Is the Pope Trying to Redeem Colonialism?
He is canonizing Junipero Serra for saving the souls of native peoples—despite a prevalent contemporary view that Serra was an agent of cultural imperialism.

h/t +peter k 
Junipero Serra is being canonized for saving the souls of native peoples. In 2015, is it possible to see him as anything other than a cultural imperialist?

You missed religion out of your list of bad ideas that motivate people to kill people.

I hope this isn't how you are feeling right now, Kate. You are the only reason I still visit G+ at this point.

Not only the device can be hacked and controlled by a remote hacker but also the toys send sensitive information such as device temperature and vibration intensity, frequency of use and other private and intimate information back to the developer, Standard Innovation.

While the company defended its data collection policy, saying it was disclosed in its user agreement and privacy policy. The app's licence agreement simply says it may collect and share your information in line with its privacy statement, which is rather thin on detail.
A class action lawsuit has been filed against a “smart” dildo manufacturer for keeping tabs on its customers’ use of the product.

OTOH such devices clearly pave the way of distance sex, well, of both true and simulated distance sex. To the equivalent for our genitals or skins of what voice and video calls are to our ears, eyes, voices and faces. It would be stifling to that natural purpose if the inter-devices communication channel was not to transmit any intimate information in real time.

This would seem to have as most natural solution the establishment of p2p cryptographic channels between devices before communication of any real time intimate data... but we can't have that, can we, since then terrorists could exploit the channel by faking distance sex to have instead video chat data secretly transmitted?

Apple: The definition of bad design.

I really don't care that "It only takes a few hours to charge it, and it'll last for a few months." That is not helpful for the ones whose the batteries run down anyway.

Kate of all trades, mistress of the universe - Writer, gadget lover and beyond...
Introduction
Dare I say, I'm a writer. I haven't defined my genre yet, but I'm experimenting going in all directions. I love technology, but not a gadget-addict, not yet anyways.

I'm here to engage, as in, have civilized conversations, not to broadcast myself or watch other people plug their ears.

Circles I might fit into:
  • Writers
  • Technical writing
  • Geek/Tech Enthusiast
  • Technology/Gadgets
  • Android
  • Food / Vegetarianism
  • Humor / Irony / Smartness
  • Philosophy
  • Social Networking
  • Crazy Bitch

Rules for sending me the nudies:
- You are a male/female/other who I commonly interact with, in private, chats or posts.
- Not the above? Do not send!
