Microsoft jumps in with Linux Foundation and OpenSource... while Google pulls a large ban much like Microsoft did to hacked Xbox 360 users many years ago. What's next?
Around 200 Pixel owners have lost access to their mail, photos, documents and anything else linked to their Google identity.

When do you "anti-social" most?

You see it everywhere like a modern plague; people "engaged" with their faces buried in their phone screen... their thumbs hurriedly tapping away. Some point and comment, "boy, they sure look like they are enjoying each other's company." What about when your parents say, "put that down and pay attention to everyone." sigh I AM paying attention, I heard and even commented on everything you said.

This often got me in trouble in school. I would be so occupied with my own thoughts, bored with the pace of the class, that I would draw or start reading ahead on things. The teach would feel that I wasn't listening and call on me in attempt to make example. Boy were they red in the face when not only did I prove that I heard everything they said, but but I would answer it without looking away from what I was doing. People just don't appreciate being shown up, I guess. Fast-forward to today's modern age. Everything is moving so fast, and we are consuming information at an amazing pace. I can only imagine how fast the minds of the next generations will be. I am guilty of being on my mobile device a lot. There are times when I have an idea or question, and want an immediate response. Some times, my wife and I are researching projects when out to eat. An outsider may see us as being disengaged, but we are actually working together to find a solution to the day's tasks. Perception, that's all it is. This morning, I had a thought while watching my father-in-law read the paper as he usually does. Our phones are the newspaper of yesteryear! Maybe we complained about reading the paper at the table before phones were around? Maybe it's nothing but history repeating itself?

Personally, the times I use my phone are out of convenience of downtime. Typically, I am running around doing things, always the one driving, or busy on some project. Taking the opportunities I can, to do the research and digital interaction I want to, is really what it's about. It's not my fault my downtime doesn't correlate to that of the rest of the world's. We truly do live in selfish times, where we only see actions as they relate to our own experience schedule. When do you "anti-social" most?
