Yes. I will be doing nothing this week but checking up on E3. It’s kind of mandatory. It’s surprising then that tech journalists can focus on anything else.
U.S. FIGHTS IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Fighting with nuclear weapons and brute force is so 50 years ago. Now we have computers. Probably about time then that the United States got with the program.
On Friday, it was revealed that President Obama had ordered increased cyberattacks on Iran’s main nuclear facilities using a worm called “Stuxnet,” which was developed in part with Israel.
In a way I am proud of our country for keeping up with new technologies, but at the same time I’m not sure I want a virus being used for military warfare. We all know that thing is going to escape somehow and become self-aware.
NINTENDO STILL WANTS US TO BUY THE WII U
E3 is this week! Can you tell I’m excited?
In a surprise pre-E3 presentation on Sunday, Nintendo revealed some developments in its Wii U technology (yeah that’s still a thing).
The company will be announcing the final product along with other features during this year’s convention. Some things that are already making rounds on the Internet include a black Wii, the final design of the Wii U, a social network through the console called the Miiverse, and a pro controller that looks … familiar, for lack of a better term.
FACEBOOK TO LAUNCH SERVICE FOR KIDS
I have seen my fair share of young kids on Facebook. Those were the moments that I regretted every picture I ever put up on the site. And yes, this is despite the fact that Facebook does not allow kids under the age of 13 to make profiles.
This could all change soon though, as the company is currently testing under-13 technology that would allow kids to go on the site if they connect with their parents’ accounts.
I’m not saying that Facebook shouldn’t allow kids on regardless of technology, but they really shouldn’t. I just know that you can’t really stop it.
SPEAKING OF FACEBOOK…
I know a lot of you probably don’t care anyway considering you put your phone numbers and addresses on the website.
Privacy? What’s that? You’re making my job too easy.
