jfruh writes "Another CES has come and gone, and as usual the press has presented rather uncritically a list of super-cool gadgets that were unveiled at the show and that will make our world better. Let's leave aside the fact that many products show at CES never make it to market; Paul Roberts provides the pessimistic case on the big CES news, explaining how all these geegaws will strip away privacy, unleash an army of Clippys onto the world, and maybe even change human brains for the worse."
