SO351 Grantham University Privacy Invasion Discussion

SMART phones, computers and televisions, Alexa, Google Home, new “voices” for Siri….these are just a few examples of technology devices that even 10 years ago individuals would not even recognize the “name/concept”, much less utilize on a regular basis. While these advances can be helpful within our daily lives, at what or whose expense should we be concerned with the downfalls associated with these advances? Please respond to each of the following questions.

Question A

Read the article within our textbook on pages 116-117, “Own a Vizio Smart TV? It’s Watching You” (Angwin, J. 2015). Are you concerned with your privacy being violated after reading the information shared within this article? Do you believe this is valid information? Why or why not?

Question B

Please share an experience you, or someone close to you (i.e. relative, friend, co-worker) has experienced in which his/her privacy has been violated through the utilization of technology. What would you do differently NOW, or recommend to others in order to avoid that situation and ensure one’s privacy is protected?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
