New Amazon robot Astro is looking for a space in your home.

I have no idea what it actually does, but it's coming anyway, apparently.

@malin Says right there what it does: It's looking for you. I guess we can extrapolate that it's angry at you, or wants to harm you, once it finds you? I suppose in a few years we won't know how we managed to live without at least two of these in our home.

@malin
it spies.

btw, seen the new manga chapters? when mjr kutsunagi dies? is now an essay on full cyberisation x genetic enhancement. shirow and co share interesting perspectives.

are we less human the less flesh and blood we become?

@nergal gits? Never seen it.

I'm not worried about being human. I already have metal parts in my body. I just want to make sure I'm controlling any enhancements.

@malin
in gits they call cracks hacks. if i recall right, there are eye hacks, cyberbrain hacks, interceptor, puppetry, ghost hacks.

this series is so worth diving into for me.

@nergal This is pretty cool. I didn't even know there was a Ghost in the Shell series.

@malin
masamune shirow drew a manga. then in the 90s it became a series. the best cyberpunk after star trek tng?

gits taught me most i know about layered security and threat models.

@malin
psychopass taught me about electronic surveillance. sybil and panopticon especially.

@malin
it is very improbable that you will own enhancements. you will get them on lease.

@nergal I already got my enhancements:

peertube.linuxrocks.online/w/4

I'll get some more if ever I can find some place to stick them in.

@nergal Natural magnets, sadly, have no on/ off state. The main effects are just sensations; in cities, there are a lot of electromagnetic fields all around us.

@malin
the guy in the movie used a circuit breaker i think. think he had to recharge the batteries every night. the wires run through his body? i should watch sleight again.
