Wearable Computing

It is definite that Google glass, and technology like it such as Smart Watches are an evolutionary step in the direction of technology. That is, those developments of technology are the direction that I see technology heading. As Google glass enables individuals to enjoy more culture-fulfilled life in that it can catch every single moments of enjoyable activity that can be missed easily. Moreover, Smart Watches makes people access to much useable information without hardness. The technology like those leads people to have more rich life and that’s what the technology should do.

While those technologies have benefits like this-benefits of make more rich life, there are downsides as well. For instance, such advanced technologies can easily be taken by someone even without consciousness who might use this technology with inappropriate purpose such as stealing one’s private information. Therefore, technology should not only be developed as the way that make people’s life more rich but also be strong and protective to prevent the negative sides.

Private information

In my opinion, private information includes personal data such as bank account number and social securty number as well as national secret and corporation information. All this information must be protected and not be used for one’s own purpose without permission. Moreover, this information also posesses own rights.

Therefore, if so much information is given away freely via social media, there must be lots of problems with either corporations or governmnet reviewing published information. Much of the information could be used for one’s benefit or other private reasons, for example, revenge. In worse situation, corporations can monopolize and oligopolize, which can have negative influence on consumers, and world nations can even go into a war.

 

Illegal Downloading

In Korea, there is a campaign called “Good Downloader”. It aims for protecting legal rights of film producesr and actors, encouraging the public to pay appropriate money for downloading movies. Illegal downloading does not only include films, but also softwares, pictures, and other programs that has a clear producer who has his or her own rights toward their works. Therefore, it is obvious that illegal downloading is not a victimless crime and that it can damage one’s legal rights.
 
It is no exaggeration to say that illegal downloading is as same as stealing. It is an act that harms one’s property. Taking others own property without his or her permission and using for one’s own purpose is definitley ‘stealing’. Therefore, illegal downloading is a problem that has to be solved in this informaion-oriented era where there is always a possibility that one’s rights can be violated.
