Japanese white collar workers are already being replaced by artificial intelligence — Quartz

Automation isn’t just about manufacturing and transportation.

Robots, so it seems are slowly creeping into human territory more and more everyday. If they can replace white collar jobs such as insurance underwriters, there is reason to believe that people manning conveyors in manufacturing companies and every other singular-purpose, knowledge-base job worker are prone to robot invasion. How useful this trend will be for the average Joe remains to be seen.

Facebook Live Notification Just Became Intrusive: Live Video now pops-up and autoplays while you browse your feed

Facebook Live Notification Just Became Intrusive: Live Video now pops-up and autoplays while you browse your feed (because OMG one of your friend is livestreaming and it immediately becomes the most important thing in the world at that moment!

Facebook probably thinks that checking these videos in our own time is a luxury we no longer deserve these days! Ugh.

Look, I’m all for notifications. I get that. Video is live. It’s a Facebook friend. But don’t push it too hard on me. Notifying me via a pop-up banner is enough. You don’t need to play the video in my face while I’m doing other things.

Plus, who’s to say that crazy people won’t abuse this? Who’s to stop someone from doing something offensive or insensitive or inappropriate via Facebook Live video? And I don’t even have a say whether I see it or not because Facebook shoves it in my face like I don’t have freewill or something. What is the purpose of the autoplay anyway? To jack up video count/plays? Whatever their reason, I don’t like it — and this is coming from someone who’s been on Facebook for a long time yet never really joined the “I hate Facebook, I’m quitting Facebook” bandwagon. I’ve been pretty flexible, adaptable and tolerant with all the changes that happened over the years but this one is just too much.

Has this ever happened to you or is it just me? If this hasn’t happened to you, could it be a bug/isolated and temporary issue that I just happened to come across?

Let me know in the comments.

‘Minecraft’ Is Getting a Massive Update On PlayStation and Xbox — Tech – TIME

With all this talk about updates to Minecraft‘s Java, Windows and Pocket Edition versions, what about the consoles, currently missing a slew of coveted PC version features? Microsoft just unveiled a trove of new elements — some long-awaited, others bolt-from-the-blue — designed to shore up the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the company’s freeform builder…

Forget Not Talking. We Don’t Read Anymore (Like We Used To Do)

tldrIt’s very disheartening to see very few people actually reading these days. People’s attention spans are so short they couldn’t even read through a 5-minute article anymore. It’s like you automatically have to write tl;dr:’s if you intend to churn out a paragraph of decent length.

I mean sure, we all know how a picture is “worth a thousand words” ergo a video is probably worth a bajillion words, but I’m pretty sure people who don’t read not for lack of time or energy but simply for lack of motivation and a sense of value in how they consume written word is most likely missing out on the joys of literature.

And I don’t even mean classic literature. Even daily prose can be filled with awe-inspiring content that may well feed one’s mind, heart and soul.

But I guess there’s no going back. Nostalgia is a sad beeyotch.

Oh and before I forget: tl;dr: Just a random rant about how lazy (read: non) readers people have become.

Hey everyone! How’s it going? This blog has been quiet for a while, I know. I’ve been “thinking too much” which is not something a writer should so compulsively if he/she wants to ever put out something, right? That’s what happened.

Meanwhile, I’m happy to announce that I’ve just released an album (in the midst of all that thinking — and I’m still thinking..) I’ve embedded the Spotify playlist here.

Listen to my newly-released “Music Machines Miracles” album for FREE on SPOTIFY! Now available on iTunes/Amazon/Google Play Music/Apple Music/Amazon Prime Music. Thirty (30) cover songs ranging from Pop/Indie/Rap/RNB/Acoustic/Rock/Alternative/EDM. Share and listen with your friends! Go on over to iTunes and leave a review — I would appreciate it! <3
