I hear this new variant of the chip uses AR to replace fox news with teletubbies.

/would anyone even notice?

Pfarked upping the trail size to 44,000 is definitely them trying to hit marks sooner. Given the cost, they're pretty confident they have a workable vaccine.

MS also gotten the microchip down to 150 microns, so that's pretty much ready to go as well.

So, with the 5G rollout, we should be positioned perfectly.

I like to point out to the qanon believers posting savethechildren memes that Bill Gates vaccine chips would prevent sex trafficking.

Such a huge upgrade would be hard to miss.

Give Bill some credit.  He protects Windows way better than Trump protects us.

China says they'll have their chips ready early next month.
Gates is probably irrelevant in the whole covid fight.

The cellphone in your pocket is a far better tracking tool than the chip you had implanted in your cats and dogs.

Yeah, my current projected timeline is trials continuing as they are now, production starting early next year for distribution to essential workers in the spring, and second-tier kinda-essential folks like me in the summer.

Honestly doesn't sound that bad, or that far away tbh, given the scale of the effort.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: Pfarked upping the trail size to 44,000 is definitely them trying to hit marks sooner. Given the cost, they're pretty confident they have a workable vaccine.


If a phase 3 trial had started injecting people in July then they might be in a position to release preliminary results before November. For most of these you need to give 2 doses about 28 days apart, then it takes a few more weeks for the immune system to respond to that second dose. Then you can start collecting valid data. When a person does become infected, it takes several weeks to find out how severely the disease affected them (which matters because there's a good chance that a vaccine will only be successful at reducing the disease severity rather than preventing an infection entirely).

Any company which is still in the "enrolling participants" stage in September will not be able to deliver good results before the election. Their only options will be "still in progress" or "oops, severe adverse effects so we're halting the trial".

Oh, he's only open sourcing knowledge of the covid virus towards end goal of producing a vaccine by making all data available to vaccine manufacturers.

He's also dumped 125 million into the project and then is running an accelerator that finds promising treatments and vaccines and gives them resources to expand their attempts.

So Bill gates has done a ton and continues to do a ton that is keeping people alive and expedite the development of a vaccine.

The first round of vaccinations will be in November, They will require a second shot in December. Nobody should consider themselves vaccinated against Covid19 until January. There will likely be a half million dead before this is all over.

Is this the option to replace whole shows with shows or just replacing anchors with teletubbies, while still in the Fox News setting?

See that's a complicated question but it comes down to the license your OEM picked for you during the inoculation.  GatesChip Home Edition will substitute the whole broadcast for equivalent teletubby episodes.  GatesChip Pro will allow you the choice of either having the actors replaces with teletubbies or the audio track replaced with teletubbies.  GatesChip Enterprise will give your local administrator the option to set it up to your region's specifications.

Not for long.  QAnon doesn't actually care about preventing sex trafficking, so they'll quickly revert to wailing about "mah freedumbs!"

They will say that since gates is involved it helps the traffickers find children and will turn off if anyone else tries to use them.

I leave my phone off when outside of my place.  Government don't need to track my ass.

Funny you should mention your ass.  You ever question the real reason they recommend you go to the proctologist annually?

And I can leave it at home when I walk up the block to make the occasional cash transaction. Do people really think location is what those chips would primarily track? The more likely scenario is that you would need the chip to enter a business or board transportation, and that chip would also be tied to your blockchain bank account. Prohibition should have taught us that the government hates being left out of transactions, and now they have the technology to solve that problem.

What does the microchip do? I want one where an AI takes over my body for work then wakes me when it's time to go home.
