Privacy tips for the future (from 'the past')

Parody video makes us realize how much privacy we've given up

Cool YouTuber "SquirrelMonkeyCom", which has posted a lot of the "What if X (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) was invented in the 'xxs ('80s, '90s, etc.)", has posted a new original video talking about "privacy in the future." Of course, the video was produced this year, but made to look as if it was done in the '90s (complete with the occasional garbled VHS lines).

It's a funny video that should make you laugh when you realize how much privacy we are giving up these days in the "modern world."
