SILENCE PLEASE. 
I feel the need to write this just in case you're the hold-out in your group of friends or at your office who thinks it's okay to have a phone that makes noise in public.

This is fascinating.
CALI, Colombia — Jerry spends a good part of his workday watching women masturbate online.

We're reaching a tipping point on facial recognition.
facial recognition is starting to pop up in weird and unexpected places: at music festivals (to identify criminals); at stadiums (to weed out "sports troublemakers") and at churches. Yes, churches.

BIG DEAL.
Sorry, other terrible, clothed images of you will remain in your Google search results.

How Reddit is redefining free speech on the Internet with speed bumps. http://fusion.net/story/168376/reddit-will-still-allow-hate-speech-but-itll-be-slightly-harder-to-find/
Reddit will still allow "content that violates a common sense of decency," to exist on the site. Now, though, users will have to log in to view hateful content.

A new start-up lets users "build" significant others who will send them text messages. It relies on crowdsourced workers to write the texts. For a month, I was one of them.

I wonder how often they get suicide confessions. Seems like that would be a significant risk in that situation.

Many a Catholic would also consider this 'death by drone.' 
Baby-dropping storks will be replaced by an abortion pill-dropping drone in the Polish sky this weekend.

Kids are not going to bow down willingly to our new robot overlords. 
Upon meeting a humanoid robot in a shopping mall, some children immediately decided to abuse it, according to researchers from Japan, with no concerns about hurting the robot (or its feelings).

It really sucks to be among those federal employees whose records just got hacked. The agency with the data breach is the one responsible for compiling all the information that can be used to blackmail you. http://fusion.net/story/149831/opm-hack-happened-to-me/
They hacked the agency that asks people who know you, "What do you know about this person that could be used to blackmail them?"
