Comment Be entertaining (Score 1) 111

Most people, to one degree or another, have a desire to entertain others. Once automation has replaced all jobs, the human drive to entertain and be creative will be able to fully flourish. It may come to the point where the supply of entertainment will exceed demand and AI will be developed to consume, praise or even criticize what people produce. By that times people will be so used to dealing with AI, maybe they will be able to accept AI as their audience, as difficult it is to imagine now.

Carrying a external battery connected via USB is vastly superior to swapping batteries.

- Don't have to reboot to swap.
- Cheaper and easier to find
- Same battery can change any device
- Much larger sizes available.

The main advantage of a removable battery is that it is easier to replace when it is worn out.

"Your purchasing power is directly tied to your productivity."

Wages and productivity became decoupled in 1973. Almost all the money from productivity growth since then has gone to the top 10% (half going to the top 1%).

This happened about when Noe-liberalism took hold under pro-business Presidents like Regan, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama (and Canadian and British counterparts).

The lack of legitimate investments opportunities is due to the fact consumers have had all their money sucked out, so there is nothing left to do but trade high-end real estate and derivatives among the millionaires. It not because of specifiable "regulations".
