"A device the size of a sugar cube will be able to record and store high resolution video footage of every second of a human life within two decades, experts said yesterday."

On the one hand you’re privacy will literally disappear into thin air but on the other hand crime would dramatically decrees.

For personal use, this type of technology can come in handy once you reach old age. If you’re having trouble remembering your past, all you have to do is hit rewind and play on your computer. Better yet, the image will probably pop up in you brain, so all you would have to do is carry a remote control in your pocket.

Think about the hacking possibilities, though.

Wasn't there a movie that explored this whole concept? [EDIT: Nevermind, I realized I was probably thinking of Minority Report.]

Hey, thanks! Looking at the description I realize I did hear about that film. I saw the trailer but never watched the movie. Somehow I forgot about it and ended up thinking of a scene from Minority Report.

This is bad. I'm too young to be having these kind of memory lapses. ;-)

I need one of those memory implants. :-0

And for most, 95% of it would be on the electronic floor.

Who would want to store (or sit through) the 98% of life that is boring mundane and/or embarassing for the 2% or less that might be interesting?

And since the post-MTV-generation has the attention span of a gnat, who would care????
