"so what's next??? cellphone with built-in air conditioner, or ice maker, or cellphone that can make money......would be nice..... :)"
...cellphone that can make money --> already done! didn't u read the news! :P

"Yay less privacy, more surveillance but more convenience!"
You have been assimilated! Your wallet now belongs to US! :P
It's good that technology is progressing, but I really don't want to be just one gigantic corporation (Google).
