Some investors and big technology companies are betting on a boom in wearable, computerized devices built around the growing power and slimming size of sensors that can detect body temperature, geographic location and voice commands of people on the go.

Why is facebook Home going to kill what you used to call privacy:
Picture: Facebook Home
Being a biggest fan of Mark Zuckberg, I was thrilled by knowing that facebook was going to go into the phones' business. This made tracking down this new gadgets from one of the biggest innovative companies of our era. Not surprisingly, the HTC phone has now a beautiful display( Facebook), and buy just opening the phone, you can access your photos, notifications, and many other Facebook's tools right away. But, one of the things which are now concerning HTC users, and future users of Facebook Home is user privacy. Does this means that privacy is dead? To find an answer I asked my tech experts mentors and friends.
What is Facebook Home:
Facebook Home is a user interface layer for Android smartphones developed by the social networking service Facebook. Designed to be a drop-in replacement for the existing home screen ("launcher") on an Android device, the software provides a replacement home screen that allows users to easily view and post content on Facebook along with launching apps, a replacement lock screen that displays notifications from Facebook and other apps, and an overlay which allows users to chat via Facebook ChatHeads or text messaging from any app.
What people are talking about its privacy:
I first asked my friend Noad about what he thinks; Noad is a Vet Doctor, and he has always been passionate about technology and the development of the african continent.He directly told me that he doesn't like Facebook Home because it tracks down every single position of the user. He said it kills privacy. He said that he does want to see someone always following him using a phone. I also asked him what he could implement as a change if he was the Lead manager of the business. He told me that he would just promote it; "it's all about money,"he said. I also asked my cofounder Ronak what he thought was going to be an impact; "It can start to correlate all of your relationships, all of the places you shop, all of the restaurants you dine in and other such data. The data from accelerometer inside your phone could tell it if you are walking, running or driving" Ronak said.
So what do you think about Facebook Home
