Site barely launched and you are already thinking of the next acquisition ? Yikes!
In 8 years time, there will be no more PayPal, Skrill, Payoneer cashout methods, it will be direct transfers to our chip implants , most stuff online will be automated, AI support, offers, stuff customised to your preferences / trends, in other words human contact will be scarce, There will be USB devices, you plug to your computer and it will transmit data to and from your implanted chip, so sites will be able to pay you this way quite easily. You will be able to make direct deposits and withdrawals directly to your bank, this will probably be a lot easier for site owners, no more dealing with approving payment processors and headaches, and it is ONE payment method universally compatible.
Yes Darkstar!!, But have you thought of the counter-culture ??? (you probably didn't).
People will abandon their smartphones and loose interest in the internet and abandon that as well. Buying used clothes and Experimentation with hallucinogen drugs will be in!! again.
In replacement of the internet! love shops founded by Jeff Bezos will pop up on every street corner, While the man himself will sell his entire empire and hand out his profits among the poorest people in Africa. After he sold his empire he will move to Oklahoma and build his own shed from sustainable tree, And all his cars will be replaced by a bike due to his concerns for the global climate.
Damn!! forgot to take my medication, AGAIN!!!
What good will it do if people abandon internet, everything is internet now anyway, smart TV, smart radios, smart phones, smart watches, smart cars, smart shoes, even smart toilets People can abandon internet but they cannot abandon technology, it is basically forced upon you. Even if you decide to live in some remote cabin in some remote woods in some unheard of part of the world, you'd have to basically be undeclared to go unnoticed, you will still be forced to use chip implants unless you have someone feeding you, and taking care of you 100%, The problem with technology is that in the future it will be misused to control the masses. Only the politicians and money interests may be exempt from such policies.
Rod mentioned something along the lines of a social credit system, this makes sense, you will be judged continually, your actions will affect your "score" and balance on your implanted chip, if you burn toast, you will lose some points, if you left the seat up again, you lose credits, lose enough credits and you are punished. That's the society of tomorrow. What we see on social media today is only the tip of the iceberg.
you know i'm just joking around a bit.
just take a look at what the Chinese government are planning for the future by using total surveillance on it's population, It's like something taken out of a Black mirror episode.
If you are a good decent citizen and showing good values you will be given positive credit, social engineering at it's best, However in remote areas it will harder monitoring the citizens the same way.
Here in Denmark we got an offer from Huawei on designing our new public ID system which is to be rolled out in a couple of years, But the politicians were to afraid and gave the job to the Swedes instead, Hopefully not IKEA
Hm , u c , i c u 2... u leave traces after u ...
Maybe it was so , that it was the most qualified people who got the job , may be so , what u think...
I think you have no more comments …
Huawei's offer was cheaper, But i would also have chosen Ericsson!!!. If i remember correctly it was Ericsson who got the job.
