    Robots and horrible future
    • Smart people I am talking with predict that next big thing won't be shit all media are focusing now. No. Next big thing will be quite cheap, affordable telepresence robots and big part to make it happen is cheap VR.
      So, for some it'll be still more games and fun. But for hundreds of millions it'll be hard work, as they will be sitting in their poor home in distant country and cooking you dinner or watching for a child or do construction work.
      Such roboots will still have some self control to mitigate delays and ensure safety.
      Robot will also send and track all operator actions to prevent any real harm (and it'll be lot of guys who'll try to make it).

    Degradation: 25% of US homes already have personal NSA spy
    • In second-quarter 2018, 24% of homes owned a smart speaker device, according to the MediaTech Trender (up from 22% in Q1 2018). When breaking down usage during a typical day, people spend more time using their smart speakers on the weekend (average 72 total minutes) than the weekday (average 65 total minutes).

      And things are getting worse fast

      Of the U.S. homes that have a smart speaker, four out of 10 have more than one device in the household. Furthermore, 62% of smart speaker owners first started using the device within the last six months, with 45% planning to purchase more devices for their home.

      But even with futuristic, innovative services available at their fingertips, smart speaker users are still overwhelmingly using their devices to listen to audio; nearly all (90%) say they listen to music on the speaker in a typical week, while 68% listen to news.

      About 81% of users report using voice-command searches for real-time information, such as weather and traffic conditions, during a typical week. When looking for factual information, such as answers to trivia or historical facts, 75% of users report turning to their smart speaker in a typical week. Users also enjoy smart speakers for their quirkier, yet cutting-edge features: 68% of them use the device to chat with the voice assistant for fun.

      Smart speaker is degrading device whose answers are fully formed by ruling class to suit their need.

    Gaming trend started to run out of fuel
    • Asustek Compouter has dismissed a recent media report that claimed the company was ready to axe half of its gaming department's personnel with at least 300 employees to be affected, and to also lay off workers in its handset and notebook departments.

      Asustek has already eliminated about 100 jobs mainly at its handset and gaming notebook departments in September, with the affected employees either relocated to other departments or given special severance compensations.

      Hope it'll go faster from here.

    Microsoft: Subscriptions or be afraid, be very afraid
    • Same as Adobe, Microsoft almost removed any mentions of Office 2019 from related site pages. Also they cut standalone Office as much as they could and moved almost all developers from it to their new fancy cloud services with huge margins.

      Internal corporation plans is to move to subscription only model for all except big business and government (they will be still allowed to use standalone versions).

      Series of price hikes will follow soon.

      It is very interesting to see how nature of capitalism stick here, even such means of production, even with such much license restrictions must be moved further from ownership and towards being provided for lease to workers or small businesses.
