Walgreens is exploring new tech that turns your purchases, your movements, even your gaze, into data.

Walgreens is piloting a new line of “smart coolers”—fridges equipped with cameras that scan shoppers’ faces and make inferences on their age and gender. On January 14, the company announced its first trial at a store in Chicago in January, and plans to equip stores in New York and San Francisco with the tech.

Demographic information is key to retail shopping. Retailers want to know what people are buying, segmenting shoppers by gender, age, and income (to name a few characteristics) and then targeting them precisely. To that end, these smart coolers are a marvel.

If, for example, Pepsi launched an ad campaign targeting young women, it could use smart-cooler data to see if its campaign was working. These machines can draw all kinds of useful inferences: Maybe young men buy more Sprite if it’s displayed next to Mountain Dew. Maybe older women buy more ice cream on Thursday nights than any other day of the week. The tech also has “iris tracking” capabilities, meaning the company can collect data on which displayed items are the most looked at.

Crucially, the “Cooler Screens” system does not use facial recognition. Shoppers aren’t identified when the fridge cameras scan their face. Instead, the cameras analyze faces to make inferences about shoppers’ age and gender. First, the camera takes their picture, which an AI system will measure and analyze, say, the width of someone’s eyes, the distance between their lips and nose, and other micro measurements. From there, the system can estimate if the person who opened the door is, say, a woman in her early 20s or a male in his late 50s. It’s analysis, not recognition.

The distinction between the two is very important. In Illinois, facial recognition in public is outlawed under BIPA, the Biometric Privacy Act. For two years, Google and Facebook fought class-actions suits filed under the law, after plaintiffs claimed the companies obtained their facial data without their consent. Home-security cams with facial-recognition abilities, such as Nest or Amazon’s Ring, aPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

There's something called saturation mailing. They can pay the post office to basically send a catalog to every residential address in a zip code. In fact that's one of the ways in which USPS supports itself now.

I also get a lot of shit due to bugmen who lived at my place before me probably just giving their info to anyone who asks. If it's in their name I can return it as wrong address and that usually stops the catalogs from that company, but most of them are smart enough to say "current resident".

It's mostly catalogs for stores I would never go to because there's closer ones that everybody uses that are a million times better. Why do they bother collecting all this info if they still utterly fail to deliver me any relevant marketing? Maybe the real meta here is to figure out the least targeted demographic and do everything you can to pass as that.

You are an imbecile. First, this method was not at all necessary to ensure that the two kids would not have HIV. Second, gene editing has a way of affecting far more than just the one thing you were focused on. There is a reason why there are extensive ethical guidelines for gene editing and it is precisely because the side effects can be horrible. He didn't discover this gene either. Scientists have already known about these genes and been conducting research.

Honestly executing him might be necessary to ward off similar idiots from engaging in amateur gene editing. This guy basically had next to no clue but just enough money and dumb confidence to go edit some genes with utter disregard for the professional, ethical, and medical guidelines in the field.

Gene editing is not a fucking toy and just because you believe yourself to be a clever lad blessed with superior vision doesn't give you a fucking license to randomly fuck around in a field where you have no actual expertise.

this is one really late reply but yes, it would. even so it would be fun.

there are DOS programs for more secure stuff like SSH though.


You could connect your PC via serial to a small ARM SBC, basically use it as switchboard to connect out into the wide world with an reasonably secure and up to date ssh from an up-to-date OS. Even a Pi Zero W or equivalent would be more than enough for that, and you could profit from it being capable of using wireless. Basically like an old school shell account, just at home.


Offtopic but I've put Gentoo on mine, if you recall me from a few weeks ago. First I cross-compiled with my PC but that was kinda rough as apparently there are a few problems with qemu arm+gentoo and crosscompiling. Then I realized that my smartphone is basically a very fast ARM Linux computer, and now I cross-compile with my phone, using very little electricity. This truly is the future. Now I wanna get a smaller LED-backlight LCD for it (yeah I know you people love your CRTs and all but I wanna save electricity) and get most of my computing done in the sub 15W range. First I thought it's kinda stupid and will not make me more productive, then I caught myself having written a bunch of tools and now I started on a text-based game. Amazing how productive and also relaxed you get when there's not always a browser window somewhere. This is actually good for me psychologically, who would've thought.



>Wouldn't that be insecure as fuck?

Actually it's not.

DOS doesn't have a TCP/IP stack. There are no services listening to get exploited. There is no multitasking to hide things in the background. You can't even ping a DOS machine unless its running a packet driver+something to respond to the ICMP requests.

When you want to go on irc you load your packet driver and the client software.

The client software (irc, telnet, what ever) has bring its own tcp/ip implementation. Once you close that client program the machine doesn't even have an IP anymore. The packet driver is just an API for your software to put/get packets off the NIC card.



I got 2 socket A motherboards and 2 CPUs, although only one complete computer (RAM, PSU, hard drive, etc).

The main issue is that the heatsink is tied to the motherboard and the fan is tied to the heatsink, and the PSU is some noname chinkshit with a broken fan and dents on the outer body which I wouldn't trust not to catch fire.

Nonetheless it runs gnu+linux just fine and you can even use the less bloated WMs like dwm and i3 without hiccupus, although personally I use an empty X server + xterm + tmux. The GPU is some integrated VIA shit on the motherboard.

By the way the higher steppings of some of those CPUs are 64 bit and have SSE2, I doubt yours counts since it's a stepping 1, and I don't know if CPU-Z has that info in its database, but you can find out for sure by booting linux and cat'ing /proc/cpuinfo .

Has anyone tried either StumpWM or CLFSWM (common lisp fullscreen window manager)?

I'd would like to use some stuff written in Lisp and these wm seemed bretty interesting, although probably not as good as other more used and supported ones.



I've used Stumpwm for several years now, it still has an active community.

If you like Ratpoison and writing Lisp it's pretty much the best thing out there.

CLFSWM is basically abandonware, though its model is very interesting. The frame layout is a tree where one node is always full screen (hence the name), displaying it and all its children. The user is free to refocus to any node on the tree. This basically removes the need for features like virtual desktops because any view you like can be contained in the frame tree.

You are a good man, I feel sorry for you



Mate you said yourself you don't belong here. Maybe in other threads there is a place for you, but what are you contributing to this one? You are just typing paragraph after paragraph of the same blackpill shit that anyone posting in this thread would have automatically thought of.


He's not that wrong, you people are trying to solve a social problem with technology. It will not work. You can bolt complicated shit onto the internet as much as you want, the only result you'll get is either ghost towns because nobody is going to bother with your complicated webshit or the same retards you see here and on reddit.

The problem is the people, not the technology. It's entirely possible to do well designed internet pages or social exchange places with the technology we already have, it simply does not work because of the people. You make a "free speech" place where people won't get booted because of thought crimes and it's overrun by retarded trolls, nazi-larpers and people with an agenda to subvert the place for whatever political or ideological reason in 0.5 seconds. The demographics of the internet have shifted, it used to be a bunch of nerdy white guys who at least usually knew somewhat what they were talking about and were well educated and technology-interested. That was the mindset that brought them to try this new things, which also weren't as profitable to abuse as they're now. The world has changed too. Capitalism, without an ideological enemy, has geared into overdrive and has started eating itself. Governments and corporations see the internet as this powerful but dangerous thing that has to be subverted/controlled and every bit of worth extracted from, (see turbo-capitalism) when back then, they didn't understand it and also didn't care. Things like that, all these things add to change the landscape from what it was. You won't get it back by bolting another protocol on top of all of it.



The purpose of that Internet of the old that you're talking about has been to find people who are into your niche thing, since the rest of the people thought you were a weird nerd. Now being a nerd is actually acceptable, so there's no need to be a recluse. So long as it's not about uncomfortable topics of course. You can sperg out over the newest NVIDIA graphics card or the newest web app all you want, there are millions of likeminded people for you. But if you mention, say, Cloudfare being a glorified MITM and issues associated with it, you're a conspiracy theorist that's against progress in $current_year. Worse yet, if you stay on the clearnet trying to talk about it, you'll also attract people you've mentioned that will dilute whatever it is you're trying to say. If technologically-minded people are still around, additional layers to get around are not a problem. It's that there are lots of socially acceptable and productive technological fields and topics to be autistic about instead, so who are you going to talk to in the first place? I also disagree that it's a social problem people are trying to solve here, it's a sub-problem of keeping stupidity out.

There are also ways to discuss what you want in the open, judging whether a person is in the know or not by their language and words. China, for example, has their "martian" cypher of varying complexity.

Amusingly, when I was piss broke I fit in perfectly here, then when through a series of essentially accidents where I ended up buying a bunch of bitcoin and then following Joe Kennedy Sr.'s rule "when the shoe shine bot begins giving you stock tips, it's tie to bail. Though in my case it was the hacks at the UK Daily Mail writing about Bitcoin daily that convinced me, and I ended up clearing a decent profit).

Anyway, my ASUS 33" went to shit, fucking thing arrvived broke and so I elected never to buy a monitor from the cocksuckers again. Now, I have one one Gsync (though there is a rumor that within next ~6 months, they are going to make a bunch more essentially "GSYNC" since the ones they put out update for on 15 Jan were all in alaphabetical order beginning w. "a" and "b."

Anyway, had a rampage VI motherboard for 6 weeks and for that time, it was fucking amazing. Not sure what it does that tohers motherboards don't, but just seemed to selvate everything. Them one night, without earning the fucker just began smoking. Sent it back, they gave SHEKELS BACK AND I got "fatality gear, Arock X299 Professional Gaming i9 XE." Still with my 64 GIGS of RAM and 7940 X. The ASUS Rampage VI was genuine fucking amazing, but this newer one may as well but an $80 fucking board from ali baba and would not be able to tell difference.

Anyway, gonna post some pics of the small "lab" have set up in the shit room over my garage where I can teach myself to make different types of wire, use the Rift and Vive, experiment with different shit, the flying yoke, wheel, etc.. Recall, fucking bitcoin was the biggest bubble since the fuckiig tulip in holland, and it you got out right before it fucking popped, when the dumb boomer shekels began flowing in, you did VERY fucking well. Consider me a robin hood who fucked ove rthe boomers.

Also, if you want to give me me shit bc I was a fucking dickhead and DID NOT buy 4 monitors of the same exact grand

Did the x86 tablet that can run linux die?

I'm interested in replacing smartphone usage with a candybar phone with removable battery + a 9inch tablet that can run linux, but I fear that this market died out.

5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



>You can run Linux on ARM though. ARM has better performance per watt. x86 is hot and requires massive heatsinks and gets poor battery life.

This is actually exactly the opposite of reality. x86 is specifically used in data centers because the performance PER WATT is what matters. Arm is only used because the ABSOLUTE power consumption is lower.



x86 is used in datacenters due to familiarity with x86 versions of Unix and backwards compatibility, not due to perf/W.

ARM and 386 clones have been trading blows in cherrypicked efficiency benchmarks for years. The P4 forced x86 to adopt efficiency practices.




>x86 is specifically used in data centers because the performance PER WATT is what matters.

Lolno, obscure manycore architectures like the Pezy chips have the best performance per watt, not that it matters anyway since many applications are offloading workloads to accelerators. In what could be considered the mainstream ISAs space PPC64 probably has the best performance per watt, and even then only in some performance metrics.

The reason why x86 is used in datacenters is because of the massive amount of code which exists for x86 due to its domination in the desktop space that naturally leads to software developers writing and tuning code for their x86 system which then needs to be run on an x86 server, because most software developers and build system managers are too fucking retarded to do any sort of non native development. Remember that many software developers don't even know what cmake or its equivalents are.

Size 177.96GB. I dare to say contains among the best books of their fields and are supposed not to repeat. It is a extremely well ordered collection by topic, and if you compare the size you soon see its value. Topics range from mathematics, physics, psychology, self improvement, survivalism, the best science fiction and fantasy literature, comics, magazines, and more. Magazines takes about 75 GB and there are many youtube videos, documentaries and conferences so you can exclude these if you want to. All books combined takes about 40 GB or so. But i really recommend downloading other stuff too since you can't really find it somewhere else easily. Did I mention is well sorted and contains only the best books?

I don't think very many are, make your own. If its tech, you can probably find it on libgen. As an added bonus, you are probably more likely to actually read them if you had to hunt for em.


I forgot what it was called, but that's why I expected a disorganized pile of shit. Maybe I'd bother if it was entirely tech related, but I already have plenty of that.

Looking through a collection has the appeal of sifting through human shit barehanded to recover enough corn for muffins.




Yea the signal to noise ratio in INFORMATICS is pretty bad. Only things in there I wanted were 2 of Mark A. Ludwig's books on dos viruses, and 2 on automata theory... so I grabbed them off libgen. Thanks for taking one for the team.


It's odd that this originally came from /lit/ because the literature selection in this torrent is very scattershot. You've got a bunch of random entry-level classics (and quite a few not-so-classics), you've got a section labelled "complex" with more entry-level books like Lolita, and then you've got a "prose" section with some of the most difficult to read books of all time. I have an inkling he hasn't read many of the books in his selection.



this, just pick the ones you need.

so how do I save my boobie vids without the nipples getting all corrupted and shit


Dunno what CERN did in that one infamous study but bitrot in modern hardware is not really common at all and it's much more likely that your storage hardware simply fails. There's such an heavy amount of CRC and ECC stuff going on in even the cheapest modern drives (who all use the same groups of controllers, firmware implementations etc. anyways, no real chance to save money by fucking things up there anymore) the chance that you silently get presented with a corrupted dataset is very, very low. Much more likely that the drive generates a reading fail because data failed checksumming. This is a problem imagined by software guys who don't know how the hardware side works. More likely are transmission errors because of dodgy NICs (*cough*realtek*cough*) and defective RAM but no filesystem will protect you from that.





<not using GNU/CPIO or pax (as defined in the POSIX) and then piping it into bzip2

LoL,,, what a winbabby or macfag you are.



>dodgy NICs (*cough*realtek*cough*)

What's the alternative except for Intel?

Not at 100 mW intensities.



I bet a 100mW IR laser will.
