I suspect the guy whose life was saved by his apple watch would disagree with you.

I think people should just be more realistic about what they want and what they don't want their technology to do for them. Then they need to adhere to those perimeters themselves rather than expecting someone else to do it for them. Like pretty much everything else in life.

and I suspect we can all cherry pick.

Call me old fashioned, but I have a basic, realistic expectation that when I purchase an electronic of some kind, I can safely rely on my television to broadcast an image and sound to either entertain or inform me....and for my phone or laptop to either make a call for me or bring up something I'm looking for. While I can't speak for anyone else's expectation, mine would always include my right to privacy rather than some perv or government agency either listening to my conversation or playing the part of an intrusive and illegal voyeur violating my rights. I find those expectations wholly realistic unless they start pasting a voyeur warning label on them like cigarettes do for health warnings.
