Big Brother was built for the 21st century. Now technological capabilities have caught up with its desire to watch and record as much information as possible. Personal electronics have become so ubiquitous, that to track a person's movements, desires —indeed his very life— is accessible via a few keystrokes.
Your phone, your passport, your coupons are all leaking your personal information like sieves. And there appears to be no safe haven from the ever-watchful eye of Big Brother— your car is tagged, your shopping mall is keeping tabs on your movement, even your own home is no sanctuary from the perpetually ravenous maw of data mining operations. Could it be that "1984" is now?
