Everything is ready for a fine dystopian future. All the dystopian tropes from movies and books seems to become true.

British egg producers saddened by Google salad emoji update

Think of the meat eaters!

Won't someone think of the meat eaters? This is not inclusion. I prefer my salads with ham'n stuff.

Pathetic countries with no independence

It's pathetic of these countries not to be able to prosecute the criminals themselves. Instead they deliver them to the US like any vassal state would do.

Audiophiles have really taken to the warm digital tone of streaming music

NanoMeter

High End Audio

Is not over. High end audio is becoming more expensive by the day. In the 80s a high end amplifier could cost £ 1,000 - 4,000. Now it's not unusual with £ 10,000 - 100,000. The good thing is mid fi is what would have been considered high end in the 80s and it costs between £ 300 - 2,000.

Hello DARKNESS, my old friend. I've come to talk with you again... about a 10,000-pixel alien-hunting camera

NanoMeter

10,000 pixels?

Not that impressive these days. Perhaps in 1993.

GCHQ boss calls out Russia for 'industrial scale disinformation'

Corrupt criminals

That's probably because Russia is controlled by a group of corrupt criminals.

"The only gay in the village"

Perhaps not the best time to be "The only gay in the village". Soon they will start receiving gay advertising in the mail and so on. Not everyone will have it as easy as Daffyd Thomas.

21% blacks and 9% hispanics?

Black and africans are 13% of the population, while hispanics are 17% in the US. I'd say the blacks are more than represented at Amazon. Worse with hispanics.

Mozilla whips out Rusty new Firefox Quantum (and that's a good thing)

NanoMeter

I loved using Firefox as my main browser for a long time, but had to ditch it for Vivaldi. Even Vivaldi is now starting to get bloated and I might go back to Firefox if it can be more careful with the memory usage. They also need to do something about the annoying Plugin Container crashes before I move back to Firefox.

China's 'future-proof' crypto: We talk to firm behind crazy quantum key distribution network

NanoMeter

Backdoors for sure

Rest of the world won't touch the crypto if it got backdoors - which I am pretty sure it has even if they deny it. The Chinese government won't allow it if it doesn't have backdoors.
