Web-connected gadgets will 'transform' the art of spying and the real kicker is that Americans will willingly bug their own homes. "CIA Director David Petraeus cannot wait to spy on you" through your smart appliances, according to Danger Room.
Petraeus spoke about the coming "Internet of Things" at a summit for the CIA's venture capital firm In-Q-Tel. "Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters - all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing. The latter now going to cloud computing, in many areas greater and greater supercomputing, and, ultimately, heading to quantum computing."
