Facebook put out a patent application for a face recognition system that will match your face in stores and correlate it with your social media profile to assign you a shopper trust level.
That's some seriously dystopian shit right there.

What if everyone got their cut? What if you took the GDP (after government spending, and I'm even including the amount of that spending that reduces the cost of living or turns money directly over to citizens) and split it evenly among all adults? I reckon we'd each get about $45k. Heck, call it $40k and the capitalists can fight over the remaining trillion dollars every year.
A household like mine would have $80k.
We (6 people!) could live VERY comfortably on $80k.
Highly doubtful, Michael Dell.

I'll be completely honest, I suck at it. I always fucked my knees, back, skin, etc. I'm not strong enough to handle my pack, I overheat after like 20 mins and sweat ridiculous amounts and I'm really slow. But there's a honest self-torture element that I crave very badly. It is VERY hard to think about the bad things in life when you're in overwhelming physical discomfort. I'm constantly reminded that I could get killed by several things, and at times that is a relief.
also sorry I'm always so negative here, if you want the candy coated version of things you can just follow the twitter
@FerdiZ Frankly, if you have a Windows 10 vintage computer - and you don't work at a corporation - you won't have Java. At home.
On your work machine? You may well have it and won't even know. It's not your problem.
But someone at your IT department right now will be sweating bullets trying to work out how to protect the company after January 2019 because of Application Foobar deployed in 1999 that runs the entire widget manufacturing system, or whatever.
@FerdiZ Just uninstall Java. You'll know if a website you need uses it; it'll just stop working.
Most *consumer facing* websites made in the last ten years won't use Java! It's clunky and slow and nobody has ever liked it.
But corporate and government websites? They'll update them, I guess, eventually. And by 'update' I mean 'buy a completely different product'.
The systems that use Java applets / JWS are generally ones that consumers will never see, but that run entire corporate backends.
