Ceiling Robot Is Watching You...
Does Tumblr count as one of those sites? I doubt the ISP's have the spine to take on a site that big.
AT&T U-verse customers have been able to use the XBox as their set top box for some time now.
I'm sure the smaller companies with have common members of their respective board of directors, and common shareholders as well, so virtually not much changes.
There's probably less risk by dividing up the companies. If one company has a screw up, it's sister company can skate by unscathed. It will be more and more difficult for oil companies to find resources; as they take more and more chances, there's more opportunities for public blunders.
Well, FPSRussia was able to infiltrate a recent episode of Epic Meal Time, so.. maybe?
I wrote a song recently called Music for Mining on the Moon. http://soundcloud.com/milkshake-daddy/music-for-mining-on-the-moon
I think the senator is getting his ideas from me. Time to start wearing the foil hat again, or stop writing songs about my ideas and putting them on the interwebs.
Related, Conductor, a link broker, is dropping the link brokering business and focusing on automated SEO tools.
I stopped going to movie theaters in favor of my giant TV+ DVDs, Blu Rays, NetFlix, YouTube, PS3, etc. I have my fridge full of snacks, and can pause movies at any time, and visit my clean bathroom at any time. The best part is I don't have surly teens kicking the back of my chair, talking on their phones, throwing candy, talking during the movie, etc...
If me, and people like me, abandoning theaters means no more R-rated CG overblown blockbusters, so be it. Intriguing films can be made for relatively low budgets.
If you want Heavy Metal part II, turn on your Mathmos lamp, put on some metal music, and scroll though some pr0n on Tumblr.
I'm in the midst of recording my new album, so I have to keep adding one power strip after another as I drag more instruments into the room.
Right now I have a lamp, a shredder, two iPod chargers, a cellphone charger, 2 keyboards, 2 drum machines, my craptop, and a mess of other stuff running off to outlets.
I didn't even think twice about it until today.
One way to look at this is humanity is moving towards more of a hive mind type of intelligence. Rather than having to store vast amounts of information in our brains, we spread that information out across our population. Saves time. Intelligence becomes more about knowing how to ask a question or locate who has the information, rather than wasting time hoarding trivia. The danger is that once one mind is infected, the bad information spreads, and the hive collapses.
I hope you like our little aquarium.
Jersey? They're too close to Snookie for my comfort. The end is near.
If this was Fark (and 2003) I would be making a photoshop of guidos installing pizza boxes in place of blade servers.
They could probably make enough money off of Google ads for "mesothelioma" on their mesothelioma page to give books to millions of children.
Problems arise when advertisers ask Wikipedia to censor content to suit the position of the advertisers. No doubt that would happen.
If ads to show up on Wikipedia, and you don't like it, Google the topic and click the links below Wikipedia -- that's where the Wikipedia editors probably scraped the content from in the first place.
