Mr. Sino, CVAC, King of Kings, Kingdom of God Sky Earth

The internet blogosphere has been a blaze with words like; hope, humanity, prosperity, freedom, and so many other catch phrases that work on the emotional side of the 'vulnerable' with reference to a single person that apparently holds the key to free humanity from the clutches of governments and the financial world leaders.

The person in the middle is apparently a "Mr. Sino" (illustrated above) or if you want the long version; "MR.A1.Sino.AS.S“2” .IR.Soegihartonotonegoro" who allegedly set up a trust called SWISSINDO(?) which holds the 'true' value of each being in monetary terms which is supposed to be given to every recipient who 'voluntarily' joins the CVAC (Creation Value Asset Center).

Corpau does not devote resources to internet scams as there is a wide variety of resources that deal with this topic, and provide far more comprehensive analysis and reports than can be done in one single post or article.

Mr. Sino is a self styled King of Kings, with absolutely NO ties to any legitimate Royalty of Indonesia, but rather is a centre of a very elaborate hoax preying on the vulnerability of the 'do gooders'.

One of the claims is that 'he' is a holder of approx 75 trillion kilograms of gold that is scattered all over the Indonesian archipelago.

Apparently he is tied in with the U.N. (United Nations) where a document purporting to hold the riches is attached below.

The document above literally has no meaning to it but rather 'gibberish', and is literally not worth the paper nor coloured ink used to print on it.

From Australia a few genuine, hard working, honest, and very articulate people have been conned into traveling to Indonesia from their own private funds, to a dead end destination that is full of empty promises.

Apple moves $9 billion profit from Australia to Irish tax havens according to reports

US technology giant Apple has moved almost $9 billion in untaxed profits to from its Australian operations to an Irish tax haven in the past 10 years, media reports say. 

Fairfax Media claims to have obtained a decade's worth of financial accounts for Apple Sales International, the Irish company at the centre of Apple's international tax arrangements.

The accounts reveal the mark-up Apple charges for intellectual property on its global products, The Australian Financial Review reports.

Last year, Apple reported pre-tax earnings in Australia of only $88.5 million after sending an estimated $2 billion from its Australian sales to Ireland via Singapore, where Apple negotiated a secret tax deal in 2009, it said.

Senator Xenophon said if reports are true, Apple is rotten to the core.

Apple Sales International has reported more than $US100 billion ($112 billion) of profits in the last five years, but its accounts indicate it's paid less than 50 cents in tax on every $1000 of income, the AFR said.

The report comes after last month's Group of 20 finance ministers meeting decided that by November the world's top economies would start to deliver effective and practical measures to counter tax avoidance.

G20 members expect to start automatically exchanging information on tax matters from 2015.

Independent senator Nick Xenophon said the report showed Apple was “rotten” and the government must act.

“When it comes to paying tax, it seems that this apple is rotten to the core,” Senator Xenophon told reporters in Canberra on Thursday.

“This, if true, is a scandal.” Apple is being contacted for comment.

Governments allow companies to carry out 'fraud' without any legal repercussion whatsoever.

Another action that tells the masses corporate fraud is rife with the full support of the 'authorities'.

An action that if it were implemented by the general populous would result in criminal charges.

Part of the globalisation policy structure set up by governments so that the corporates can reign supreme.

Queensland Government to axe 8c-per-kWh solar feed-in tariff to cut electricity costs

The Path to Prosperity panel looks at the great potential for solar and wind power, and analyses community fears about wind in particular.

THOUSANDS of southeast Queensland solar households will lose their guaranteed 8c feed-in tariff and will have to negotiate directly with retailers over a price for the energy they produce. 

Energy Minister Mark McArdle will today unveil a significant overhaul of feed-in tariffs, saving other energy users millions of dollars on power bills. 

Opinion: Burning issue of inequity
Queensland households’ solar bill shock
Mr McArdle said removing the cost of purchasing the high-priced energy produced by these solar households would put downward pressure on all electricity bills.

Solar advocates have today slammed the decision to scrap the 8c feed-in tariff.

Lindsay Soutar, the national director of Solar Citizens, said it would be difficult for households with solar to negotiate fair deals with retailers.

“There are 40,000 homes that are about to lose the already too small financial return they receive from providing clean energy back into the grid,” she said

“And there are thousands of families in Queensland who want to make the move to solar who will now be forced to negotiate directly with retailers for any sort of financial return.

“This is incredibly unfair. It is obvious that it will be difficult for individual households to get a good deal from their power company.

The state government has been accused of ignoring warnings about the legal risks associated with cutting the solar power scheme.

“They simply don’t have the negotiating power. When retailers set the rules, solar owners lose.”

The 284,090 households that receive the 44c tariff will not be affected, with the State Government keeping its commitment to continue paying the more generous amount to those who adopted solar before the scheme was closed.

The move will switch the responsibility for paying for rooftop solar power from government-owned distributors to retailers. 

It will affect almost 40,000 households throughout southeast Queensland that currently receive 8c per kilowatt hour for the energy produced by their rooftop solar panels.

Mr McArdle last night told The Courier-Mail that the 8c tariff would have added an extra $110 million to all power bills over six years, had it continued.

Households our fourth biggest power generator
How much you’re subsidising your solar neighbour
Retailers currently get this power for free from distributors and pay solar customers up to 10c per kilowatt hour extra for their power — meaning some customers get up to 18c.

“At the moment what happens is that … the feed-in tariff that is paid under the 8c is recovered by the networks and then passed through to Queenslanders in their power bills,” Mr McArdle said.

“Placing it on to the retailers will mean there is no pass-through back to consumers who are not using solar.”
From July 1, solar households in the Energex distribution network will not get a regulated rate for their energy and must negotiate with retailers. A new regulated rate will be set for the 10,000 solar households on the 8c feed-in tariff in the Ergon Energy area, where there is currently no competition.

Mr McArdle said removing the 8c feed-in tariff in the southeast would foster competition ahead of the removal of regulated prices in July 2015.

“I don’t think (retailers) will abandon solar customers, because paying the feed-in tariff is part of their market strategy to attract customers to their contracts,” he said.

“Customers can then start to play retailers off against each other to get a better deal, and we may well find that the feed-in tariff increases with competition.’’

Supreme Court to determine whether states can execute ‘mentally retarded’ prisoners

The US Supreme Court has indicated that it will consider requiring state authorities to assess more than just a death row convict’s intelligence score when evaluating whether an inmate is eligible to be executed.

Judges heard arguments on Monday about how law enforcement officials in Florida and a number of other states allow a person to be executed if their IQ is barely higher than 70, the traditional barrier that separates the general population and those with cognitive disability. Twelve years ago, the Supreme Court prohibited the execution of the mentally disabled, yet the justices at that time left it up to individual states to determine how they define “mentally retarded.”

Lawyers for Freddie Hall argued that their client should not be executed in Florida because he has spent his life struggling with a mental disability. The attorneys say that lower courts have sided with Hall but top authorities refuse to stop his execution. Hall has spent nearly four decades on death row after he killed a pregnant 21-year-old woman in 1978.

Under Florida law, an inmate with an IQ higher than 71 is not mentally retarded and can be put to death. However, five court justices argued that the rule does not account for the IQ test’s margin of error, which can hypothetically skew a test result enough to send someone who may not be eligible into the death chamber.

Your rule prevents us from getting a better understanding of whether the IQ score is accurate or not,” Justice Anthony Kennedy told Florida Solicitor General Allen Winsor, who argued that there is no need to loosen the parameters around a score of 70.

Winsor advised the court not to diverge from the existing rule because state law has determined “they are not mentally retarded if they don’t have an IQ score of 70 or below.” He added that if the 70 point cutoff is forsaken, twice the number of inmates on death row could claim they are disabled.

But some of them may actually be mentally retarded,” replied Justice Elena Kagan, as quoted by the Associated Press.

Freddie Hall has consistently scored above 70 on his IQ tests but his representation says there is sufficient proof that the inmate is in fact disabled. One judge who previously ruled on the case wrote that Hall “had been mentally retarded his entire life,” with multiple psychiatrists and other professionals agreeing. School records dating from the 1950s also make it clear that Hall’s teachers considered him to be “mentally retarded,” the accepted term for a mental disability at the time.

The predictable consequence of Florida’s rule is that persons with mental retardation will be executed,” Eric Pinkard, one of Hall’s lawyers from Florida’s Capital Collateral Regional Counsel, wrote in a brief to the justices. “Without this Court’s intervention that will happen here…The evidence is overwhelming that Freddie Lee Hall has mental retardation.”

Hall was convicted of kidnapping and murdering a young woman as she left a Florida grocery store in 1978. He was also convicted of killing a sheriff’s deputy. While Hall’s guilt is not for the court to determine, Justice Antonin Scalia wondered if the sheer brutality of Hall’s crimes is evidence of ample cognitive function.
Could the state show that in refutation of his retardation evidence?” Scalia said, adding that Hall had not complained of any metal disability during his first decade in prison.

Some observers expect that Scalia will be the decisive vote on the matter. The conservative judge also seemed to doubt the assertions of medical professionals, the American Psychiatric Association in particular.
They change their mind, counsel,” he said. “This APA is the same organization that once said that homosexuality was a mental disability and now says it’s perfectly normal.”

Justice Sonia Sotomayor admitted a “line has to be drawn somewhere,” with psychiatrists suggesting that a 76-score is high enough to be accurate while remaining clear of the inherent margin of error. Mississippi and Oklahoma already adhere to that standard, whereas Texas – the state which executes the most inmates – does not follow a strict IQ guideline.

In 2012, Texas authorities executed Marvin Wilson, a 54-year-old convicted of murder, despite a 2004 psychological exam on which he scored a 61. The Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from Wilson’s attorneys, paving the way for his execution.

A decision in Hall v. Florida is expected to come no later than June.

According to a study, around 70% of Americans don't know the Sun is a star. Americans don't lead the world in anything, especially not in science, math or the like, except the highest number of incarcerated people per capita. If the "leaders of the free world" can't teach the next generation basic science, they'll have to execute the naughty ones if they get into trouble.

Irritable Farmer 04.03.2014 16:28

Let the axe fall! At least ninety-percent of the U.S. Congress is guilty of treason, a punishment of execution should be their just reward. UNFORTUNATELY, of those congressional criminals, all of them are mentally retarded - a blow to American justice for sure.

Sheriff's Office Exposed Part 1

In Australia, the sheriff plays a major part in debt collection for various so called 'government' bodies, many of which function illegitimately / unlawfully, with real consequences of people being incarcerated for significant periods of time for the victimless crimes they allegedly committed.

The Victorian Department of Justice


claims on its home page that:

"Sheriff's officers take action against people who do not comply with their debt-related court orders."

What the general populous does not know:

  • The letter that accompanies the sheriff is made out to your ESTATE NAME e.g. JOHN CITIZEN (Capitalised) and not YOU as a person* John Citizen. 

The following brochure (from the Department of Justice) is not entirely 'correct' as it entices you to do 'business' with the 'sheriff' and NOT what you can actually do, what your true rights are or even the questions you should ask the sheriff before proceeding.

 Front page of brochure:

 Back page of brochure:

Corpau is in possession of information just recently obtained in relation to the Sheriff's Office exposing the corrupt dealing of the office, which is well known internally within the business.

The Sheriff's Office of Victoria has the ABN of 32 790 228 959

 *Person - Black's Law Dictionary 6th Edition, pg. 791, defines 'person' as follows:

"In general usage, a human being (i.e. natural person), though by statute term may include labor organizations, partnerships, associations, corporations, legal representatives, trustees, trustees in bankruptcy, or receivers."

Sir Harry Gibbs Chief Justice of the High Court Australia comments on the Constitution

The following document is from the Chief Justice of the High Court Australia written to a Mr. John Wilson commenting on the Constitution.

Sir Harry Talbot Gibbs, GCMG, AC, KBE, QC (17 February 1917 - 25 June 2005) was Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia from 1981 to 1987 after serving as a member of the High Court between 1970 and 1981.

He was known as one of Australia's leading federalist judges although he presided over the High Court when decisions such as Koowarta v Bjelke-Petersen in 1982 and Commonwealth v Tasmania expanded the powers of the Commonwealth at the expense of the states.

Gibbs dissented from the majority verdict in both cases. Read Profile Wikipedia.

Your birth certificate was made into a bond, its worth billions!

The United States' version:

Your Birth Certificate Was Made Into a Bond...it's Worth Billions!
August 2, 2013

Original post here.

Who knew, it says "American Bank Note Company" right there on our birth certificates!? I'm connecting so many dots today I think my head might start spinning around and puking green vomit, like the little girl in the Exorcist. Ok I'm sorry, that's gross. But that's how disturbing this stuff is. This type of awareness should not leave the reader feeling powerless, but em-powered. The reason this has gone on for so long is a direct result of our collective ignorance. I realize this stuff is not easy to believe and even harder to understand, especially to the newly awakened, and even more so to the still asleep. This is a quote I forced myself to memorize for this very reason:"A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic." – Dresden James

When the UNITED STATES declared bankruptcy, pledged all Americans as collateral against the national debt, and confiscated all gold, eliminating the means by which you could pay, it also assumed legal responsibility for providing a new way for you to pay, and it did that by providing what is known as the Exemption, an exemption from having to pay for anything. In practical terms, though, this meant giving each American something to pay with, and that \"something\" is your credit.

Your value to society was then and still is calculated using actuarial tables and at birth, bonds equal to this \"average value\" are created. I understand that this is currently between one and two million dollars. These bonds are collateralized by your birth certificate which becomes a negotiable instrument. The bonds are hypothecated, traded until their value is unlimited for all intents and purposes, and all that credit created is technically and rightfully yours. In point of fact, you should be able to go into any store in America and buy anything and everything in sight, telling the clerk to charge it to your Exemption account, which is identified by a nine-digit number that you will recognize as your Social Security number without the dashes. It is your EIN, which stands for Exemption Identification Number.

Is it starting to make sense now? Why it's not too far fetched to imagine the day when you will be able to walk confidently into your bank to legally, lawfully and ethically deposit some of YOUR value into your account? Why should we not be able to cash out a few billion dollars that we have created, backed by our labour, only to be stolen from us by the very people who claim to represent OUR collective best interests? The whole concept of "energy harvesting" is starting to make a whole lot more sense now, isn't it? 

More about the Strawman in this article: 

"The birth certificate created a FICTION (the name of the baby in upper case letters). The state/ province sells the birth certificate to the Commerce Department of the corporations of USA, which in turn places a bond on the birth certificate thereby making it a negotiable instrument, and placing the fiction, called a STRAWMAN, into the warehouse of the corporations of USA. Representation for the created fiction was given to the BAR (British Accredited Registry/Regency), owned and operated by the Crown, for the purpose of contracting the fiction (which most of us think is ourselves) into a third party action. Do not underestimate the power behind this trick. It is to con us into contracting with the feds so that they can ‘legally’ confiscate our property. All these contracts have only our signatures on them because corporate fictions cannot contract (only natural beings have the right to contract – and the right not to contract). Because there is no full disclosure – we are never told that we have just signed away what we believe to be our property – these contracts are fraudulent, and hence, we are still the lawful owner and the profit earned by the feds from selling securities (our property) belongs to us and must go into a fund for our benefit, otherwise it would be fraud. Not wanting to be charged with fraud, the feds had to create a remedy for us ... and hope we wouldn’t discover it."

For even a deeper understand of the Birth Certificate (registration) process click here. 

"The best example of the effects of registration is the birth certificate. A bankrupt entity – city, state/ province, country – cannot operate in commerce. So how do they manage? Since USA has been bankrupt for decades, having no substance such as gold and silver to back it, the only asset it has are men and women and our labour. We are the collateral for the interest on the loan of the World Bank. Each of us is registered, via the application for a birth certificate. The Treasury issues a bond on the birth certificate and the bond is sold at a securities exchange and bought by the Federal Reserve Bank which then uses it as collateral to issue bank notes. The bond is held in trust for the Feds at the Depository Trust Corporation. We are the surety on said bonds. Our labour/energy is then payable at some future date. Hence we become the ‘transmitting utility’ for the transmission of energy. The United States Government, in order to provide necessary goods and services, created a commercial bond (promissory note), by pledging the property, labour, life and body of its citizens, as payment for the debt (bankruptcy). This commercial bond made chattel (property) out of us all. We became nothing more than ‘human resources’ and collateral for the debt. This was without our knowledge and/or our consent, via the filing (registration) of our birth certificates. When mums apply for a birth certificate, the application is registered. The legal title of her baby is then transferred from mum to the State. Mum is left with equitable title of her baby whom she can use for a fee – a ‘use tax’ – and since the property does not belong to her, she has to treat it in the manner which the owner wants."

UPDATE AUG 3 5:22 pacific. New info to add:

The Certificate Of Registration of Live Birth is By Banking Definition Termed “A Certificated Security” The application they made was known as “an application for a live birth certificate” and what issued from this application was known as a “birth certificate.”
…the ‘company’, the “United States” kept the original application and gave your parents a copy of a birth certificate.
There is no real gain, therefore no income, therefore no income tax.
This created what is known as a “foreign situs trust account”.

Also when we filled out the Form SS-5 we ‘allowed’ the ‘company’ access to our account, our check book as it were, the pre-paid account that was set-up when our birth certificate issued. We gave them permission as signers to write checks on our account, and they do all the time. Keep in mind, this is the same account the bankers fractionalized and created huge, almost unlimited sums of “money”, and we became ‘co-business partners’, with the ‘company’. They are able to access and use our pre-paid account, for whatever they deem necessary.

…the ‘company’ then took the application and pledged your future labor as a guarantee for payment to the bankers, also known as the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The bankers gave the company a credit for your application against the amount that the company owed the bankers, which at the time of your birth, was worth close to 1 million dollars. This transaction is what is referred to as a “money of account” transaction, as no real money changed hands. It was simply an accounting entry against the debt owed to the bankers, by the company. 

The bankers then took the [your] application, and used fractional banking lending. It is the birth certificate that is proof that an application was submitted. It is the application that is the real negotiable instrument and the birth certificate proves there is a negotiable instrument being used in commerce -- to borrow money.
HUH? What is that you say?
#8230; fractional banking If a [your] birth certificate is worth, say, 1 million, the bank can loan that same 1 million out as many as 9 times, thus making the [your] birth certificate worth 9 million; and it keeps going, going and going.

Crimes Act 1914 - The original document

Most Australians should be aware that trespassing is against the law.

Trespassing against:

  • a person
  • to goods
  • to land

is illegal.

The general populous is reminded of this fact on [government] properties as shown in illustration below:

On the proviso that the Crimes Act is factually valid, the trespassing law also applies to sheriffs (bailiffs), police (except under certain circumstances), and other 'persons'.

The following document is the original Crimes Act of 1914.

It is under this Act that one is punished.

Civic Compliance Victoria letter from the Attorney General

The following document is a letter from the Attorney General of Victoria, ROBERT CLARK (MP) from 29 August 2011, commenting on Infringement Notices and Civic Compliance Victoria.

The document is as follows:

ALL Victorians should know the above document and also be aware of the article:

Civic Compliant Victoria Infringement Notice is a Fine - is void and Illegal


Civic Compliant Victoria Infringement Notice is a Fine - is void and Illegal

The following is a brief article providing evidence that an infringement notice issued under the Infringements Act 2006 VIC is a fine, and as currently issued by Civic Compliance Victoria (and others) is illegal and void.
Section 3 of the Infringements Act 2006 VIC [1] states:
fine means an infringement penalty and any prescribed costs and includes any fee payable under section 81;
infringement penalty means the amount stated in an infringement notice as payable in respect of the infringement offence to which the notice relates;
infringement notice means a notice in respect of an infringement offence served or to be served in accordance with Part 2;
infringement offence means an offence which may be the subject of an infringement notice under-
(a)  any Act or statutory rule; or
(b)  any local law; or
(ba) a by-law made under section 171 of the Water Act 1989 or a by-law made under a prescribed Act; or
(c)  any Commonwealth Act or any Act of another State or Territory or any subordinate instrument under 
such an Act that applies as a law of Victoria; infringement offender means a person who has been arrested under one or more infringement warrants...
Infringement notice is a fine
Applying logical relationships between these terms a fine is an infringement penalty, and an infringement penalty is a demand for payment contained on an infringement notice (in relation to an infringement offence). In other words, one may interpret this as saying that an infringement notice is a fine.
When the State Attorney-General, Robert Clark was asked if an infringement notice sent by Civic Compliance Victoria was a fine, he responded by stating, "An infringement notice generated and posted by Civic Compliance Victoria (CCV) is a fine". Hence, the Attorney-General, a Minister of the Crown, has stated that an infringement notice (sent by CCV) is a fine. [2]
Natural justice and your birth rights
It is vital that every Victorian (and all people of the Commonwealth) are aware that fines can only be ordered by a constitutionally valid court as defined by the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 - following a lawful conviction. This procedural requirement is well documented in the Imperial Acts Application Act 1980 VIC [3] which states:
[1688] I William and Mary Sess. II (Bill of Rights) c. II
12. And several grants and promises made of fines and forfeitures, before any conviction or judgement against the persons, upon whom the same were to be levied.
All which are utterly and directly contrary to the known laws and statutes, and freedom of this realm:
12. That all grants and promises of fines and forfeitures of particular persons before conviction, are illegal and void.
All people of the Commonwealth have the right to due process, without it then they are denied natural justice. This has been the case in the British realm since 1215 as stated in Clause 39 of the Magna Carta [4] (note that this is a translation from the original copy):
39. Guarantee of judgment by one’s peers and of proceedings according to the “law of the land.” No freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or disseised, or outlawed, or banished, or any ways destroyed, nor will we pass upon him, nor will we send upon him, unless by the lawful judgment of his peers, or by the law of the land.
This doctrine is enshrined in Magna Carta 1297, Petition of Right 1627 and Habaes Corpus 1640 as published in the Imperial Acts Application Act 1980 VIC [3]:
Division 3-Justice and liberty
[1297] 25 Edward I (Magna Carta) c. XXIX
No freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his freehold, or liberties or free customs, or be outlawed or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will we pass upon him, nor condemn him, but by lawful judgement of his peers, or by the law of the land. We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either justice or right.
[1627] 3 Charles I (Petition of Right) c. I
3. And where also by the statute called, The great charter of the liberties of England, it is declared and enacted, That no freeman may be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his freehold or liberties or his free customs, or be outlawed or exiled, or in manner destroyed, but by the lawful judgement of his peers, or by the law of the land.
Division 2-Habeas corpus [1640] 16 Charles I c. X
An Act for the regulating of the privy council, and for taking away the court commonly called the star-chamber. Whereas by the great charter many times confirmed in parliament, it is enacted, That no freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or disseised of his freehold or liberties or free customs, or be outlawed or exiled or otherwise destroyed, and that the King will not pass upon him, or condemn him; but by lawful judgement of his peers, or by the law of the land...
Quite simply, as presented, any person or entity issuing fines before a lawful conviction is breaking the law. It appears that if you receive an infringement notice then you are a victim of crime.
Two questions to ask after receiving your next notice
Next time you receive an infringement notice from Civic Compliance Victoria, you are invited to contact CCV and ask two very simple questions:
  1. What is an infringement notice? (Is it a fine?)
  2. Who sent the infringement notice? (What is their ABN/ACN?)
The former question will provide admission (confession) that the infringement notice is a fine (in addition to the admission provided by the Attorney-General). The latter question will provide evidence of who you are actually dealing with, as Civic Compliance Victoria is merely a trade mark; no entity of that name exists.

Promise and peril as wireless companies connect everything

 Samsung unveiled the latest version of its Gear smartwatch at Mobile  World Congress on Monday. In this latest update, the watch has dropped  Android in favor of the Tizen operating system, which Samsung is  developing.
WE’RE in the beginning of a world in which everything is connected to the internet and with one another, while powerful yet relatively cheap computers analyse all that data for ways to improve lives. 

Toothbrushes tell your mirror to remind you to floss. Basketball jerseys detect impending heart failure and call the ambulance for you.

At least that’s the vision presented this past week at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, Spain. The four-day conference highlighted what the tech industry has loosely termed “the internet of things.”

Some of that wisdom is already available or promised by the end of the year.

Fitness devices from Sony and Samsung connect with your smartphones to provide digital records of your daily lives. French start-up Cityzen Sciences has embedded fabric with heart-rate and other sensors to track your physical activities.

Internet-connected toothbrushes are coming from Procter and Gamble’s Oral-B business and from another French start-up, Kolibree. The mirror part is still a prototype, but Oral-B’s smartphone app does tell you to floss.

Car makers are building in smarter navigation and other hands-free services, while IBM and AT & T are jointly equipping cities with sensors and computers for parking meters, traffic lights and water systems to all communicate.

Internet-connected products represent a growth opportunity for wireless carriers, as the smartphone business slows down in developed markets because most people already have service.

With the technological foundations here, the bigger challenge is getting people, businesses and municipalities to see the potential. Then there are security and privacy concerns — health insurance companies would love access to your fitness data to set premiums.

At a more basic level, these systems have to figure out a way to talk the same language. You might buy your phone from Apple, your TV from Sony and your refrigerator for Samsung. It would be awful to get left out because you aren’t loyal to a single company. Plus, the smartest engineers in computing aren’t necessarily the best in clothing and construction.

Expect companies to work together to set standards, much the way academic and military researchers created a common language decades ago for disparate computer networks to communicate, forming the internet. Gadget makers are starting to build APIs — interfaces for other systems to pull and understand data.

Building everything is too much for a single company, yet “they want all this stuff to work together,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, a backer of the Tizen project for connecting watches, cars and more. Samsung’s new fitness watches will use Tizen, and tools have been built to talk with Samsung’s Android phones.

At the wireless show last week, Zelitron, a Greek subsidiary of Vodafone, showed how retailers can keep track of refrigerators used to dispense bottled drinks. The system tracks temperatures and inventory, and knows if a fridge is inadvertently unplugged.

Meanwhile, Cityzen hired athletes to demonstrate its connected fabric by playing basketball. Data get sent to a smartphone app using Bluetooth wireless technology.

Gilbert Reveillon, international managing director for Cityzen, said he’s had interest from a UK car insurance company and Chinese hospitals. Health data can tell you whether you’re fit to drive and can call paramedics in an emergency.

Some customers might worry about security, given recent breaches compromising credit and debit card numbers at Target and other major retailers.

Determined hackers seem to constantly find loopholes. Imagine someone spying on you remotely through security cameras in your home or tricking your home security system into believing your car is approaching, so it opens your garage door automatically.

AT & T emphasises that it uses encryption and other safeguards for its connected services, which include security monitoring and energy-efficiency controls in homes. Glenn Lurie, AT & T’s president of emerging enterprises and partnerships, said the US wireless carrier goes through extensive security certification and exceeds industry recommendations.

Reveillon said any data sharing by Cityzen will be in aggregate form, with users’ identities removed. He said individual users could decide to share more, but that would be up to them. He said French regulators are quite strict on that.

But US regulation isn’t, and a government subpoena is typically enough to override any promises of privacy. Once the information is available, privacy advocates say, it’s tempting to find other uses for it.
Jonathan Zittrain, a law professor at Harvard University, said it’s difficult for people to say no when presented with immediate benefits because any potential problems are vague and years away.

“Information seems harmless and trivial at the moment, but can be recorded forever and can be combined with other data,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve come to terms with that yet.”

The quote from the corporate media "Information seems harmless and trivial at the moment..." is not truly accurate.

If this was the case then it could be a good time to collect 'information' on all politicians, lawmakers and the people that control societies, store that information and 'publish' it at a later date, as it is 'harmless'.

Why are governments chasing Julian Assange or Edward Snowden for the 'information' they collected and published?

Make NO mistake, the information collected and stored, WILL be used at a later date against you, and NOT for your 'benefit'.

Why are governments spending billions of dollars annually to collect and store 'trivial information'?

The catch phrase 'for you benefit' is wearing a bit thin.
