Oh my god, finally a season with only one new season (New Game) for me. Now I have more time to knock stuff off of my on-hold list. I'd be watching Jigoku Shoujo but I only had time to watch the first season literally years ago because of the--*Drum roll*--on-hold crap. Happy day.

Although, knowing me I'll probably end up watching another show because I'm a crazy person.

I feel like we already mostly have that. Like I'm down with wifi-enabled things that can talk to each other and be controlled from my phone, but it's unnecessary that those things should be connected to the whole internet and at the mercy of others. If I'm not at my house then I don't need to talk to my dishwasher. That stuff is good but only up to a point.

Yeah, definitely not that integrated. But, the idea of doing some crazy hand signal in front of a sensor in your bathroom that starts your dishwasher sounds pretty awesome to me. Or having an AI system wired throughout your house that you customize to your preferences, like some Jarvis shit. But then you'd find out the AI is secretly sending pictures of your ass to the government, so eh.

But if you're vacationing all the way in Alola, how will you know if you're dishes are clean unless you can remotely access your dishwashers full spectrum camera?!

360 camera with ultra zoom that also plays Mozart.

Part of me wants a future where everything is integrated and convenient

Anyone getting in on the steam sale?

Bought stardew valley and I'm shocked how good it looks on a large computer monitor. I was initially going to wait and play it when I had a switch but since it looks nice on a large display I'll just play it on PC.

having a huge tv in the bedroom is a weird thing... sounds awesome at first but then its sorta like, its there always
I don't disagree but I live in shared accommodation so its not like I'd have anywhere else to put it.

"tr*mp TV is now live, confirm that you have watched the daily donnycast to unlock TV usage privileges. You may use your smartkeurig to make your morning coffee once the ad is finished playing. Sorry, your eggs went bad, consider updating to our premium package to allow your smartfridge to cool at temperatures below 50. Speaking of temperature, it is currently 84 degrees in your apartment, smart thermostat servers are undergoing maintenance.

That sounds awesome and I hope I never have to experience it.

Fuck that future right in its mouth and asshole and then mouth again.

Don't need it don't want it. And I'm scared it's gonna be a thing every damn day. Part of me wants a future where everything is integrated and convenient, but another part knows government and big corporations would cash the fuck in on that and ruin all possibilities of comfort without surveillance.

The Walking Dead Michonne

HIGHLY recommended. Such a good one. <3

I'll probably get in on the sale. Anything under $5, at least. All the games I actually want cost more, though. Oh well.

Having an incredibly old Macbook Pro helps cut down on the moneyzz but I had to pass on many games.

Decided to get Monaco and The Walking Dead Michonne (cause I LOVE TT walking dead series). Was also gonna get Game of Thrones and Tales of Borderlands but saving the latter until I play through borderlands 2 for the lore and Game of Thrones I'm a bit iffy about if it's not canon

Many reasons not to fuck with any of that, so I very strictly do not. I download any firmware patches on my computer and update via usb stick when I need to. None of my TVs have ever even known that I had internet.

That vizio scandal I linked was especially fucked up, because it was sending pixel data from the screen, meaning they saw what you were doing no matter what you had plugged into it, tv/cable/dvd/games/photos or no. And people just shrugged it off like "lol welp glad that's over" and kept buying their shit. Never.

Also the usual dystopian paranoia re: your ISP or whoever being able to cripple your shit remotely for whatever reason they see fit. Or push ads on you. Fuckityfuck no. I superdon't fuck with IOT anything, ever.

Thank you kindly, but I have a strict no-internet policy when it comes to TVs.

Why I'm trying to avoid smart TVs like the plague. Fuck 'em.
