737MAX ^ 2??
Hopefully the new improbved model doesn't have c/g problems which could render it unstable in flight so these unmaned vehicles become Skynet bombers...

My father worked with a slide rule and protractor in the Skunk Works @ Lockheed. They knew how to properly design planes.
The design of this plane is do bad its like it's held together with SW, bailing wire and snot.
Damn sure we'll never fly one. How all involved haven't been sacked escapes me.
I called my brother on FarceTime and heard him say "Alexa turn music off".
I immediately followed up his utterance with "Alexa order 600 rolls of toilet paper".
2 hours after our call I got a rather terse email from said brother with a screenshot of his Amazon cart with -- 600 rolls of toilet paper ready to be purchased.
Putting these privacy invading devices in hotel rooms should be a right giggle!
Wouldn’t you like to... Die in my bug riddled airplane?*
We can crash along with automatic systems that did us in...
Oh we can die, we can die..
There’s ZERO chance anyone we know and our family will EVER be on one. Unsafe at any altitude!

You've obviously not looked too far into the business practises of many takeaways in village and town centres then? They all play the same game, in their case the public gets food poisoning/rats &/or roaches in shop then it is summarily closed down. Their wife/son/daughter/brother/etc. etc. then opens a "new place" in the exact same location.
Whack-a-mole is the game, phone spamming is the name.
Anything coming from 0843 is a spammer. ICO get a clue bag!
We at work have gotten particularly good at winding up Microsoft Support that calls in our office. Current record is more than 12 mins feeding them utterly random twaddle before they melt, curse and hang up.
The Met Office blown billions and still cannot tell us a reliable weather prediction, or a semi-estimated weather prediction.
All this newfangled crap is good for is making the vendors rich.
How about we take the £93M and apply it for taking better care of in-need OAP's, etc or hiring more doctors, nurses or doing upkeep on our hospitals first!
My Mum is 84 and suffering from Alzheimer's more and more every day.
Given she can barely use the PC, even though it's got good A/C on it, this will likely lead to my installing SuSE (or equiv) on it next time I am in front of her PC.
Not that she may recall she still has it.
I’ve been quite unwell and staying in Wrexham Park hospital in Berkshire. The county operator is Frimley Trust of the NHS.
All the nurses stations and roll around computers I personally saw being used are still on it.
Not a single sight of Citrix from my entering A&E to Observation unit and then onto a Ward had it.
Sadly the HW they have is pretty up to date even if the screens aren’t.
Almost worrying times ahead.
Our company doesn't do payroll, even though there's a venerable army of HR and Finance people. Who the @£$% knows what they all do all day. When you approach them with a question, they tell you to contact ADP. So you do and you're told "our app only works with IE 10". Not 11, not 9, not even Edge -- IE 10.
Thus if you need to know what's on your payslop, or what deductions, or G*d forbid your end of year PAYE info, you have to run IE 11 in IE 10 "bassackwards compatibilty mode" or you're blocked from even logging onto their site.
Don't even think about Firefox, Safari or Chrome "unsupposed and insecure" is the message from ADP regarding them.
Deserve to have the beejezus fined out of them and we cancelled our card and trip booked during the August- September hack.
Well Sherlock if the bad guys have your personal details/ address and likely your travel dates then can burglyof your home be far behind!
