    Funny videos.

    Good news for privacy buffs - Amazon is getting ready to kill off ff Alexa.
    Amazon Alexa is a “colossal failure,” on pace to lose $10 billion this year – Ars Technica

    Surprise, folks normally will not pay for an online service that was offered free.Case in point, Photobucket. Once a free to use service, in 2011 started demanding $400/yr+. They finally backed down on pay-to-use, but by them the damage was done.

    Expect the rest to follow.

    Sometimes technology simply becomes too invasive.

    I recall back in the 80s when I was getting into computer programming and automation having teachers telling everyone that technology was going to free everyone. They would have no need for government because the computers would be able to do everything. One teacher thought we would never have government again. I know its silly to think that people don't want freedom but its true. They crave subservience but if you look at Bitcoin its proof. Money/tech that can free all people, end war, and get rid of government and nobody is really using it much in comparison. They chose Binance, and the dollar, gold and silver, and FTX instead. Its a pretty good analogy for the messed up way people think. You hand them freedom and they choose slavery just about 90% of the time.

    Do you not wish to be able too go find those IDIOTS, today, and point out just how "Full of Bull Crap" they were???
    Or maybe that is where all these Professional Protesters come from, while taking College level courses in "Basket Weaving" while racking up $100K of College Debt, and expecting us Taxpayers, to Pay it off for them....
    Inquiring Minds would like to know....

    I want to go back to the 1980s. Things were a little more sane back then.

    I would prefer to go to the 1890s when things were a LOT more sane.
