Much of this data is invisible to people and seems impersonal. But it’s not. What modern data science is finding is that nearly any type of data can be used, much like a fingerprint, to identify the person who created it: your choice of movies on Netflix, the location signals emitted by your cell phone, even your pattern of walking as recorded by a surveillance camera. In effect, the more data there is, the less any of it can be said to be private, since the richness of that data makes pinpointing people “algorithmically possible,” says Princeton University computer scientist Arvind Narayanan.
Google might be one of the first players to have thrown their chip into the pot, but the Mountain View giant isn’t the only company betting on wearable computing.

I never thought it’d come to this point.
I’m in meetings constantly.
I code and code and code and code.
And more coding!
The stress is, however, quite bearable. I love coding. I love my job.
I got that entrepreneurial fever.
this laptops a beast, just wish it wasn’t windows 8. too bad I don’t have installation media for Linux

TrackingPoint rifle takes the hassle out of aiming a deadly weapon.
The rifle, demonstrated at a shooting range near CES this week, is able to calculate conditions such as wind, bullet drop, and humidity, to allow even a novice to become a sharp-shooter:
You pick your target by dropping a pin on it using the camcorder-like zoom lens. When you want to shoot that target, you line up crosshairs inside the scope with the pin you dropped. The weirdest thing is, when you squeeze the trigger, it doesn’t fire. You have to squeeze the triggerand line up the crosshairs with your mark. When you do, the gun goes boom, and the target takes a bullet.
As of writing, the rifle is available in two days time from the TrackingPoint website. The price tag is said to be between US$17,000 to $21,000.
I can’t say I agree with what’s been happening in the world lately. It all seems futile, doesn’t it?
Or, perhaps I’m just reading too much Nietzsche, or philosophy in general.
But come on, we have Syria vs. the Gaza Strip. Revolutions are happening everywhere in the world. And then there’s the matter of the internet and what the law is trying to change about it. They see it as a completely open platform that they cannot control; yet look at how the technology sector is still booming. They still report growth! And as one of the only things we have left going for us in economically-challenged America, why would any sane person enact laws restricting the market? How do patent trolls even win?
And even now, I lie here confused as hell. The average person doesn’t give two shits about the stock market, what’s going on in the world, or a single thing that doesn’t affect those who he or she knows.
And that’s all people talk about; other people. And they wonder why I remain silent. People constantly talk of movies, tv shows, what a fucking celebrity last did, abortion still, how Obama sucks but give no reason; and how America sucks without proving their points.
There are more important issues at hand. I simply don’t give a shit about who said what about whomever. When I try to explain this, people stare at me; unsure of how to respond. Fuck it.
