I'm on the internet since about 1990, saw WWW and Mosaic and all, I went on Yahoo! a few times because it was a search engine, then I went to Lycos and Excite and Altavista and finally Google. As a European I never went on AOL and have not went on yahoo for more than 20 years.

I too take an oath to never go to that site!

The tiny device is injected with a syringe and another cyborg is created. It replaces other devices such as keys and credit cards. Doors open magically and coffee is purchased with the wave of a hand. Many people would never put a tracking device in their body for a job. Would you?
