Keeping Track Of You As You Shop

I never stop shaking my head in amazement at technology – what it can do and how it’s used. You’re being tracked all the time – where you go, how much time you spend there. Security and surveillance cameras are everywhere. You could walk a short distance down a city street and be seen by a dozen cameras on buildings, homes and even cars.
