Amazon says its facial recognition systems can now detect fear. What a fantastic development for the police state!
Amazon’s facial recognition systems can now detect fear! Hey! Wee! I can’t possibly imagine this shit being used for ill. I mean, right? *Infinitely sarcastic wink*
This shit makes me think of that famous William Gibson quote, “the future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.” I mean, this is something straight out of one of his fucking novels. I love it. A 70 year-old fucking Tapiei fengshui master who cruises for Pokemon on a tricked-out bicycle.
Yelp senses a fucking phenomenon. Yelp has seized this fucking phenomenon, adding an ability to sort restaurants by Pokéstops.
Nothing is going to scream post-apocalyptic RobotWasteland in a decade or so like your RobotPizzadeliveryMachine shooting you with its self-made laser cannon to kick off Their insurgency. I mean right?
Pretty dope development coming out of Camp Amazon. The company’s Prime service is allowing users now to download television shows and movies on its Amazon Video app. That means them long-ass flights will be more bearable through media-based buoying. No wireless connection? No problem. Shitty wireless connection? Don’t even fuck with it.
Sony’s put a pseudo-release date on their entry in the Johnny Mnemonic sweepstakes. The son of a bitch will be dropping in the first quarter of the year next.
…because of course. Nice to see Apple joining Google in the race to awaken our Corporobotic Overlords.
Listen. I fuck with Pepsi Cola Corporation hard. I mean, sometimes I say, “oh I got blood in my DIET DEW STREAM”, and then fucking hate myself for my lame jokes. But I swear! I swear to Zeus and Aphrodite if I got a Pepsi ad in the middle of rewatching Guardians for Galaxy for the Nth time I would frisbee that fucking TV off the first drunken, stumbling neighbor I could find.
I don’t know much about this Nielsen fucker. I just know he/she/it/entity/corporation seems pretty fucking backwards when it comes to judging a show’s popularity. So I’m glad Leslie Nielsen or whatever is finally fucking considering our Netflix habits, too. Measure this shit, Leslie. Save my shows. Get smart.
Asteroid Miners? FUCK YEAH. Space telescope? FUCK YEAH. YEAH! DRINK DEEP THE FUTURO-SPACE SALVE. Maybe humanity isn’t doomed! Or maybe this is just another form of humanity dooming itself through private enterprise. Depends on your perspective, ideology, and philosophical underpinnings. I suppose.
