Journal PoliTech's Journal: Google to users: Prove you're not a virus, or be terminated!

Google suspects users are not human

Prove you're not a virus, or be terminated!

In Philip K Dick's famous novel 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' 'bounty' hunters track down, identify and kill human-like androids, this time, ironically the situation is reversed ... it wasn't a human looking for rogue machines, but a machine (the GoogleMind) testing to see if it was a human actually performing the search.

Lucky for us humans that the GoogleMind isn't armed with anything more dangerous than pixels and text! ... yet.

Link has screen-shot goodness.
