The Future

My friends were surfing websites selling electronics, smart TVs and phones, wireless routers; they also visited an electronics big box store to find the biggest bang for their buck. They were shocked to get an email from Google that said, based on recent credit card and internet activity, Google correctly predicted (proactively) the odds that they were in the market for specific devices. Based on preferences from their profiles, Google made the choice for them and shipped the product. The cost was deducted from their bank account. “Thanks for your business!” (Apparently, they forgot to “opt-out” of this automatic service when they downloaded some software.)
