I bet Emma Watson really wishes she had Hermione’s magic now.

Watson stars in the new sci-fi thriller The Circle, based on Dave Egger’s bestseller.

It follows a young woman who scores a job at a large tech company getting personal info for the web.

One of the companies gadgets – SeeChange, a portable camera that lets you follow everyone and see what they are doing at literally all times.

With the new product, you’re constantly being watched.

Even Tom Hanks’ character explains, “Knowing is good, but knowing everything is better.”

If you weren’t scared of social media and your gadgets spying on you then, you will be now.

I guess it’s also important to note phones are pretty much tracking us as we speak so, is this movie such a stretch? Maybe the thriller is our actual reality?
