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?

I think the loop is being closed though, using technology. http://camendesign.com/writing/privacy - The Price That Cannot Be Bartered.

Interesting article, but I don't understand all the paranoia with corporations. Corporations don't have even a micro-fraction of the power or influence that the government has.

Follow the money trail. The corps rake in massive profits, the governments are wracked by debt.
