We've all seen the headlines. The almighty state is bugging your communications, whether you're a criminal or not. Massive multinationals are selling your data for profit, and have no regard for your privacy. We're living in Orwell's 1984, whether you like it or not. Or, the sky is blue, the Pope's a Christian, spies spy and companies (not all) make money. Google provide an excellent service by analysing your data and offering you the things you need. Going on holiday? I'll advertise you travel insurance. Looking for pets? Here's a link for Pets at Home. You use Facebook to communicate with friends worldwide, and protestors embraced Twitter for the Arab Spring.

Do you think civil liberties are there to be trampled on in the interests of national security? What are intelligence agencies spying on in this day and age? Do you trust Google, Facebook and Apple?

Idly wondering these things at the moment, and probably more interested in your browsing and technology habits, than political debate.
