+ - Lowe's announces prototype "holoroom" kitchen showroom prototypes in Canada->

Submitted by Legal.Troll
Legal.Troll (2002574) writes "(from the the-goggles-they-do-nothing department?) Lowe's has announced they will be testing a new tablet-interfaced "holoroom" designed to allow customers to see a visual representation of kitchen installations in real time while they browse. An iPad with custom software will be used to conduct the user-driven product demonstration. The thing only looks about ten times creepier than a giant MRI machine, so I have no problem being one of the first to walk in and let it project laser beams at me so that the sales force can be laid off!"

I plan to start a legal defense fund for persons accused of "unprovoked" assaults on Google Glass users... The defense will be that the users themselves are walking violations of well-established traditional notions of privacy, and deserve to have the device punched off their face and smashed on the ground.

Reading since 97, posting since late 2000's, I saw Beta once and it was horrid; I noticed there was no "please let me never see this again" option. I'm sick of innovation in website and GUI design. Existing paradigms work fine for me and I dislike having to constantly relearn the interface elements to access basic functionality just because of some designer's wet dream of The Future.

I've got to say I regard you as a tinfoil-hatter; your comments border on the nonsensical, especially the part where you justify six murder attempts by glibly assuming that the victims must have all tried to (evilly!) blackmail the guy who set up this crime network. And your breathless account of how the Silk Road model promises to take violent crime out of the illicit drug trade is just absurd.

What sort of prosaic nonsense is this? The guy set out to get rich by making an illegal and illicit black market, did so, tried to have a bunch of people killed using ill gotten gains as a lure, etc., and you sit and preach in foreboding tones, as if to imply he is somehow not the bad guy, or not A bad guy, or not a guy who did things we should be concerned about? He's just a sucker shoved into some media role by unseen string pullers? Your conspiracy theory is a bit heady, no?

Of course, there's no way a mandatory government programâ"requiring a nationwide database of digital health data to be provided to, and managed by, incompetent, viciously partisan bureaucratsâ"could be worse than the existing private-sector arrangement run by insurers who lack the power of a Roman emperor and don't require you to deliver your medical records to packet-sniffing Romanian criminals, conveniently packaged with the records of the other 300 million people in this country. SO YOUR SARCASM IS WELL TAKEN GUISE.
