No one can tell what the future holds...
"You will be assimilated"
How we envisioned the future, in the past. Hmm...
So did the deceased have a voice in this when this was decided by the Amazon heads?
Like a tragic Shakespearean comedy.
...like a psychopath. Fancy that. ;-)
This is just too close to home...
Anyone else in the same boat?
Gene editing techniques (CRISPR) have allowed this young lady to recover from sickle cell disease, one year later.

"As the coronavirus outbreak spreads and causes a series of disruptions to the economic, educational, medical and civic life of our country, it is imperative that Americans stay connected,” FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai

What happens when neural networks contest with each other in a game of creating people that never existed? These neural networks are called generative adversarial networks. The website below is a demonstration of GANs. Refresh the page to see a different person who is computationally generated.
This Person Does Not Exist
Ring (owned by Amazon) is overhauling it's security for their devices. It's a start but it's not a final solution. This will evolve so take it with the proverbial grain of salt.
Security camera maker Ring is updating its service to improve account security and give more control when it comes to privacy. Once again, this is yet another update that makes the overall experience slightly better but the Amazon-owned company is still not doing enough to protect its users. First,....
PSA: NEVER EVER EVER GOOGLE A "COMPANY" FOLLOWED BY "TECH SUPPORT"! Chances are the first search result is typically a company that is ready to scam you by accessing your computer, steal personal data, and run you into identity theft issues.
Always visit the actual company's website, scroll to the bottom of their page and you will usually find a link that says "Contact Us".
Now excuse me, while I go help someone who didn't heed that advice and has potentially fallen victim to this "soft hack".
You can also swipe left to advance to the next page. 😉
Sometimes certain people forget that anything we post on social media is viewable by the masses... including law enforcement.
British police jumped on the social media bandwagon Tuesday by taking part in the viral Dolly Parton Challenge, creating memes of suspects wanted for a number of offenses.
China’s central bank is ready to test digital currency and put an end to paper money. In essence, they’re attempting to put an end to the US dollar’s world supremacy.
"We're right at the edge of a kind of gigantic technical change,"
~ Princeton University historian Harold James
Bitcoin promises users anonymity, but transactions using China's digital currency would be tracked by its central bank. Experts say it could someday rival the dollar in international payments.
"I've been saying for years that technology is taking us to a place where secrets will no longer be capable of being hidden. And facial recognition technology is only a sideshow in this process. As Yuval Noah Harari has pointed out, Artificial Intelligence will soon make lie detector tests positively antediluvian. As Harari phrases it, AI will soon know us better than we know ourselves. And given that "safety" is humankind's prime directive, we will not only not resist this new technology, we will welcome it. After all, many say "I have nothing to hide so go for it if I'm safer because of it."
The unintended consequences of this type of "progress" are impossible to foresee but I think it's likely that we humans are not yet ready to fully expose ourselves to ourselves. Though it would certainly eliminate lies and deceit and the hypocrisy which arises as a result. Until now, the instruction that we "Know Thyself" as carved into the wall of a Greek Temple has been aspirational. We may soon get there and it may not be pretty."
These comments are from an individual who’s read this article regarding Clearview. A facial recognition technology company with a database of 3 billion photos of people and an ability to identify your face in multiple instances against their database within seconds.
Currently the app is used by law enforcement and has successfully identified shoplifters, assaulters, murderers, cold case victims, and even good Samaritans who helped save people from being victimized.
Now investors want Clearview to release the app to the public. The company’s founder has yet to express full disagreement about its “evil” usage but acknowledges that he now possesses a very unique piece of technology. Imagine a disgruntled employee seeking his old boss, an ex-spouse looking to take revenge by finding his kids, organized crime groups looking to identify a police officer who did them wrong. Currently the recognition is 70% accurate.
This is the kind of stuff you can only find in Orwellian novels. If you’re into online privacy, it’s a must read. This could potentially be the beginning of the end of privacy (even if you’re not an active participant).
A little-known start-up helps law enforcement match photos of unknown people to their online images — and “might lead to a dystopian future or something,” a backer says.
Please don't let people perpetuate this hoax (again). It's like a bad rash you thought you took care of but it comes back with a vengeance.
A Facebook privacy hoax that has been plaguing the site for years is back, and users are falling for it all over again
Weight for it...
There are no windows at Apple’s corporate building because they’ve removed the Gates upon entering. 😝😝😝
She tried to “nail” down an excuse for not coming into work.
“my coworker called in (yet again) and said she had a nail on her tire that caused her to have a flat. i need everyone to stop what they’re doing and ZOOM IN TO THE NAIL IN THE PICTURE SHE SENT MY BOSS”
That pressure in your head may not be due to the flu...
Determined to follow through with your New Year’s resolutions, huh? Good for you!
PSA: The keyword is "backdating" or "pre-dating" and it can potentially be abused so just play it safe this year.
This is sound advice and should be considered when signing any legal or professional document. It could potentially save you some trouble down the road.

UGH! Looks like we’ve reached critical mass with Ring as 3500+ users have their personal info leaked, such as email logins, password, and what you named your Ring camera (ie, bedroom, playroom, office, etc).
“This gives a potential attacker access to view cameras in somebody’s home — that’s a real serious potential invasion of privacy right there.”
Dumpster divers can make easy coin by reselling on Amazon. Buyer beware.
