        Are you worried about patches? About browsers that spy on you?

        About what to do with Windows 7 after Win 7 End of  Days, next January? About what Satya Nadella might be up to next?

        About Azure, Bitcoin, the IoT, silent, electric self-driving cars set loose on the roads, Segways set loose on city pavements, flying cars skimming the rooftop of your house, someone spying on you from above with a camera-bearing drone, everything running on the Cloud (and only available for a fast recurring fee), having your personal identifiable information (PII) in one of those huge data bases that are being raided twice a week, as a matter of course? Or about quantum computing set to crack all your encrypted correspondence and data, some cloudy day?

        Well: really there is not enough reason to worry about any of that anymore, after you have read this article:

        Doomsday Clock

        Thanks for sharing:
        Aaai, times are changing, and not for the better as the elderly use to say.
        It may be nice if you have more positive twists to offer, and change the mood of this day too.

        Hey way off base, we just came off Daylight Saving Time its only 2 minutes to 11 pm.

        But just wait till April 😬

        Being of the age to have hidden under my school desk I will say I was never so afraid as I am these days. A good percentage of the world is at war, truth and honesty seems to be given a short shrift even in my own country. Perhaps I am just wise enough now to be afraid and to young, naive and optimistic to be back then…

        🍻

        Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

          Wavy: Nice try. But, as per the article, the clock was set (or, rather, kept) in January.
