Well, I’ve told you to take care when liberals and other shysters use the word “smart” to describe whatever it is they’re selling. “Smart” for them, bunky, not you. As in “Ooh, that smarts!”
(I am back from the bank–for now. Aunt Joan is dead, but the paperwork goes on forever. I wonder if I ought to take up hard liquor as a hobby.)
The latest is “smart clothes,” aka “Tommy Jeans Xplore” from Tommy Hilfiger, featuring “smart chip-embedded technology” that makes a sweatshirt sell for $90 to $99 (https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-44965150). People who wear this stuff are walking “brand ambassadors,” and thanks to the chip, the company will acquire “an unprecedented level of information on customers.” Yup, it’ll track you wherever you go.
And those who get the most wear out of the most items will win [trumpet fanfare!] Rewards from the Tommy Hilfiger Company!
But you ain’t seen nothin’ yet, O featherless bipeds! A new company’s in town, with newer and better smart clothes that are much smarter, and cost a lot more, than anything poor old Tommy Hilfiger ever dreamed of.
Smart Sweats by Mark O’ the Beast not only track your location, but also record your conversations, keep a record of anything you read or write, report on how you vote, and sign you up for Special Hospice Care if you don’t vote Democrat. A sweatshirt costs $666, but it’s worth every penny–would Satan lie to you?
