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?

Not many real news in a hot summer day? ;)

Anyway, what I hope is that something really happens and changes this miserable planet where we are living. (21 12 2012, perhaps?)
Just a couple of examples:
1)Governments which lie to us every day, and govern in the best interest of the big corporations, while the divide between the have and the have-not keeps growing, in the western world.
In the poorest countries there are one billion people at risk of starvation.
2)Pollution: I don't believe for a moment that in 2010 we should still be using oil derivatives, and happily destroy our home. I wonder if we are already past the point of no return.
