I am very frightened/interested in what this would be like when I'm in some areas in Detroit.

Turn left at crack house on corner, Smacky Joe having sale on meth, Shaquonda having 2 for 1 sale... Make u-turn when possible.

Mangoose: Do people actually use siri as opposed to the internet which you need to be connected to when you might want to use siri?


I work with a woman who uses Siri. She sits at a computer with an internet connection and a keyboard and uses Siri on her phone to search the internet. Sometimes, when Siri just isn't getting it, I type her search in and show it to her. She still uses Siri. I hate her.

CVS doens't need advertising as every Rx refill requires you to make 4 trips to the store anyway.

bunner: This has been an amazingly successful business model in America.


Not just America. Read up on what has been done to the CRTC up in Canada over the past decade (the CRTC is the Canadian version of the FCC). IIRC Australia has been another extremely egregious offender for regulating in favor of media moguls.

Also... your tax dollars get to pay for writing, enforcing and prosecuting all these ridiculous laws that only serve to make rich people richer. Oh and don't forget the tax breaks.

They should all be paired up, have their anuses sewn together then force fed Taco Bell and Popeye's chicken so the greasy burning poop gets pushed back and forth until they explode.

I'm hoping it's not an April Fool's joke, because when my cell phone eventually lights up with an obnoxious ad while I'm driving, I want to intentionally crash, feign being frightened, and squeeze the ad & phone companies through the civil court juicer.

Leela: "Didn't you have ads in the 20th century?"

Fry: "Well sure, but not in our dreams! Only on tv and radio...and in magazines...and movies. And at ball games, on buses, and milk cartons, and t-shirts, and bananas, and written on the sky. But not in dreams! No sirree."

Godamned triple, quadruple, quintuple dipping bastards. You pay an arseload for the stupid phones, lappy's tablets, etc then another arseload for the services and then even MORE for "specialty" features that should have been included in the first place and THEN they inundate you with non stop commercials. Then they SCREAM bloody murder that they aren't making enough money because of "pirates" and send their army lawyers to bum rape your granny.

Pricks.

Dick Gozinya: And most of you idiots will think nothing of this, because otherwise you might have missed getting 50 cents off a pack of paper towels. You'll gladly trade your privacy for some cheap coupons for shiat you don't need.

Ironically though, the same people will go home and biatch about the invasiveness of advertising because your DVR wont let you skip commercials anymore, or that blue-ray you just bought has 5 minutes of unskippable ads at the beginning.


We are all really glad that you take time out of your busy schedule to come be smug on the internet. Please continue enlightening us as to why we are all idiots and you are so much better than us.

If there is one thing I need more of in this life it's more advertisements.  I long for the day when I have to sit through a 60 sec laxative commercial before my car will start.

They may not do targeted ads directly in the voice instructions, but we can be sure they're at least considering using all that mined data about you to path you around places you're likely to spend money.  God knows how much money they could rake in by making everyone drive past the billboards and storefronts of the highest bidders.

At least, I'm pretty sure this is why Siri keeps giving me directions to gay bars and sex toy shops.

So you forgo the superiority and convenience of GPS directions simply to avoid something that might happen some day in the future?

Carousel Beast: bunner: We, as a nation, don't make sh*t anymore.

Except for the part where you're droolingly, retardedly incorrect, you're spot-on.


Except for the part where you probably cherry pick statistics and think that being a dime store  insult artist from your mommy's sewing room, you almost sound like a smart person.  I mean, that is your point to this offering top this discussion, isn't it?  Being a baselessly arrogant twat to let everybody know smart you must be?  Pissy, rude dildo does not equal educated.  Honest.

Here's the deal.

We, as a nation, don't make sh*t anymore.

The only money is in trying to sell crap from someplace else to people who can't afford to buy it, and the people who import it are assured by people who done been ta kollij, that the way to do this is to hammer the piss out of the public 24/7 with a noise floor of ads on A/V capable media appliances.

As soon as they realize the growing serf class can't afford sh*t, they'll get fired by the people who bought the ads who will then  scramble to find cheaper and more effective ways to sell slave wage manufacured doo daddery to poor people.  Meh.

That's pants-on-head retarded right there. I hate noisy coworkers. My buddy next to me either whistles or sings quietly in farking Spanish. Or is on the phone in Spanish with a bunch of customers who apparently are deaf.

fark, I hate this job.

Lizardking: Yet another reason to be happy I chose Android over i-anything. Waze is one of the best GPS apps I have ever used.


You're happy to use Android over iPhone because of a shiatty "feature" that probably won't end up on the iPhone but is already incorporated in the app you use? Interesting...

The Truman Show was a great movie, and this reminds me of something Truman's wife would have said to him in order to plug a product.
