AI is one way better than us, but not constrained by human experience or expectations. No morality, no God, no sense of good and evil – an existential threat to humans. Like knife, arrow, gunpowder, machine gun and finally nukes.

Good news to us, humans, no way out of the loop – thanks to God, ethics or whatever you call it.

Google on its way to become the most annoying company – no way to enable extension

I usually disable all sorts of auto-updaters in MS-Windows registry in favour of manual update my favourite applications.

I was recently incautious enough to update Google Chrome and suddenly… bdzionk …one of my favourite extensions got disabled.

I’m thinking, well, let’s switch-on – but hey – “Enable” button is greyed, what’s the heck?

Disabled extension - no way to enable

Disabled extension – no way to enable

Quick search for some help reveals:

Communist-style behaviour of Google Chrome - no way to enable an extension

Communist-style behaviour of Google Chrome – no way to enable an extension

Apparently Google strives to achieve the position of most hated IT company replacing current long-reigning leader currently in position.
