I would love that, however we should focus our tech on world problems rather then laziness and personal comfort. We get lazier and lazier, the more tech makes it on us.

jessicaalderson7614's curator insight, September 24, 2014 8:13 AM

Generally individuals fear about the quality of products and as a result go for customization right in front of their eyes. However, there are leading and reputed furniture stores Furniturefirst at Edmonton that provide best quality furniture and are known for delivering durable and sturdy pieces of furnishings.

Dane MillerHass's insight:

People are always down on tech, and I am as well to a certain extent, but if we use it not to make us lazy, dumb, and fat, we use it to better ourselves and the world around us. Programs like this should be bigger and more numerous. We have advanced so far, and if we put it to the good of the world, the world will grow. Sometimes tech actually seems to regress us no matter how advanced it is.

It's happened to you many times: A Facebook friend posts an interesting news story — say, about satanists wanting to build a monument on the steps of the Oklahoma statehouse — and you're tempted to click "Like," but you hesitate.

Ah! I could really use this on Instagram. All the time I don't outright agree, but I, well, sympathize. All these new developments are crazy, making life easier and easier. I hope we don't make life too easy, though.

Instagram scam lured 100,000 users to give up login info for 'likes'

Instagram scam lured 100,000 users to give up login info for 'likes' | World Tech | Scoop.it
Before being removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play , an app called InstLike duped Instagram users into sharing their login information with the app in order to gain 'likes' and followers, a report said.
Dane MillerHass's insight:

To be honest, I don't think this is that terrible. The app doesn't jack up your account, it justs makes you follow people and like other people's photos. Unless you have super strict restrictions on who you follow it doesn't matter, really. But, I guess I wouldn't want to check it to find out I follow 3 new people I don't know but also find out 1 person has followed me from my points.

Wow. This is amazing. It isn't really invisible, but... still. It deploys like an airbag, but isn't in your way the rest of the time. This just might revolutionize biking.

How Facebook Decides if Your Posts Are Naughty or Nice | World Tech | Scoop.it

Similar to Santa, Facebook is constantly watching over your business’s activity on Facebook to determine how “nice” your content is.


Facebook recognizes that each user has hundreds of connections to friends, family, and businesses on Facebook who are all regularly sharing content.

At first glance, I thought it would be intrusive. But I realized it would help make everyone happier. You will have to think deeper, and the people interested will get it and the people not won't. Everyones is happy. And you won't get spam posts that induce flame wars.

5-20 percent are civilian casualties in drone strikes. That is not acceptable. Spying on people? Not good either. I understand concerns but... this is a little over the top. The U.S. shouldn't spy, and make drones more precise so innocent people aren't slaughtered. Because if we slay non-combantants, aren't we the terroists.

Willing to pay $1mill+ for their car in a game, Carmakers look to video games for new routes to market

Willing to pay $1mill+ for their car in a game, Carmakers look to video games for new routes to market | World Tech | Scoop.it
Automakers are increasingly strengthening their relationships with video-game manufacturers as they seek to promote their vehicles and woo young gamers as future customers.

Via Gary Hayes
Dane MillerHass's insight:

That seems like a lot, but on a deeper level, it shows multiple things and is profitable. In the millions of players brains, they how cool the car they are driving is. How it looks, handles, how fast, despite being a game. And they now it is a real car. Subconciously, this inclines them to that car, but more likely the brand.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, November 5, 2013 6:15 PM

Quote "

Games industry analyst Brian Blau of Gartner, who once worked on licensing deals with carmakers, said auto companies are willing to pay as much as a million dollars if one of their cars is deeply integrated into the storyline of a video game, all the way down to appearing on the cover of the box. "Advertisers are very keen on these kinds of immersive technologies," he said.

And carmakers need to stimulate demand amongst younger drivers. In Germany, Europe's largest auto market and home to major car companies, sales of vehicles to younger people have been in decline, with official data showing the share of new cars sold to people aged between 21 and 39 dropping each year since 2009 from 20 percent to 16 percent currently.

Whereas car sales have stagnated at around 3 million vehicles for years, video game sales in Germany rose for a third straight year in 2012 to a record 73.7 million. More importantly, over a quarter of the 26 million Germans that regularly played video games last year earn above-average incomes, taking home over 3,000 euros after tax every month."

I find it interesting that the cleanup is still happening. After all this times you would think it was done, but it is suprising that it isn't. It must be difficult having to suit up every day and do the cleanup, in danger of radiation. However, the people who do it are brave to risk themselves like that.
