Well after that vid, I took a quick peek behind the scenes at some of the TempleOS code.
His code to handle multiple cores is a hoot.


Code: [Select]
CCPU *CPUStructInit(I64 num,CCPU *c,CTask *seth_task)
{//Seth is null when called by adam on CSysFixedArea.boot_cpu0
  MemSet(c,0,sizeof(CCPU));
  c->addr=c;
  c->num=num;
  c->idle_factor=0.01;
  QueInit(&c->next_dying);


Seth is null when called by adam makes my damn head hurt.

I wish that Gmail on android wouldn't keep opening a notification about disabled permissions every 15sec. It makes writing an email a very trying experience.

Companies start implanting microchips into workers' bodies

Quote
The syringe slides in between the thumb and index finger. Then, with a click, a microchip is injected in the employee's hand. Another “cyborg” is created.

What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish start-up hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and start-up members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.

“The biggest benefit, I think, is convenience,” said Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and chief executive of Epicenter. As a demonstration, he unlocks a door merely by waving near it. “It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.”

Quote
“People ask me, ‘Are you chipped?’ and I say, ‘Yes, why not?’” said Fredric Kaijser, the 47-year-old chief experience officer at Epicenter. “And they all get excited about privacy issues and what that means and so forth. And for me it's just a matter of I like to try new things and just see it as more of an enabler and what that would bring into the future.”

Epicenter workers stage monthly events where attendees can receive the implant.

Have some fun with these search terms. Use all three in your favorite search engine.  "telemetry implanted device"  sans quotes.   ;)

Burger King tried to make a tv ad that would activate phone voice controls.

Quote
The fast-food franchise had hoped a line spoken by an actor in the ad would trigger voice-activated Google devices — such as Android phones and Google Home speakers — to search for the Whopper burger's ingredients.

The ad depicts an actor dressed as a Burger King employee holding up a Whopper and talking into the camera.

"You're watching a 15-second Burger King ad, which is unfortunately not enough time to explain all the fresh ingredients in the Whopper sandwich. But I've got an idea," the actor says, before moving closer to the camera. "Okay, Google, what is the Whopper burger?" Initially, the final line was reportedly able to activate Android phones or Google Home speakers within listening range of the TV, prompting them to search Wikipedia.

But attempts to test the ad on a Google smartphone by The Verge and Buzzfeed have since found the tech giant's devices are no longer moved by the audible prompt. A spokesperson for the fast-food chain said Google had blocked its devices from responding to the ad. Google has yet to respond to the claim.
Burger King, which is owned by Restaurant Brands International, did not collaborate with Google or Wikipedia on the marketing campaign.

The ad is slated to air in prime-time slots on US television networks, as well as during popular late-night shows.

the best way to secure a windows computer is to remove windows and install linux or a bsd (and NOT mac osx).

But isn't that just a mitigation of risk? I am not that technical but considering things I hear about certain routers, Intel chips (and maybe others,) already being compromised I would reckon that my Linux laptop might be safe from the more mundane viruses but not from the sophisticated attacks by more aggressive hackers or government(s) especially if I'm hooked into the internet or using WiFi or 4G etc or having accounts (email, bank, credit union, CCs, etc) with people that are running who knows what type of system and equipment?

the only way to be safe from those attacks is to not own a computer or related devices. consumer routers are notorious for being insecure, components from china being backdoored, NSA/CIA/FBI/other govt agencies (and not just the US) are constantly searching for exploits to use (and they have access to $micro$oft'$ and apples source code to easier find said exploits). judges granting secret search warrants to force isp to log data to use against you, and so on.
 
aggressive hackers are more likely to go for the money; selling cc #'s and data, selling user (generally corporate)  data and so forth. unless one has a personal grudge against you, that is an unlikely avenue of attack.

the point is that if some one wants into your stuff bad enough ,they will find a way, no matter the protections you take or the OS you use. its the same theory as "locks only keep out the lazy thieves" .

Sweet rig Miku. She's even using a   ' k '  chip, so it can be overclocked. World record on that chip is almost 7 GHz. (You'll need a Liquid Nitrogen setup though  ;)  )

Neil Young has killed his shitty, $400 mp3 player and replaced it with a shitty, overpriced streaming service. This should end well.
