In a world where technology and innovation are two major conceptions, the symbiosis between real and virtual has never been stronger. As proof, some of the technologies used exclusively to governments may be accessible, in whole or part.
More, these are new tools that are poised to influence and direct our lifestyles. Three articles from Wired Magazine discuss these themes through mixed views articulated by the "precursors" in terms of technological advances.
The first part signed by Jacob Ward, gives us an overview of the situation regarding the Geographic Information System and the controversial influence of virtual cards on user behavior. The second, written by Daniel Terdiman, describes the different design options for "pirated" software, arising from Google Map. The third and last part addresses the issues of advertising inherent in this software and the resulting derivatives, which are sometimes unintended.

[...] Used improperly, can have serious consequences. II. The impacts of GIS in decision making 1. The manipulation of information (Google map and derivatives) 1. The selectivity of information The information is geared to the programmer of the software, the user does not have access to all data but will only result for it by the software. The objectivity of the information is to highlight the rigor with which the programmer "required" information The bad publicity Google Map software stores geographic data. [...]
[...] In terms of safety Some GIS offer for each point on the globe a set of coordinates for GPS geotagging, which some observers, could be misused, especially for purposes of strikes or terrorist attacks. (See home of the Vice President of USA). Conclusion These articles highlight the next "double edge" of technological advances such provision of everyone. When developing this type of software, global data security is essential to avoid unpleasant excesses and manipulations. GIS technology tools are unusual, as they remain in an objective data transmission, not transmission and interpretation of data. [...]
[...] As proof, some technologies that were once exclusively reserved for governments may be accessible, in whole or part at all. Moreover, these are new tools that are going to influence and direct our lifestyles. Three articles from the magazine Wired approach these themes through mixed views articulated by the "precursors" in terms of technological advances. The first, signed Jacob Ward gives us an overview of the situation regarding the Geographic Information System and controversy in influencing e-cards on user behavior. [...]
[...] What, therefore, the risk of influence in terms of decision making related to the extension of GIS? i. GIS and their applications 1. Democratization of GIS A GIS is a set of geographic data obtained from satellite images and to draw-cards, which can now be transmitted via the web, mobile phones, GPS and maps . established to visualize accurately countries, cities and even neighborhoods and stores in them. The basic business space "top secret" government, this technology was then used by large companies for their strategic choices (e.g. [...]
