New Technology: Metadata for Everything

I am always curious to see what technology has in store for us. As this lengthy web video shows, there is room for the online world to contribute to our lives in EVERY setting. We can interact with a single device to learn about everything we see, to record our lives, and to control our transactions. It can effect our relationships, our purchases, and our travel plans.

The key questions I have begun asking myself is: "where is this information coming from? & Are these sources trustworthy and unbiased?" My fear is that a device will come along that is extremely helpful, but extremely biased, and that it's bias will lead us to act maliciously toward a group of people, a specific country, or against the church.
