4 Ways the Surveillance State is Expanding That You Haven’t Thought Of

RFID drinks and more. My first story on Medium explores some things you might not know about — and seeks to  explain the bigger picture to an audience that probably doesn’t want to hear it.

Marketing ads, soon to be screening on your car dashboard

Because you aren’t getting marketed enough. 
Yet another reason not to buy an internet enabled car. Then again, that’s getting harder and harder too.

Bitcoin Crash?

The short version is no, Bitcoin didn’t crash. It corrected. It’ll be going back up soon. (By the way, this is why I advised you to sweep your profits yesterday.)

If you didn’t have any BTC to sweep when it was high, today’s a good day to buy. At the time of this writing, Bitcoin is at $9250, which is down significantly from the $11,800 it was briefly at yesterday — and it’s higher than the bottom it hit last night at $8595.

I should also point out that you don’t need to buy a full Bitcoin. You could go by a minute fraction of Bitcoin ($20 even), and then when it doubles, you move that $20 of profit to something else. I don’t advise transferring it back into USD, since the government is suddenly very interested in who’s ‘doing Bitcoin’ and making money. Go to Gyft.com and buy a giftcard for any one of hundreds of stores. Use it to pay for a silver coin. Whatever.  There are plenty of things you can spend your Bitcoin profits on.
