Sometimes I entertain myself by randomly scrolling around and across google maps, following tiny roads and looking for interesting structures and shapes.

Today I came across this:

+44° 9' 17.85", -118° 13' 39.97"

+44° 9' 17.85", -118° 13' 39.97"

The site is located in Oregon, close to just about nothing, though there is a road leading up to it from a small private air field called Lockhart Airfield.

If anyone knows what it is, please let me know! :)

TSUKUBA, Japan – A robotic suit that reads brain signals and helps people with mobility problems will be available to rent in Japan for $2,200 a month starting Friday – an invention that may have far-reaching benefits for the disabled and elderly.

Not only is the product super cool in so many respects, but the name of the company??? Cyberdyne??? When is Skynet coming online??

I just got a very funny email from facebookemail.{com} with a wording that is just too off to be true:

A message to tell the user that as an admin he can approve a request to join his group requested to join the group “[cut out for privacy]”.As an admin of this group, you can approve this request.

What do you make of it? :D

So Microsoft is partnering up to deliver the ‘next generation shopping experience’ throughout malls, supermarkets and grocery stores in America, through the amazing MediaCart. It’s futuristic and fun and will of course lend it self to all kinds of free-shopping-hacks. It seems the basic functionality will be to provide a sort of in-store gps navigation to find items and manage the sum of your shopping, while, no surprise, delivering target ads based on previous shopping patterns. The operator (shopper) locates the item he/she wants to buy, scans its bar-code with the on-board scanner and places it in the cart. When leaving the store, the sum of the scanned items is transferred to the register and the shopper pays the amount due.

I love the futurism of it but the whole ad-thingy is as always scary… also I can’t help but wonder what prevents the user from NOT scanning an item and just placing it in the cart as he/she shops away. If you look through the cheesy marketing video on the link below, I bet that’s where that smug smile is coming from at 04:35… “I stuck in an extra six-pack and you will neeeever find out, muhahahaha”…

Me being negative?
