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.

>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?

What was the deal breaker?

Water Cooler / Consumer-grade exoskeleton for walking assistance

900 watts of walking assistance or resistance, depending on your use case. That's more than my electric bike. Youtube reviews seem to focus on hiking, running, jumping and resistance training, but I think they'd do even better marketing to seniors.

Last night a friend in his late 20's asked me if I had been following the Helldivers story. It seems to be everywhere at the moment.

Yep, that looks like a good way to kill off a popular title.

Getting better by the month. VR video games are going to be amazing in 20 years.

Helldivers 2 is definitely popular. It was released in Feb. and had it's highest concurrent player count 2 months ago (458k). Still has 100k+ concurrent players. It is loosely based on the Starship Troopers movies, I believe.
