Re: mugging cartoon caption
So lame but my head immediately began singing this old tune when I read this caption...

It's all about the money! It's all about the tech and dollars and more, don't think it's funny--but it's all real anyway.

Mugging Cartoon
In a dystopian 2020, CCTVs are no longer used to nab thieves or snatches. Rather, they're now solely used for targeted advertising.

Re: Perfect Harmony
I wonder if we'll get any "iThumb" insurance policy. We might need it soon.

Don't worry, we will do a digital facial improvement before you are seen on the national news! Of course, we will bill your insurance accordingly.  drmrs  1/12/2014

Perfect Harmony
The iRobber Marketing System, Apple's iBeacon, facial recognition and Apple TV products all work in perfect harmony for the next generation of marketing.

Re: today's cartoon
Funny, kq4ym... I think you're right to say this isn't far fetched.

I bet there are a lot of "amusing" scenarios that have been represented in our cartoon section that are likely to come true in the not-too-distant future!

Re: today's cartoon
Not too far fetched to believe. With sharing of data widely spread it easy to contemplate how crime victims can be the recipients of all sorts of targeted advertising, from phone messages, to targeted video ads.
