Google and the Government Will Collect data On Your Farts

Levi’s and Google working on interactive, internet device-linked fabric, how effing insane are these people? Are they gathering data on your fart and logging how often you scratch you belly?

Actually the claims they make for this new fabric are even crazier. I’m not saying the stuff will not do what they say, but FFS who apart from total nerds would want it. Throughout the day we all do stuff we don’t want to share with the internet.

Project Jacquard – named after the inventor of a type of loom – was revealed during the internet giant’s annual developers’ conference in San Francisco on Friday.

“We are enabling interactive textiles,” ATAP’s Emre Karagozler said while showing off the new smart textiles. “We do it by weaving conductive threads into fabric.”

To answer one of the key questions around the material itself, Karagozler explained: “It is stretchable; it is washable … It is just like normal fabric.”

The new type of threads used for the material can be woven into any shape, size or pattern and be made either to stand out or be invisible. The interactive material would be able to understand various gestures like crossing your legs or swiping your sleeve with your fingers.

The special fabric would also be capable of sending the data wirelessly to smartphones and other devices, opening up an array of new types of applications, aside from the most basic communication commands like placing a phone call and sending a text message.

“It becomes a home to new forms and applications we haven’t thought of yet. The potential is that the input is the gesture – crossing your legs, swiping, saving, lifting,” Vice President of Innovation for Levi’s said.

While not exactly an option for everyone, the interactive fabric would even be capable of notifying its wearer if they were gaining weight and be ready to suggest gyms, yoga classes and offer other health-related tips, founder of software development company FocusMotion, Grant Hughes noted.

It sounds to us like a new advance in creepiness from the world’s creepiest corporation. Steer well clear of Google in future.

jibo – The Creepy Family Robot

>RELATED POSTS

jibo – your personal electronic stalker (image source)

Launched with great fanfare from mainstream media and virtually no questioning voices, such is the fear generated in media circles by science Naziism, Jibo is billed as “the world’s first family robot”.

A cheesy, overly sentimental video selling this machine explains exactly how it will spy on your entire family and report your activities to the manufacturers, national security agencies, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and anyone willing to shell out some money to invade your privacy (all for your own safety and protection of course) And it is extremely creepy.

In the dystopian society described in George Orwel’s 1984 the creepy and brutally oppressive Big Brother regime used telescreens to keep its subjects under constant surveillance, and weed out those guilty of ‘Thought Crime’, thus eliminating (they hoped) the chance of secret conspiracies against it.

Almost 70 years after the release of the novel, telescreens are a reality and the evil Nazis of the Scientific dictatorship are going much further than Orwell’s telescreens.

Before we look at how evil their plans are, first take a look at the cheesy, sentimental, absurdly infantile video selling this product.
Many reporters at the launch asked if it was some kind of spoof or parody.

Jibo: The World’s First Family Robot

Sadly it is 100 per cent real and the product is about to ship worldwide. But that video is a psy – op designed to deflect attention from the immense potential of this machine.

If you are an independent minded, mature human being raised in an ostensibly free society, watching this piece of shit video ought to make you angry at the brainwashing techniques being used.

The sentimental, “life is so wonderful” music; The way the fake happy – family (teleported from The Truman Show/) talks to the robot as if addressing a human child; The message is, “This is what you need to complete your family. All the while, Jibo is being the family snitch, gathering data about everybody and sending it God knows where.

Pay particular attention to the way the robot interacts with family members, it is half dependent child, half prison guard. And totally creepy.

No doubt the sad, useless fucks who think they need a machine to turn a room light on for them, remember a telephone number or look up what’s on TV and report every action to the nastiest corporate and government organisations will be mad for such gadgets. They’re welcome, but I suggest when they take delivery of their electric nanny robot they have ‘Loser’ tattooed on their forehead so we don’t make the mistake of thinking they are like us.

A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality that is contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the police state dictatorship it is going to get.

When The Robots Rule The World

Has Zuckerbugger Been Messing With Your Mind?

It has been revealed that Facebook has been collaborating with the US government and creepier fringes of the academic community in carrying out experiments to manipulate users emotions.

Facebook users have reacted angrily to a “creepy” experiment carried out by the social network and two American universities to manipulate their emotions.

The US technology giant secretly altered almost 700,000 users’ news feeds to study the impact of “emotional contagion”. It tinkered with the algorithm controlling users’ feeds to find out what effect it had on their moods in January 2012.

The aim of the government-sponsored study was to see whether positive or negative words in messages would lead to positive or negative content in status updates.

Its authors wrote: “Emotional states can be transferred to others via emotional contagion, leading people to experience the same emotions without their awareness. When positive expressions were reduced, people produced fewer positive posts and more negative posts; when negative expressions were reduced, the opposite pattern occurred.

“These results indicate that emotions expressed by others on Facebook influence our own emotions, constituting experimental evidence for massive-scale contagion via social networks.”

Facebook carried out the research over one week in collaboration with Cornell University and the University of California.

It isn’t just Facebook of course, Google and Microsoft have been at it too – and in even creepier ways than Facebook. Are you surprised? Outraged? Or are you one of those sad acts who think its col to ‘share’ with the world stories of your intimate relationship with your hamster.

The attempt to use computer technology to control emotions is futile of course, a computer can only do what it is programmed to do and how can the kind of creepy nerds who work for corporations like Facebook and Google program computers to trigger or suppress emotions the programmers are not capable of experiencing. Emotions are a human thing and all the other humans quit the computer industry around the time I did.

Whatever, some of us have for years been posting warnings of how creepy these technology companies are. And academics? – Well it isn’t that long since the words mad and scientist were linked in the same way as greedy and banker.

Google Come Over All Boomtown Rats

I Don’t Like Mondays

The silicon chip insider her head
is switched to overload
and nobody’s going to go to school today,
she’s going to make them all stay home …

Remember the words of The Boomtown Rats biggest hit (their only hit in the USA)?

Well it’s about to become reality in a literal rather than a metaphorical sense thanks to Google (Corporate slogan “Don’t be evil, that’s our job,) and their latest world domination scheme.

A few months ago Boggart Blog reported on the launch of Google Goggles, aka Google Glass, a technology that would get Google’s advertising and propaganda right in users faces twenty four hours a day.

Just think, when you are eating luch, when you are making love, when you are having a dump, right before your eyes Google are there hinting, nudging, suggesting. Totally creepy, it can’t get any more creepy right? Wrong.

Those semi autistic, neo – Nazi scum suckers at Google now have plans to get right inside your head. That’s right, their latest product in development is a silicon chip that would be implanted inside peoples’ heads to interface directly with their brain.

As usual Google’s sleazy marketing people have come up with a pitch that make it easy to brand objectors as anti – social, they say the idea would help disabled people drive wheelchairs. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKKKKK but that is not likely to sell enough to recoup development costs so what’s the real agenda?

Boycott Google now. They make Adolf Hitler look like Mother Teresa, that’s how evil they are. Here’s a list of alternative web search tools (ignore Alta Vista, tey have just been absorbed into Yahoo. But really you need look no further than Bing, Ask Jeeves or Web Crawler which aggregates other search engine’s data. Another listing site also offers some little known search technologies that grade results by relevance rather than how much revenue they are likely to earn is 10 Mose Useful Search Engines

Use the alternatives and you will get better information and be able t eat you luch, make love or have a dump without constant hints and helpful advice from Google.

When creepy individuals run technology firms why are we surprised that technology is creepy.

Look at a picture of Bill Gates, the richest man in the world thanks to his knack of being able to make us think ‘not fit for purpose’ is as good as technology gets.

Look at a picture of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, a nerdy looking guy very similar to all those caricature nerds who want to rule the world in movies

Do either of these billionaires look like the kind of people you are happy to have knowing where you live. Or where your girlfiend of your Dear Old Mum lives.

NNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO they don’t look like people you would want knowing where you live. They look as if they were assembled from an Airfix build-your-own-stalker kit.

They look like a couple of creepy creeps with PhDs in Creepy from Creepy University.

Look at pictures of Larry Page and Sergei Brin (no, he’s not one of the meerkats in Compare The Market ads). Actually you might have problems looking at these two semi – autistic sociopaths, they are so anal they seldom leave special chambers decorated to look like the inside of a womb, where they are played a constant, soothing, heartbeat rhythm and the gurgling sounds of a pregnant lady’s digestive system digesting and so few pictures are available.

Big players on the internet tend to be uniformly weird in a very sinister way. Just because they can only form relationships with computers and thus have nothing in their lives worth keeping private they assume nobody else has.

Internet technology has become way too creepy and intrusive.

Take these two recent developments coming soon to an NSA / GCHQ spy terminal near you.

Should Google Glass be banned?
With the PRISM revelations causing outrage, does Google Glass present too big a privacy risk?
By C.C. Reynolds | Yahoo! Contributor Network

When I first caught wind of Google Glass I was an enthusiastic supporter. Wearable technology has always fascinated me and Glass is arguably the first example that has the potential for mass market success. But since its announcement two years ago, my worries over the privacy implications have grown. The idea of everyone carrying a camera connected to an advertising company on their head should be enough to set alarm bells ringing. But these worries are reinforced by Google’s rather dubious track record as of late, which has seen it incur the biggest fine the FTC’s history for tracking Safari users and condemnation from the EU for its StreetView data stealing. Then, just last week, we learned about PRISM – the US government’s open door into Google’s servers.

I’m not alone in my skepticism over Google Glass. You can find plenty of others … Read full article:

Facebook’s Creepy New Search Function
Facebook quietly issued a warning this week to its UK users – reminding people to check privacy settings before its powerful new “Graph Search” function arrives.
By Rob Waugh | Yahoo! News

Facebook quietly issued a warning this week to its UK users – reminding people to check privacy settings before its powerful new “Graph Search” function arrives.

Graph Search will be here in days – but Facebook’s warning does little to explain the power of its new tool, which makes it easy for people to find old photographs, even ones hidden from your Timeline.

Privacy group Electronic Frontier Foundation has described the new search function as “creepy”.

Users in the UK will be able to use it within days – to use the powerful search tool, people simply have to change their settings to “U.S. English”.
