Technology has made significant progress, making our lives easier. Although it has innumerable benefits, the harmful effects of technology cannot be ignored either. Industrialist Anand Mahindra shared a post, discussing the troubling aspects of the technology.
The video, posted to Twitter, begins with a man ordering a pizza from “Google Pizza”. As he continues his conversation with a Google Pizza representative, he realizes that the search engine knows a lot of his personal information, such as his health issues and bank statements. Alongside the video, Anand Mahindra wrote a caption that read, “Big brother is watching (always).” He added: “The defining emotion of the 21st century will be claustrophobia.”

The video then attracted a lot of attention, as several users could relate to the video. One of the users wrote: “A time will come soon when people will want to go back to a pre-smartphone era”.
Reacting to the video, another user wrote that this was the reason he chose to refrain from sharing personal information online, even being on all social media platforms. He added that he used Google in incognito mode to protect his data.
It’s true, they know a lot about us. this is the reason why i am available on all social media platforms but i hardly shared any information about it in public even when i use google i use it in incognito mode.

A third user wrote: “They store it and analyze it too. Incognito mode just doesn’t store things that you can look at and they have full records of it.”
“It’s a pity on our part! We accept all TOS without even reading them,” another comment read.

Imagine what would happen in 50 years without strong data privacy laws and strong governance to manage it

It’s a shame for us! We accept all T&Cs without even reading them.

Earlier, the industrialist posted a video of a food vending machine serving ready-made South Indian breakfast. Freshot, a tech startup, had created a food vending machine. It is said to be able to produce over 70 idlis with chutney and other accompaniments in less than 10 minutes.
So many people have tried to create food preparation robots / vending machines. Assuming it meets FSSAI standards and the ingredients are adequately chilled? How does it taste, people of Bengaluru? I would love to see this window appear in airports/malls around the world. Will be a great “cultural” export! pic.twitter.com/C8SjR6HwPK
