This comes from the NumLock daily newsletter

A new report analyzing municipal surveillance found that six U.S. cities cracked the top fifty when it came to security camera use, which from 2012 to 2016 had been estimated to have grown from 33 million to 62 million in the U.S. Eight of the top ten cities were in China, the other two being London (68.4 cameras per 1,000 people) and Atlanta (15.56 cameras per thousand). Other U.S. cities in the top 50 were Chicago (13.06 cameras per person) which beat out Baghdad (12.3) and Washington D.C. (5.61) which came out just north of St. Petersburg (5.53). China is the surveillance capital of the world, as by 2020 anywhere from 200 million to 626 million cameras will be in use, up to one CCTV camera for every two people.

Yup, that snowden one was even causing a bit of ruckus on internet, but I guess its more to do with his repo than the info he revealed. However I liked the previous video more, often people ignore it and that dude is very well respected gadget reviewer, so it was something I could understand and relate to more.

here is the challenge that we face Kodak at the height of its power , the photography company employed more than 140,000 people and was worth $28 billion. They even invented the first digital camera. In 2014 a share was worth $36.88 today $2.66 the new face of photography are mobile phones and Instagram . Instagram was sold to Facebook for a billion dollars in 2012 and employed 13 people. As with Facebook Instagram value comes from the millions of users contribute to those network without being paid and there information is then data mined and then sold on.
The greatest fortunes in history have been created recently by using network technology" Google, Facebook" as a way to concentrate information therefore wealth and power.
The data is mined without paying for it . The data is then analyzed using the most powerful computers , run by the very best available technicians . The primary business of networks is the creation of ultra secret mega dossiers on individuals and using this information to manipulate and to concentrate power and wealth.

We have talked a lot about the problem and its not a secrete anymore that it is there to stay for very long haul.

So whats the solution? Or at least walk around?

Here is one example of it



Watch the whole video even if you do not plan to do it, you will have better understanding of how google links and collects everything

Warning: Do not do this on your primary phone, while side loading different roms have become easy over the years it is still warranty killer and sometimes phone killer. There are also region specific implications, you can get away with it in my part of the world but not necessarily in yours, so check that out locally.

Thanks @LastDino, I've been rooting my Android phones and installing custom ROMs for nearly 10 years now but was not aware of microG, very cool.

Is this the end of privacy? Not sure about the 'might end' in the title. This is already out there. Can you put the rabbit back in the hat or is it now forever loose?

NewYorkTimes :- The Secretive Company That Might End Privacy as We Know It
A little-known start-up helps law enforcement match photos of unknown people to their online images — and “might lead to a dystopian future or something,” a backer says.
