Technology in 2015 - Humor

We expect that by the year 2015 there will be integrated network of systems sharing our personal data such as medical history, geographic details, family details, credit history etc. Imagine having a fully integrated ID card system wherein each individual has a unique ID number (similar to SSN in US or a PAN card, for instance). Any authorized person (or unauthorized for that matter!) can look up your entire kundli (from cradle to grave of not just you but anyone ever associated with you).

You got the picture? Ok, just for giggles, imagine this hypothetical conversation when John Smith phones Pizza Hut to place an order.

Operator: "Thank you for calling Pizza Hut. May I have your..."

Customer: "Yellow!, can I order.."

Operator: "Can I have your GIS ID (Global Individual Social ID) card number first, Sir?"

Customer: "It's he..., hold..........on......001-88986-1356102-049998-45-54610"

Operator: "OK... You're... Mr John Smith and you're calling from 17 MyPlace. Your home number is 322678893, your office 825076666 and your mobile is 105069798888. Is there any info update required, Sir?"

Customer: "Home! How did you get all my phone numbers?

Operator: "We are connected to the system, Sir"

Customer: "May I order your Seafood Pizza..."

Operator: "That's not a good idea Sir"

Customer: "How come?"

Operator: "According to your medical records, you have high blood pressure and even higher cholesterol level Sir"

Customer: "What?... What do you recommend then?"

Operator: "Try our Low Fat Pizza. You'll like it"

Customer: "How do you know for sure?"

Operator: "You borrowed a book entitled "Popular Dishes" from the National Library last week Sir"

Customer: "OK I give up... Give me three family size ones then, how much will that cost?"

Operator: "That should be enough for your family of 5, Sir. The total is $132.76"

Customer: "Can I pay by! Credit card?"

Operator: "I'm afraid you have to pay us cash, Sir. Your credit card is over the limit and you owe your bank $ 17,051.75 since October last year. That's not including the late payment charges on your housing loan, Sir.."

Customer: "I guess I have to run to the neighborhood ATM and withdraw some cash before your guy arrives"

Operator: "You can't Sir. Based on the records, you've reached your daily limit on machine withdrawal today"

Customer: "Never mind just send the pizzas, I'll have the cash ready. How long is it gonna take anyway?"

Operator: "About 45 minutes Sir, but if you can't wait you can always come and collect it on your Nano Car..."

Customer: " What!"

Operator: "According to the details in system ,you own a Nano car,...registration number GZ-05-AB-1107.."

Customer: " ????"

Operator: "Is there anything else Sir?"

Customer: "Nothing... By the way... Aren't you giving me that 3 free bottles of cola as advertised?"

Operator: "We normally would Sir, but based on your records you're also diabetic....... "

Customer: #$$^%&$@$% ^

Operator: "Better watch your language Sir.. Remember on 10th July this year you were convicted of using abusive language on a Nun...?"

Customer: ............( Faints ) !!!!!!

Fact or Fiction? We'll wait until 2015 to answer that!
