The article incorrectly cites the movie for the date
Quote:


The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.


This date is from the TV Show, IIRC. It is also unfortunately the date which cost us Sarah Jane Smith.

That's what a ship is, you know - it's not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails, that's what a ship needs.

Skynet, however, is up and runnning. I just woke up from a dream that made it all clear.

The location of everyone was known in absolute detail because of a new website that had some internet cutesy name and contained the blueprints of every building in the world. It seemed harmless, and some nutjob was ranting about how it was interfering with his privacy. I didn't like him at all. He reminds me of that psycho I met yesterday. He was protecting, or claimed to be, a friend of his, a skinny sick black guy who I didn't know, I had only seen in passing from people who seemed harmless, and sounded like they wanted to help him. (help the black guy) Peaceful friendly hippie types.

I didn't get it. Until I woke up, and then I got it right away.

Through the use of cell phones and myriad other products with GPS, including cars, his location could be known. He was actually worried about protecting someone else. The system allowed the GPS to track anyone to a specific exact location and provided a layout of every structure ever, a detailed virtual map of the Earth as a final piece in a puzzle.

The President of the United States has set forth a radical doctrine: That he can target any nation, world leader, independent group or individual, including his own citizens, for destruction, detention and assassination based on the principle alone that he disagrees with them. Not that they disagree actively with him, or represent a threat, or have threatened him.

Now we all know that people being attacked in Kandahar and Baluchistan are not only not plotting to kill the President or overthrow the US, but that they have quite likely never heard of us until a robotic unmanned satellite network controlled predator drone rained hellfire down on their village.

Now, surely you might say, these remote peoples don't have GPS? Surely they do. Cell phones are the most successful product ever, in every nation in the world, with over 5 billion users. That means everyone except for those who too elderly to be bothered with something new or too young to be trusted with it. (even if kids get their first cell phone at 7 years old, the world population under 7 is pretty large, so 5 billion is basically everyone.) Not everyone in Kandahar, but maybe someone, certainly people in Pakistan, Syria, Yemen and Libya.

Now this idea that we can attack simple to change policy and protect interests (sure, has been the hidden agenda behind US interference for decades) was stated openly by Obama as his reason for going into Libya, which laid out what is now known as the Obama doctrine, I've heard that term all over, with various connotations. Some call it "internationalist as opposed to unilateralist" an idea ridiculed even by Jon Stewart. It's the more tricky parts of the Doctrine that I think will stand out historically: American leadership of the international community, a set of nations picked by us to lead, to call the world, and most particularly: Preemption based on nothing other than the dislike of policy. No excuse needed.

Now who is this Obama guy? He's a charismatic leader who represents ideas that are not really his own, even his defenders use this as his defense, that these are the products of think tanks, and he is pressured into putting them into action, the real powers behind the throne remain unseen.

He is arrogant in a different way from his predecessor. He presumes himself to be not a world leader, but the world leader, and even during the campaign had given himself a presidential seal, and built a stage pantheon where he stood in place of Zeus. This is not a modest man, even if he appears modest and charming. He has charisma, and lots of it. The people to a degree, trust him. Not a majority, but enough.

This situation should sound all too familiar.

An interventionist/expansionist foreign policy based on world leadership of hand picked allies and lackeys, including numerous puppet govts. for a broad coalition of action for unilateral decisions that are not even his own, but come from people unknown. (This isn't Bush, he wasn't charismatic at all, it was difficult for him to pull off anything, yet he clearly served the exact same shadow advisors)

But there's a difference: He now has weapons at his disposal that no one else ever had:

GPS tell him the location of every person on the Earth, with their name and email on the contract.

Facebook has connected everything they like, dislike, every group they are a member of and everything they have said, including this forum, and the contents of your email, the history of webpages you've visited, all keyword searchable.

The Predator Drone, a robot that can fly to any spot on the Earth and terminate you while the coward behind it need never be seen nor their location or even allegiance known.

The only thing required even by the law of your anonymous foe is that he dislike your ideas. Not even yours, but those of people from somewhere near you. Or perhaps they've never heard of him or his policies, but simply have something he wants? That's enough. He doesn't like you. Or he wants something. He'll sent the robots. Satellite guided computer controlled unmanned robots with weapons capable of killing anyone on the Earth, whose location they have, and whose thoughts, dreams, fears, aspirations, views and ideas they already know.

If that's not Skynet, then such a thing will never exist.

We live in a world where there are actual fleets of robot assassins patrolling the skies. At some point there, we left the present and entered the future.

VIDEO: Skynet Becomes Self-Aware: Five Ways To Survive The 'Terminator' Apocalypse
http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/04/20/skynet-terminator-judgment-day/

Quote:

Judgment Day approaches, and we're not talking about the Biblical kind: rather, yesterday was the day that Skynet became self-aware, and April 21, 2011 is the day that it launches its robot onslaught against mankind, according to the updated "Terminator" mythology laid out in the recent "Sarah Connor Chronicles" TV series. And hey, if the machines are going to get you anyway, maybe it's time to get quiet and just give up. Maybe they won't kill you right away if you don't act like such a wiseass. I for one welcome our new robot overlords.

Completely bogus Apple suing Samsung.

Let me get this straight. Apple saw the rise of Kindle says and said "Damn, we need an ereader, stat!" So, they took an iPhone, changed virtually nothing, and then ordered some tablets from Samsung, installed the iPhone OS 3.2 and put their chip in it, and sold it as a brand new product "iPad"

Well, it was serendipity that the iPad turned out to be a great invention. Apple then invented a backstory for iPad that this was some great project that they'd been working on for years, when in reality, a 10 inch iPhone was just a great idea. It didn't do what apple wanted it to: Become the ereader competitor. Instead, it displaced netbooks as the easy to carry around computing device that could get data from a 3G network (or once they added 3G it did.)

So, along comes Samsung with their 7" Galaxy Tab. It's really just the Galaxy S, scaled up to 7". Also a really good idea. Phones are small, guys, and difficult to control. They fit in your pocket, yeah, great, but they don't really lend themselves well to use by human hands unless your hands are really small.

But if you use a Galaxy Tab, (as I still am trying to do, I prefer the portability, but so far, I've had better luck with the iPad) you will notice that it is a lot like the iPad, or the iPhone.

This is because Google took a lot of routines from iOS and reverse engineered them and built them into the latest releases of Android.

But, Apple doesn't want to sue Google, because Google is a giant US company worth half as much as Apple and has about half as many employees. Wake-up call guys. Samsung has ten times as many employees as Google, and as an institution was founded in 900-something AD. It's not going anywhere anytime soon.
