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?

The society we live in is brain-dead enough to put an ad up like this and think it alright:

And where is the opt-out for CCTV? If you went to someone’s home and they did have cameras in it—and they were fine with that, but you were not—where would the opt-out be for that?

Things are changing on the whole gradually, and through that the changes are becoming impossible for the one individual to reverse. Everybody has to go with the flow.
