There is now a world-wide, massive database of our individual fingerprints. Everybody who uses I-pads, touch screens, etc, has a unique fingerprint. These easily identifiable fingerprints are analysed every time we touch our pads. Soon the C.I.F.A. (Central Identifiable Fingerprints Agency) will know exactly where you are and what you are doing.

Once your fingerprints are on this database, they will be trackable by powerful, high-resolution remote cameras - even if you're not using an I-Pad or touch screen. (After all, our uniquely identifiable fingerprints stay with us wherever we are).

In combination with Google Maps, CIFA agents will be able to zoom in on you and observe your every movement. This 'real-time' observer (or 'Peeping Tom') facility will soon be available to everyone else on the Internet.

Imagine being constantly monitored at close quarters by thousands of web-users. Imagine, too, all those weirdo extraverts trying to boost their 'hit'-rates. Imagine people closely observing you as you closely observe others.

Toilet breaks will never be the same again. Enjoy your 'private moments' while you still can.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
