The Future According to Google

 They sure know how to make it sound scary.
"...supercomputer powers can give us "senses" we didn't know were possible. "Think of it as augmented humanity" he suggested."

Schmidt, being one of the most influential people in one of the most influential tech companies, sure knows how to freak people out about the future technology.

He's making a habit out of it. I posted this quote a few months ago:

“We don’t need you to type at all. We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less know what you’re thinking about.”
Seriously Scmidt, even if it's true, you don't have to sound like a creeper when you say it.

If it IS creepy, it's better to know it than to go forward into it blindly.

So true! By no means am I saying he should disguise the truth. But coming from a guy in his position, you'd think he'd work a little harder in not making things sound so creepy.

Honestly, I don't think technology is really as creepy as he makes it sound.
