@jpmens The other side of the story is that we're moving towards a service-market.
You don't want to own a lightbulb. You want light. You don't want to own a Tesla. You want comfortable transportation.
In that light, "renting a service" makes sense. And then it makes sense that the provider is the owner (not you), and remotely fixes stuff.
@berkes yes, you will. Same with the “rental” car: the operator will always want to know where it is, how fast it’s driving, and whether you’re applying the brakes carefully or not. Oh, and they’ll also want to ensure that you cannot drive into particular geographical areas.
Privacy is not an absolute, binary thing.
It's not even a fixed spectrum of more, or less privacy. It's a dynamic, context-based, time-affected thing.
You don't need the same privacy in a tent, on a festival, as you do at your psych.
Privacy is not 'dead', it's still up to you how much you want, and where you think it is important enough to exchange for services or free goodies.
