What if these sensors go haywire or we hack the devices to have wrongly imputed requests for assistance, a bit like prank-calling 9-1-1? Electronic terrorism will surely be one of the games my kids will enjoy doing in 20. And assistance services filtering out bogus requests until there's a bug and someone dies thanks to an algorithm. Funny how this isn't shown to the masses, as working with many companies shows how chaotic any system really is in the internal background because of these same humans.
Swiping to type is great on smaller screens and its hardware keyboard brings me back to the days when I was proudly using that overclocked UT Starcom PPC 6700. The camera on this particular phone is getting at me when I discovered it was actually stabilizing videos by itself, in 720p which isn't bad if we consider the SCN automations.
Unfortunately, it seems it lost all connectivity to the hardware speakers without being an issue for the OS, still playing the sounds and having a functional headphones jack as well as active and recording mics. Here's one example photo from the device.
In retrospect, and why I am here making the point as an #OG (Original Googler): Although I was convinced being part of many A-B tests in earlier years, it seems I dropped back to only being a geographically-looked-up IP consumer. Unfortunate for those U.S. businesses, as even scripting along my desires won't change that force-feeding of Canadian ads on video. Search was able to sufficiently accommodate me all these years without me taking it to the public space. I'd love doing business with you guys, but I need the money to move back permanently to the States to see your content and offerings unless I search for you.
Nonetheless, it can only be because of laws and regulations as skipping all video ads other than from US companies will clearly show that Canadian advertisers paid for nothing, hence the question: Why would they keep at it? Doesn't matter if 95% don't question it if I really want something in particular, and that is something Google obviously considers for me to stay an active consumer and participant in their revenue-making model. Wasn't marketing based on my input? I don't think it is anymore even though all the power of customization is available. As crazy as I would sound to the mainstream, there's less options for the geeky 1%. Hope they are still having search operators to keep me excited hehe. 9)
