I just watched an episode of the new X-Files series. The onscreen synopsis said something about a cat-and-mouse game with the collision of AI and automation. (Nice reminder that they are two different things...) Apparently at some point -- I didn't see the beginning of the episode -- Mulder skipped tipping thru some restaurant's app, and things just escalated quickly until it was like Skynet was sending its full arsenal after him and Scully. Well, *a* full arsenal at least -- all sizes of drones, a robo-vacuum, cell phones, televisions, the engine computer on Scully's car, and dozens of little robots in the factory they were taking refuge in. Interesting and silly the way it all ended...

That's kind of relevant to my interests...I might have to catch it sometime.

I've been using an app for a local taxi service for fairly short rides, and each time when I rate the driver the app asks me "are you sure you don't want to tip your driver?" Maybe I'd better start 😆
