selective reporting.

Shane Dawson and Jeffree Starr have been exposed for racist behaviour many times. Jeffree has drugged people, threatened to throw battery acid at black women, Shane has pedo rumours. Do not promote or work with them.

These guys have horrible knowledge of serial killers. It’s as though they simply googled serial killers and read what they found. Talk about a #shitpodcast I’m pretty sure ALL serial killers, NO ALL CRIMINALS you #absolutedipshits try to cover up their crimes. There are numerous far better podcasts out there #fuckthispodcast

facebook, Twitter and the others are covered from being sued because they "say" they are a platform on which anyone can write anything. when they start censoring what they "allow" or deem "ok", then they are no longer playing the role of a platform but they have become an editor.

Archaeology field is full of discovery mongers who refuse to go with the evidence and abandon their own position because of ego and status
