Is artificial intelligence a threat to human existence in the same way an asteroid could wipe out life on Earth?
My iMac is getting fixed
So I have gone down the road of using the next stage of PC evolution – the tablet and the phone. I’m on day seven of the experiment and it is going great. I do miss a few things, such as the Dragon Dictate. Otherwise I am quite happy to be working in an Extra PC environment. It really is ‘Extra Personal’ using these sorts of devices. It is more emersive when you are touching the screen and using gestures to get things done.
Today was a day of editing video. I used Pinnacle on the iPad to edit video I shot on the iPhone. Moved the clips to the iPad using AirDrop and then I could edit to my hearts content in the video editing app. I was even able to upload faster using the 4G connection on my iPhone than I could using the wifi at home.
I’m really enjoying the TV series Trapped
The series is set in Iceland and is all about a body being found in the water as a ship was coming in. So the ship is detained in the harbour and older people also detained in the town by the foul weather. There is back story with a boy who got badly burned and blamed for a fire which killed his girlfriend. There’s political things going on in the background with regards selling land and making piles of money. More people get killed and there is also the side story of what’s going on with the youth of town. I’m watching it with the original language and subtitles, although they do sometimes speak English. There is also a human trafficking story with a couple of girls having been brought from Africa to work as sex slaves. I have watched eight episodes of the series so far and I have episodes nine and 10 ready and waiting in the BBC iPlayer.
