Comment Regular folk logic (Score 1) 527

You don't use BleachBit for yoga emails or bridesmaids emails. When you're using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see

But being the Clintons, aggressive Foxnews-like snoops would love to get their hands on yoga and bridesmaids info also. Look how many conservatives sites are claiming a health conspiracy. Why give conspiracy nuts more fuel? They'll weave yoga into their narrative also.

Comment Democracy [Re:Finally!] (Score 2) 60

Don't get your hopes up: bots can be programmed to stiff ya and be annoying also. Instead of chit-chat, you'll get pop-up ads. Right now there's too much press and scrutiny, but in the future when it becomes routine, tricks and slack will slide in.

On a different note, Singapore has an advantage over the USA for roll-out in that they are not a democracy* and have fewer checks and balances: if something goes wrong, the gov't can tell the victims and lawyers to STFU and everyone is used to that.

* The USA arguably isn't either, but not to Singapore's level.

Indeed. The suits get nervous and catch featuritus. In my opinion Youtube should improve its existing commenting feature. It's hard sift and re-find comments if there's a lot per vid, for example. And the reply notifier is buggy.

Forget about being a blog/photo/texting gizmo. You lost that battle already.

I'd have to disagree.

I'd LOVE to be trollin' around slashdot etc. instead of actually driving during my commute.

And my lazy son won't get a driver's license, making me drive. I'm thinking of telling him to Uber, but the idea of riding with a creepy stranger kind of bothers me. I'd rather it be creepy robot.

There are people too young, too old, or too ill to drive, and many that just don't want to. I'd say that's at least 1/4 the population (excluding younger than say 12). Big potential market.
