That was wholesome and refreshing.

This is one of the reasons I use the Keepa plugin. Shows a price history chart right on the Amazon.com product page. E-mails me if my price target is hit. I believe there are other, similar, free services.

>how do they get found then?

In the near-to-medium term future, the answer is socials and emails.

>#6 shot

How long until an ammunition manufacturer re-brands #6 to "drone shot"?

Has anyone been watching drone warfare videos coming out of Ukraine? The drone arms race is fascinating. Pilots are flying kamikaze drone bombs precisely into weak spots: tank engine covers, turret skirts, through enemy building windows, even flying into tank hatches. Russians started building metal sheds over their vehicles, which are now called "turtle tanks". It isn't stopping the drone pilots, who fly dozens of drones each day.
Russians then introduced signal jammers. Ukrainian drone manufacturers are working to introduce AI which will identify and guide the drone to it's target autonomously. AI drones will be equipped with local map files and will therefore not need GPS.

Hardware & Technology / Retailers rolling our employee body cameras

"...equipping some store employees with body cameras to thwart shoplifting and keep customers and employees safe."

Ugh.

Waymo is testing in Austin and announced service to begin later this year. I'm looking forward to it. Getting around here is like driving straight into a Mad Max movie.

Most users will capitulate. Netflix, Spotify, etc... only needed to be slightly more convenient than pirating to be successful.

That's about as close as it gets.

It's never been a better time to be a tree. Well, except for the pesky extreme weather swings.

>they could launch an assassin drone fitted out with the leeching feature in Ukraine and have it follow power lines to the Kremlin.

That's wild, and makes total sense.

13
>Texas electricity prices soared almost 100-fold as a high number of power-plant outages raised concerns of a potential evening shortfall. 

So that's why I received an automated e-mail stating I am on track for higher than usual electricity charges, along with a failure to explain why.

What caused your bill to change?

The weather has been similar to this time last year,
and may not have affected your bill.

>retail operation on the side

luckily for AMZN, the retail operation is generating massive amounts of data, which they'll use to train their AI. Equal only to Google, META, and Tik Tok?

>*almost*

What was the deal breaker?
