    And in case you're thinking "this sounds rather like fiction"

    George Orwell simply got the year wrong in his vision of the future.
    Which appears to be worryingly accurate.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    I know a bloke here who's developed a facial recognition application for cafes, so that when customers walk in, their name and regular coffee order appears on the screen for the barista...

    What's wrong with their own firkin eyes!! When I worked at my local, you'd recognise the face yourself and start pouring, not rely on tech to direct you.

    Is that facial recognition or just a camera though?

    What do they do with the wasted coffee when the customer, not being a dreary knobhead who always orders the same thing, orders something different?

    As it should be. I worked in a pub a little over 30 years ago and there was a chap that came in every night and drank 2 pints of Special and a bottle of Old Nick. I went in there a couple of months ago for the first time in many years, no prizes for guessing what he was drinking.

    The new EU GPDR will put a stop to a lot of this when it comes into force.

    Explicit consent will be required, and it has to be as easy to remove consent as give it. If you ask for your history to be deleted from the system then it has to be done.

    Even the police will only get limited exceptions to this.

    Haven't you heard about Britain's relationship with the EU?
    I believe that there is a thread on the matter. :lol:

    Yeah but the leave campaign said we can still have access to the single market, still have the same immigration laws, still have the same protection, still have the same human rights legislation in fact everything will be the same, but we don't pay anything ... so we will be covered :mrgreen:

    Well, quite. If we vote to :oops: ourselves then we shouldn't be surprised to get :oops: 'd on a regular basis.

    But the GPDR should be in force before Brexit so it'll probably stick around until someone induces our politicians to remove it.
