Technology is our constant companion, for some it is a salve for superstitions and fears of the dark. But this Big Brother with infinite knowledge has you fooled. Ghosts in the machine are real.

After that, nighttime video binging will lead us to eerie prophecies. And finally, pushing shuffle play will have dire consequences.
