Smart Meters fitted to peoples homes exploded across Sacramento this week following a power surge. The meters, which spy on energy consumption are similar to the ones that the government is planning on fitting at ruinous expense to every home in Britain.

It’s unclear why the smart meters exploded, but Techno has never heard of a good old fashioned analog meter blowing up. Will the government roll back its £11 billion plan to plant a potential smart bomb in every house?

Dr Alexander Kogan, the app developer who originally harvested the Facebook data, said…

“I think what Cambridge Analytica has tried to sell is magic and made claims this is incredibly accurate and it tells you everything there is to tell about you. But I think the reality is it’s not that. If you sit down and you really work through the statistics and you think what does a correlation of point three means, those claims quickly fall apart. And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
