Recently, we set up a complex web of cameras all around our house. It all started when I was researching things we could do with all our old, out of date phones we had lying around. Initially I thought I’d cash the phones in, but they are worth about two bucks — and that’s only if they were meticulously taken care of, with not a scratch or dent on them.
We are not the kind of people who lack scratches and dents on our persons, so you can imagine the condition of our slippery electronic devices. They were basically high-tech paperweights.
