    Interesting that the developer refers to a "broad debate". As far as the UK government's concerned, there is no debate and they ignore the ICO and others' very clear complaints about the use of the technology. But then, they have a history of ignoring privacy issues and other costs of mass surveillance.

    Your cell/mobile phone/PC camera is watching you and listening to everything. 1984 is here again. or as Yogi Berra once said: "It's deja vu all over again".
