Some Day There'll be an App for That

O'Reilly may have something about people becoming increasingly dependent on various devices nowadays.

‘Siri, I Need to Hide My Roommate': Murder Suspect Allegedly Asked iPhone For Help Hiding Body
Authorities say that a Florida college student murdered his roommate and used his iPhone’s Siri application to ask where he should hide the body.
Pedro Bravo is accused of killing Christian Aguilar in 2012 over a love triangle situation.
Authorities allege Bravo told the Siri application, “I need to hide my roommate," at about the same time Aguilar disappeared. His phone gave answers back that stated, "What kind of place are you looking for? Swamps. Reservoirs. Metal foundries. Dumps."~snip~
The fact that the bozo didn't realize that every time he uses the thing he leaves a digital foot print that the government can access shows just how technologically stunted some people are in spite of their dependence on it  I'll bet Siri knew that.
