I've always thought #capitalism was a divisive system, but now I think we're reaching the point where it's stopped working properly, even in its own terms. As birthrates fall, such as in Germany, the cracks start to show. There aren't enough consumers, so they're forced to export aggressively and to support that they keep lending other countries money at rates they can't afford. It's the Same with China and America and both pairs are trapped.

I never saw this so clearly before, but capitalism needs an ever expanding workforce because rising pay rates breaks the system. For a while we can move the people around, but eventually global birthrates will drop and this issue will be with us permanently. It also needs an expanding pool of consumers, or demand falls. In the same way, we can't keep making stuff, we can't keep generating consumption, even if we didn't have the Environmental angle, we still couldn't.

Surely, we can't keep generating more and more, we have to start sharing out what we have and capitalism has no model for that, does it? I'm thinking about this as an Economic newbie so please tell me what I'm getting wrong and how can this model keep working?

I bought a #RemixOS Mini. I hope I like it. It was a very rare impulse buy and when I say rare, I'm talking less than 10 in a  lifetime. I don't know what possessed me. I should have thought it over more, but lets hope it was a good idea. I'm waiting to see. It should arrive in about a week apparently.

Facebook is for the rich and powerful; not the likes of us. That's the lesson I learnt here
Facebook has a Periscope-like live-streaming video tool now available — but only for celebrities. The social media giant today introduced Live for Facebook

#antivirus   #thoughtexperiment   I've often thought the best way to test security software would be to download cracks from random torrent sites and use them for the wild tests. I'm guessing some would be malware and some would be clean. But here's the thing: there would no contextual clues as to which is which. So the test would be like a white room test and pretty much definitive. Why can't this be done? I would trust a test like that +Graham Cluley

I guess what you're saying is, there's no definitive criteria for judging what constitutes a malicious action. I can understand that, but that leads me on to the question, who makes that decision in the tests so trusted by Tech journalists?

Couldn't you retrospectively watch the same files over a period of time and actually see what they're doing? Then report the results later?

I've been thinking about this more since noticing many AVs flag Torch Browser and seemingly for no good reason I can see. I'm asking the wrong person inasmuch as Sophos doesn't make this error, but respected engines like Avira do. Am I simply expecting too much?

The Greek crisis, as we're meant to call it, has changed my mind about Europe and not in a good way. I was always pro Europe before this episode, but I was always taught, any society must be judged by how it treats it's most vulnerable members and by this yardstick, Europe has come up very short.

It's not as if this has any chance of solving Greece's problems. They will still default in the end and it will surely hurt a lot more after being stretched to breaking point over and over. This was all about the lenders playing the hard guy and I'll find that very hard to forgive.

The +European Commission should be ashamed. They've been no better than shills for the IMF and Germany. It's disgraceful.

Nigel Farage never had much impact on me, but I might well vote to leave the +European Union after this week's sad events.

I guess the ad industry will take a while to escape their delusion that we'll accept targeting as long as they serve us ads for things we want. We won't, most of us, ever.

There's a dichotomy . One group really wants to buy the latest gimmick and show off. That mind set already share their recommendations with everyone. There's no new information there.

The rest of us prefer privacy and serendipity. We don't want to be tutored in what to like. You already lost us when you thought you new what was good for us. We just want you to go away now.

I've been using my #Chromebook for a few weeks now and I think it probably does fulfil most users needs. Unless you're a programmer, artist, or other arcane creative, there's no real need for anything else. Of course there are privacy concerns and many other concerns for that matter, but from the average user perspective, I'm guessing there are none that really matter.

I'm not seeing plus counts either. Is this an app thing or is it the same on the site?
 
Is it just me or did everyone's "+1"' numbers vanish? All the posts on my work page are at 1. Just curious!

Peaceful Terrorists? I wonder if that phrase will be "noticed"
Duncan Campbell spent 30 years — and risked his freedom — uncovering the secrets of U.S. and British eavesdropping, including the existence of ECHELON, one of the biggest spy scandals of the Cold War. Now, thanks to Edward Snowden, he has proof of ECHELON's existence.

It's that old 10% threshold and all bets are off
The common wisdom is that Apple computers are more secure than PCs. It turns out this isn't true.

It is kind of happening in another way though, with the democratization of destructive weapons. Is that really so very different? When everyone can afford a nuke, we're staring into the abyss. How do we stop that is the question, surely? #linus   #singularity
