In ten years the smartphone will be obsolete, you're going to be directly connected to the internet through your brain. This isn't a joke. How much do you think that will cost? I'll guess $15,000.

It's real. Laugh all you want, it's going to be happening. People are going to have cranial implants in 10 years. For a bet's sake, I'd say 15 years to be safe and offer 2/1.

The matrix is 20 years away, just waiting on computing power advancements too.

I'm pretty sure we'll all have built in body cams. Which, obviously, the government will hack and/or the TOS will say Google has the rights to access all of the data for purely benevolent purposes.

Cons: Big biz/gov will monitor everything you say and do.

Pros: Never again will you see something that could get a thousand retweets and not have time to take a picture.

We'd make that trade of in a heartbeat.

I discovered a huge bright green spider on my jacket yesterday. We took a picture, but it was hard to get a good shot. It also had two pseudo eyes on its thorax, reddish pink with yellow pupils. I bet it was very possibly poisonous with it's bright colors and possibly never discovered. Possible fame for discovering it didn't seem worth more than the odds of it dying in captivity within 24 hours. Ive never heard of such a spider before, odds are it was just as well common.

Added: Whatever it was, nothing is even close in a google image search using the description I gave.

I only suffered a short internet and cable outage.

I heard one of the reporters ask someone who lost a lot of stuff, "Do you feel lucky?"

All I could think of was the Clint Eastwood line from "Dirty Harry", while he has his gun pointed at a guy. Didn't turn out to be too lucky.

Google has an actual image search. I tried it on a fuzzy image of something flying around a flowering plant, but the image wasn't clear enough for it to match anything.
