Humor Now that I'm done with my internship and ready to take on OSNews again, I figured it'd be nice to start off with something light-hearted. I just read that Google bought an unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with a camera, ready to photograph whatever it flies across. We may consider Google's biggest threat to be privacy, but with all this computing power they have, their Street View cars, and now, unmanned flying drones, they look more and more like SkyNet to me. So, what's your most likely apocalyptic scenario?

A brief comment on your scenario, manufacturing a gun isn't that hard. You can just build a full working gun out of a metal garbage can and the trash inside.

As for my most likely scenario, I'm thinking rise of the robots. I think it will be google's fault. Really, think about it for a second. They want to index everything. You cannot index everything if there are people constantly creating new things. So I'm thinking that some of Google's hardware will come to the conclusion that the only way to actually index everything is to destroy it all right after being indexed.
