OK this looks interesting but is also slightly disquieting at the same time. At first blush Now could be useful in drawing together information about your day however it's the underlying awareness and aggregation of what might otherwise be sensitive information about yourself that has potential for mischief or worse. Ah well with every advance comes the potential for misadventure or worse. What do others think?
