Belonging is important.

You have pointed out one of civilization's biggest problems - besides a few others.

People are afraid.

People are afraid of being alone; afraid of not fitting in; afraid of making decisions for themselves by themselves.

Which is the main reason for "social media" and "amazon reviews", etc.

Why do people sign up for every website they come across?

This is a website about some japanese cat for crying out loud.

Why do people sign up for something like this? I guess it's the same people who sign up for safeway cards, starbucks cards and other discount cards.

I just don't get it.

You go into the store, you buy the shit you want and you leave. Just leave it at that for crying out loud. What's wrong with these people?

heavy use of Google's Chrome web browser (and what Android user doesn't?)

I have had my Samsung tablet for 2+ years now and I have never used Google's Chrome web browser.

I use Firefox 35.0.1 with Javascript disabled. Works fine.

But then I don't use Google Play Store either. I use F-Droid.

Just the name already - "Play" store. Sounds like something for kids.

But the subject line states "The Air Traffic Control Tower of the Future Doesn't Include Humans".

So who or what are those "controllers" in Adelaide? Aliens? Robots?

This is not about taking humans out of the loop, but simply consolidation to save money. Sickening.

And let's not even talk about safety. Because the workload and stress for those one or two controllers controlling several airports will go up dramatically.

What video ??? The article has a YouTube video about "The Abyss scene". And that's it. Completely and utterly useless!!

@bigwophh - Next time you write a summary and article add some good and useful links!! For crying out loud!! (My favorite)

And Tesla needs to learn to add some proper background music to their videos.

When we call software "free", we mean that it respects the users' essential freedoms: the freedom to run it, to study and change it, and to redistribute copies with or without changes. This is a matter of freedom, not price, so think of "free speech", not "free beer".
