From a Science perspective this is breaking news ?

Perhaps not, as while the headline is sensational,  all that Hawking seems to suggest is that:

Black holes are not all that black

"Take the litany of numbers within which every commentary on modern tech is couched. Come the end of 2014, there will be more mobile phones in the world than people. We have moved from the launch of modern tablet computing in mid-2011 to tablets likely accounting for over half the global market in personal computers in 2014. Ninety per cent of the world’s data was created in the last two years."

Interesting read...

"It's a question that's perplexed philosophers for centuries and scientists for decades: where does consciousness come from? We know it exists, at least in ourselves. But how it arises from chemistry and electricity in our brains is an unsolved mystery"

"Their operating premise is simple: the mind is a very unusual piece of software, and the best way to understand how a piece of software works is to write it yourself. Computers are flexible enough to model the strange evolved convolutions of our thought, and yet responsive only to precise instructions. So if the endeavor succeeds, it will be a double victory: we will finally come to know the exact mechanics of our selves—and we’ll have made intelligent machines"

“Very few people are interested in how human intelligence works,” Hofstadter says. “That’s what we’re interested in—what is thinking?”

Death defying eat all you can junk food plan in the making....

"It should be noted that Kurzweil has also predicted in the past that by the late 2020s, we’ll be able to eat as much junk food as we want because we’ll all have nanobots injected into our bodies that will provide us with all the proper nutrients we need while also eliminating all the excess fat we’ll gain."

The Intelligent Internet

When Blackberry was at the prime of its business one always imagined it to be invincible. Holding a Blackberry phone was considered the in thing in corporate circles. But as it happens in the corporate world rot stems from the inside and little is known outside, till everything falls like a pack of cards.

That is how it is in the new digital era where invention not innovation alone has sustaining power. 

IBM could become that dark horse with Watson. While Google searches, Watson creates. This is a germinating idea which is leading us to a "Intelligent Internet"  It may not be enough for us to find things on the Internet, what might become more important is to know what to do with it. 

While IBM has sustaining power through transformation. Google has inventiveness.  It is hard to say how it will play out and who will create the intelligent Internet

After all, Google also wants to solve death.

Questions you just can't answer 

 1) Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard ...when he lives in the jungle ...without a razor? 
2) Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are flat?
3 )Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up every two hours?
4 )Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground? 
5) Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but don't point to their bum when they ask where the bathroom is?
6) Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs 
7) How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
8 ) If the temperature is zero outside today and it's going to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold will it be?
