According to the contract, the TSA paid $336,413.59 for an app that randomly displays either an arrow pointing to the left or an arrow pointing to the right.
 
Shortly after Burke shared this information, TIME Magazine’s Pratheek Rebala found several other payments relating to the contract which totaled an unbelievable $1,444,315. There’s a chance that some of that money went to pay for the actual hardware itself, but nevertheless, it’s a massive sum.

I did not post this message in order to show corruption.

The idea was to show how rotten are professions that supposedly creates the future.

 

Programmers are much worse than religious fanatics. They consider themselves god-like, when others are idiots who can be fooled without any pity.

Now we see that all smart gadgets are designed for one purpose - to track people and collect all possible information about them.

And the next step is to control them. 

 

"Moscow has introduced a digital tracking system to enforce a coronavirus lockdown.
Muscovites and residents of the Moscow region -- anybody 14 years old or above -- must download a QR code if they want to move around their city. By registering on a government website or downloading an app on their smartphones, citizens can declare a route and purpose in advance; they then receive a QR code that can be checked by the authorities."
 
Sounds like fun ?
