But look at how far non-connected technology has advanced, and how little of that is available for unfettered access for regular people. Smart phones are powerful computing devices, capable of some pretty impressive tasks, but they're crippled and locked down to the consumer, so people are dependent on the manufacturers for access to those capabilities, and they don't provide that unless they're getting something out of it.

I'm sure Elon Musk could get a pretty cool brain implant if he wants one, but everyone else is getting some malware-riddled influencing machine, just like paranoid schizophrenics have been warning us for centuries.
