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?

...except that we are, in fact, allowed to question the system (as you are doing right now, and no one is calling you a terrorist), that we have solid systems that allow us more privacy than we've ever had before (and you can always go live in a log cabin in the wilderness if you want more).

What's different now, from what I can see, is that people question the system, and when someone disagrees with them, instead of complaining that they're being called anarchist or communist or imperialist, they complain that they're being called terrorist -- even when no one does anything of the sort.
