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?

We're living it. It's called 1984. (Or Brazil, as another good example)

Where no man is allowed to question how any part of the system, because that makes him a terrorist. Privacy is a crime because we've been told that only terrorists have something to hide. Corporations own everything, including your identity; nothing is truly yours.
