The password pill is an electronic pill that people take and there device with a password will unlock when they are close. a problem with the password pill is that when your device unlocks, any one can get on it. http://www.businessinsider.com...

Ok, this is my first debate on debaet.org and I hope it will be a good debate too. We should not the password pill because it can be an invasion of privacy,if you place your phone on a table and it unlocks, any one can take it and get on it.

Alright, I am going to stick to traditional format for debate.org and as this is your first debate this is how it usually is:
round 1. acceptance
round 2. Main argument
round 3. rebuttal or refuting the others statement
round 4.disproving rebuttal or presenting new evidence
round 5. if disproving rebuttal in 4 then final evidence and if new evidence in 4 then final rebuttal and conclusion.
Now to the debate:

Using a password pill is the start for something that would help anyone with one of the biggest problems in the world. Health. In the very source used to start this debate it says that it is originally just something to use to monitor your health and the data would be seen only by a doctor and yourself. This has several aspects of helpfulness;
1. In the source it talks about helping diabetics. No more shots to test blood sugar because the pill would tell you when your blood sugar was too high or low.
2. It could help in detecting cancer. If we could find it before it became too large than it could be removed or early kimo could be used.
3. Heart attacks could be forewarned of happening and so help in getting to paramedics as soon as possible.
4. Tell you when to take your medication and how much of it.
The pill is being expanded to be used in a password capacity. Aside from unlocking unwanted things it would have a certain radius of "unlocking". If someone gets on one of these devices then you have to be close enough to know about it. Having your phone unlocked on the table where your sitting is not much problem except for pesky siblings. It also has another aspect. Imagine your phone gets stolen. They can't unlock it unless they are within a certain radius of you and so the point of stealing is lost when you can't use it or only when within eyesight which is quite suspicious when you are looking at someone with phone identical to yours. As for people using the computer when it is being unlocked by you then it is YOUR responsibility to make sure because you are standing RIGHT THERE. If you can't tell that someone is using something of yours when you can see them doing it then that is your fault. To the invasion of privacy health wise it is a simple choice: your health and well being or privacy. If you want privacy, fine, but don't be angry when you find out you have a tumor. The whole use of the pill is beneficial to you as a convenience and a necessity.
Over to you Con!

I'm on your side for that. The problem with society now is, technology is advancing even more. And, even if I mainly support the ideal, there's still a lot of more policies that need to be taken account for when tackling with innovation. Policies that are imperative to use beforehand publishing a new invention. But, again, we live in a intrinsic cycle. People are stupid and will always get vastly attracted to ideas which seem neoteric, unaware of its irrelevance on the later side.
