Intel pitches stalking smartphones

Super-snoop mobes want to know your every move

The Power of One Infographic

ERIC Intel CTO Justin Rattner wants your phone to follow your every move, know where you want to go and what you do when you get there and basically fling at you a non-stop stream of information relevant to what's going on in your life.

Rattner's second keynote at the European Research and Innovation Conference (ERIC) in Ireland was once more focused on Intel's vision of a "context-aware" future for technology, something the firm had been going on about at IDF in September as well – albeit in that case it was ultrabooks, not phones.

In many ways, the smartphone is a better fit than your laptop for context-awareness, given that it is a technology many people already consider an extension of themselves and couldn't live without.

This video, shown by Rattner at ERIC and uploaded to YouTube today at the request of The Register, unintentionally shows the potential creepiness of such a Big Brother overview of your life, as well as just how cool it all could be. ®
