    hmm, Apple does not have anything close to the vast data backend, advanced/futuristic disparate tech projects and Pentagon contracts as Google, so I guess.

    when you put all of Google's pieces and projects together its fuckign scary, and there must be tons of shit that is top secret too.

    I'm looking at the military aspect of it. A mechanized military would be awesome. Think Land Drones. :evil:

    What's the old saying? "The only thing saving us from the bureaucracy is the inefficiency."

    If our cops become hyper-efficient robots, man, can you imagine? I guess more serious crimes would decline but what about the minor shit? Jaywalking? Speeding? Spitting on the sidewalk?

    That stuff is illegal, of course, and it's not very nice to do, of course, but do we reallllly want the kind of hyper-efficiency that keeps us all hyper-vigilant about being watched every moment in public?

    Maybe it would be nice but it's very difficult to trust the government on these things. Ask the Indians.

    Funny you should mention that..

    Police officers in Minneapolis handed a man a $115 ticket for spitting on a snow-covered sidewalk Monday as he was walked with a group of friends to grab a pizza, USA Today reported. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/12/0...icket-after-spitting-on-sidewalk-report-says/

    Very impressive, but there's something creepy about that thing. Looks like something out of an old Nine Inch Nails video.
