Tech Companies News Byte: The Pros and Cons of a Surveillance Society

Wochit 1:15 mins

The surveillance program of the national security agency known as Prism; the death of Trayvon Martin; and Google Glass and the rise of wearable computers that record everything. Although these might not seem connected, they are part of a growing move for, or against, a surveillance society. On one side of this issue we have people declaring that too much surveillance, especially in the form of wearable cameras and computers, is detrimental and leaves people without any privacy in public. On the other side there are people who argue that a society with cameras everywhere will make the world safer and hold criminals more accountable for their actions. Google appears to be getting ready to introduce the next generation of its Nexus tablets. The unveiling is likely to come at a July 24 event in San Francisco. Google Inc. sent invitations Wednesday to the media. Earlier reports have claimed that Google is preparing to release a sequel to its popular Nexus 7 tablet. It has also been suggested that the second-generation slate will be priced higher than its predecessor.
