Not Breaking, but Interesting News

20 February 2015

And now we know why the world has suddenly become acutely aware that privacy is almost nonexistent. Yep, nobody does anything anymore if they’re not getting paid. Dang.

So basically, we’re all starting to agree that our first driverless car–yes the ones people like you and me will own–will be iCars. Place your bets, folks. If Google doesn’t speed things along, the folks at Apple are going to steal their driverless thunder. Project Titan indeed.

HAHA, I’m not the only one that’s tired of playing Cards Against Humanity. I can’t wait to play this until I’m sick of it, too!

Apparently, hackers are kickin’ it inside an unclassified section of the State Department’s email. Yep, the government knows they’re there; they just can’t get them out. Privacy really is an illusion, y’all.

Space really makes for a one hell of a metaphor for life, huh? “In effect, the act of merging creates a gravitational blueprint that the galaxy, the stars, and the black hole will follow in order to build themselves,”

So what if they never make it to Mars? Someone will, eventually. I had the conversation with my husband and we decided that the next time someone’s asking for volunteers, we’re in. What about you?



  1. Apple will never make a car, build a car, etc. Apple wants to KNOW MORE about cars – specifically the eye candy stupid rich people like. That is why they hired a Mercedes interior guru. All the jerking off done by people in the valley about a single linkedin profile change is kind of fucking annoying. It’s like saying your husband is undergoing a sex change because he read the back of a tampon box while taking a shit.

    1. You could be right, but I think there is something interesting behind the buzz surrounding rumors that Apple was looking to do business with Tesla. Nothing’s certain at the moment, other than the gathering of knowledge. I’m just saying that they’re gathering knowledge in order to make a move, that’s all.

      1. Apple is just fooling the lap dog press because Apple is very lazy, very greedy and very behind Google in the car area, as in everything else, except for ego and vanity. Google has a small fleet of their cars on the road NOW. Not “in the near future” or “whenever they build up capacity to match the rumors”. Right. Now. They are already hiring more test drivers because they are putting more of their “already built and working that actually exist” cars on the road. Apple is more or less finger fucking the press on this idea and the whole god damned world thinks it is something special.

        I’ll just say that I find it funny that a few weeks after Google starts hiring more test drivers, a single LinkedIn profile change happens and suddenly Apple is going to dominate the auto world.
