4 Paragraphs

Article 1: AccuWeather was sharing its users data with a third party. AccuWeather should be more clear when asking the question able sharing locations. They are not telling people that a third party is involved in the laction sharing.

Article 2: For 1000 dollars anyone can buy an online ad to track your location. People could learn where you are going to coffee, a burglar can establish a sham company to find when you leave your house and a suspicious employer can see if your shopping during work. Individuals who purchased ads can see the type of apps you are using.

Microchips in Humans

3 Positives:
  1. Identification - ID’s, passports
  2. No more body mix-ups - 28,000 babies get mixed up in hospitals every year.
  3. Child Abductions - less child abductions because parents will always be able to track their child's location

I don’t feel this is a good idea, you are taking away the freedom of these people and leaving them able to be hacked. They lose their freedoms by always being able to be tracked and always having an eye on them almost like you don't trust them. You don’t know what other people will be able to access in your microchip, they could access thoughts, ID, credit cards, important information and private information.
