Are you ready for a future in which unmanned drones come from the sky to deliver you products you ordered less than a half hour ago?
I hope so, because that future is very close. At least Amazon hopes it is.
Do you like the idea of drones delivering products to your home? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Tattooed American Women
Posted on Sunday, October 06, 2013 5:49:36 AM by AlexW
What shocks and amazes me is that most all of the women on all of the programs are slathered with Tattoos.
Is this a new phenomena in America? Have women degraded themselves to such an extent?
Some may think it cool. I think it is disgusting.

If the notion of an anonymous identifier strikes you as a contradiction in terms, you aren’t alone.”It’s a persistent identifier, a super cookie,” says Jeff Chester, head of the Center for Digital Democracy. “Google will gain more information about users wherever they are, across platforms and with one number. This will be the new way they identify you 24/7.”

Ask a cop: Trolling should be illegal… ” I am speaking about the spineless bottom feeders who sit at their computer all day bullying other people with inflammatory comments and remarks. A troll’s sole purpose in life is to comment about an article, statement, question in a forum or other Internet venue so that comment will upset the target person or persons to the point where they are yelling at their computer and punching the monitor. The upset person will even go so far as to Google search the user name “wizardslayer7” to see if somehow there is an address associated with it.”

Why all the monitoring when you’re a good boy/girl,
By Chris Crum · 9 hour
We may have reached the end of an era. We haven’t seen anything official, but Google hasn’t been updating Toolbar PageRank, and hasn’t said that it is not killing it. In fact, earlier this year, the company hinted that a time could come that they would kill it. Now, there’s nothing but virtual tumbleweeds in PageRank land.
Do you think Google should kill Toolbar PageRank or does this still provide value? Share your opinion in the comments.
Google has not updated its Toolbar PageRank since early February, and that was the only time they’ve done so all year. It’s unlike Google to go so long without updating it, which is leading some to wonder if Google is no longer going to provide this information.

On Thursday the Nasdaq Market suffered what they claimed was a glitch in their system which caused them to halt all trading for approximately three hours, which locked up trading in stocks with a total market capitalization of $5.7 trillion.
Taken alone, this so-called glitch, while concerning, would be nothing more than a newsflash, it happened, it ended, situation over, but over the last two weeks there have been other “glitches” and “outages” and “technical errors.”
One doesn’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to think that it is all a little too coincidental.

U.S. Prism spying program rattles EU lawmakers… “The news has forced European governments to explain whether they let Washington spy on their citizens or benefited from snooping that would be illegal at home.”

Two: Hector Monsegur, one of the leaders of the LulzSac hacker movement, was identified and arrested last year by the FBI. Although he practiced good computer security and used an anonymous relay service to protect his identity, he slipped up.

What is it with YouTube and their new ad program?
Posted on Saturday, May 25, 2013 7:36:45 PM by RoosterRedux
I really used to like youtube.com. Watched old movies, gun videos, how-to videos, and all sorts of unusual films.
Am watching an old series on British Commandos tonite.
But the video ads now added to youtube are so incredibly disruptive that I have started to cut my usage down dramatically.
There is a mechanism…another site…that permits one to watch a youtube video without the ads (just add a “skip” after youtube in the address) but even that is getting overwhelmed with traffic.

Note: We’ve updated this article after people have had time to react to the test.
Google tests different things with its search interface all the time. Sometimes we cover the tests, and sometimes we don’t. Frankly there are just too many to keep track of. Matt Cutts has said that Google runs 20,000 search experiments a year.
This one is kind of interesting though, as it completely removes URLs from search results pages (apparently unless there is authorship involved). Tecno-Net tipped Search Engine Roundtable with a couple screen caps.

Several people have become interested in a quite controversial topic called “AGENDA 21.” They have requested being on a ping list for this topic.
While I do not have time to do a thorough treatment of this subject, nor am I in any way an expert, I am willing at least for a time,to ping people as I run across articles which might pertain to this concern.
It might be good to start with an examination of just what it is or might be.

The outlandish purchase of billions of rounds of ammunition by the federal government has created a serious shortage in the United States. In response, according to a Russian website Lenta.ru, suppliers in the United States are turning to Russia to fill the gap.
From Lenta.ru translated by Google on Friday:U.S. private companies purchased from Russian producers 900 million rounds of ammunition for rifles and pistols. This is with reference to sources in the military-industrial circles reported April 26 the newspaper “Izvestia”.
The subject of the contract with the Russian factories, steel machine-gun cartridges of 7.62 x 39 millimeters and a pistol – caliber 9×19 mm.

About Google Doodles
Doodles are the fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.
Who chooses what doodles will be created and how do you decide which events will receive doodles?
A group of Googlers get together regularly to brainstorm and decide which events will be celebrated with a doodle. The ideas for the doodles come from numerous sources including Googlers and Google users. The doodle selection process aims to celebrate interesting events and anniversaries that reflect Google’s personality and love for innovation.
How can Google users/the public submit ideas for doodles?

13,753 Gov’t Requests for Google E-Mail Data in 2012, Most Without a Warrant
Posted on Friday, February 22, 2013 4:05:01 PM by Olog-hai
American government agencies—state, local, and federal—made a record 13,753 requests to read emails or gather other information sent through Google’s Gmail and other services in 2012, more than half without warrants, according to statistics released by Google.
The total number of users about whom government agencies wanted information also set a record at 31,072, up from 23,300 in 2011, the first year Google began reporting the data. The discrepancy comes because government agencies request information on multiple users or accounts at the same time. …
Last week, Neil Stevens raised the alarm about Google selling out conservatives on policy issues. He’s right, but a number of conservatives and Republicans think there is an even bigger problem for GOP.
Remember that enormous, sophisticated data operation the Obama campaign had? The one that gave them massive daily data on public opinion trends in almost every segment of potential voters.
It’s almost as if Democrats had access to some sort of huge database of real time information about what the public was reading or writing online. The kind of breathtakingly large, real-time data that could be used for real-time trend analysis, predictive modeling and even behavioral manipulation.

Much of the reporting about Google’s driverless car has mistakenly focused on its science-fiction feel. In fact, the driverless car has broad implications for society, for the economy and for individual businesses.
Just in the U.S., the car puts up for grab some $2 trillion a year in revenue and even more market cap. It creates business opportunities that dwarf Google’s current search-based business and unleashes existential challenges to market leaders across numerous industries, including car makers, auto insurers, energy companies and others that share in car-related revenue.
