Right now, the internet works good enough. Better wait til its broken, before changing its governance.
Cryptography computations typically run with special hardware flags to avoid the known pitfalls, including issues with speculative execution (see e.g. ssbd, psfd). These computations are a lot less likely to be affected by this new bug.
I'm not sure how far this extends to login fields, but they could technically be protected too. Only thing to worry about applying protection are performance hits, which I doubt would be that big, if applied with precision.
If you ask the people who dressed up AI as something exclusively-futuristic about a century ago, their mind would be blown by this pattern recognition ability.
You can either keep up the chase of making AI always something inherently unachievable, which I think is pointless, or go with the current sense that AI is just a synonym for modern machine learning.
Am I the only one who's using Windows because of a (crippling) gaming addiction? Also its rather convenient that most Linux tools work on Windows too.
I'm glad that game platform compatibility and VM tech improved a lot in the last years, so that I can ditch Windows soon and dodge the Windows 11 mess entirely.

If you gonna like it or not, AI-generated imagery is going to stay, since its far too convenient to ignore.
Sorry, I wasn't accounting for the additional issues US schools may have. What I meant is that schools often do a poor job in keeping kids motivated and interested in learning at all. Today, the difference it makes to kids is that the school isn't even the place to meet your friends anymore, since you can keep up with them via social media.
