Comment Wireless neurons (Score 1) 251

We need artificial wireless neurons. Not a lot, just enough to let the brain know that stored information can be accessed via these neurons. Let the neurons pull data from the megamind AI hadoop deep thought big data servers, and voila, humans now know that religion is a hoax, jet fuel can't melt steel beams and 1+1 = 2. Then we can focus on social education instead of victorian education, and make this shit society of ours a bit better to live in.

But this tech needs to be available to anyone, not just Americans and friends. We don't need an even greater divide between ignoramuses and everyone else.

I don't understand how people are so unwilling to hand everything over to big ol' American Google, but when it comes to the big ol' Russian Google-clone Yandex there are no qualms what so ever. You dumbasses don't think they do the exact same thing, only with less oversight and antitrust litigation?

This may be a good time to switch to Linux.

You people keep saying this, but it's never true. There is still no legitimate reason for average end users to install Linux on anything. Linux is an unmanageable piece of shit for anyone who's not a computer person. Always has been, and it's the reason why 2017 also won't be the year of the Linux desktop.

You'd have to make Linux just as insecure and phishing-friendly as Windows in order to convince anyone to use it. Double-click an exe, and disregard any warnings, to install an app? May be insecure, but it's why people use Windows.

I fully agree with you that Linux can be used as a desktop, if a computer capable person pre-configures and prepares everything, and the needs of the user are so few that there's no need for exe files, but that doesn't make it a viable alternative to Windows in any argument, except in a managed environment.

If white people spent a proportional amount of time living in a ghetto and doing nothing but playing basketball all day since young, then there would similarly be many white people who were as good as black people. But poor white people don't live the same way poor black people do. The community is just different.
