Bored?

Help me pick a music track for some upcoming feature videos?

This video is a sample of what the videos will look like. This is the website I would like to buy the track from (I like the quality of the tracks and each comes in multiple lengths; which will make things easiest for me).

The Autonomous Delivery Platform would put Amazon Locker-like containers on the back of self-driving trucks, letting users type in a code or scan an NFC chip to retrieve their packages.

Google also presents the idea that customers could pay for their items right there, which could turn self-driving trucks into rolling vending machines.
Drone deliveries and self-driving cars are both right around the corner. Amazon showed off functioning, autonomous Prime Air drones last year, and Teslas a

Half of the world's population is still not online. And it's going to be a lot more difficult and expensive to get them online than it was for the first half.

"the report suggests that "connecting the remaining 4 billion will become increasingly challenging, as many are living in poverty, lack basic literacy skills and are not familiar with digital technology such as mobile phones".

Smartphones brought billions of people online, but most of these new users were literate city-dwellers with some disposable income. Most of them had access to electricity in their homes and/or offices, and high urban densities made it cheap for networks to provide 3G and 4G coverage.
Smartphones have been a huge success in connecting billions of people to the internet, but it may be much harder to bring the next 4bn online. Facebook's State of Connectivity 2015 report explains the problems....

Advancements in Technology that Advances Democracy should not be patentable.
 
"Integration of online voting with a search engine could serve several functions at once. With integrated searches directly related to the voting question at hand, voters would be better informed about their choices.
