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?

...or racist. People throw around the racist moniker so much that it has become a joke. I doubt if most people in this generation even know what real racism is like.

Usually throwing out labels is just a way to neutralize an opposing ideology and/or justify your own, including the actions you take to support it.

I think an overreaching government holds more of a threat at this time than a meteor strike or climate change.
