IFTTT allows you to create and add recipes, basically a recipe is an “If this then that” event happens then do something. Examples include:
The app allows viewers to watch in real time or if they get interrupted resume where they left off. Viewers can interact by sending messages and also ‘like’ the feed which displays hearts.
Thomas Morris, an estate agents in St Neots, is currently using the app to offer house viewings allowing multiple people to see the property at the same time.
What other features can you think of?
The heat generated from computing could keep homes warm for free
Love the idea of keeping your house warm for free by allowing these servers to be placed in your home doing processing for other companies. Although I will be surprised if it ever makes it to the UK.
How long before these become a reality, makes you wonder what life wil be like if and when they do?
According to the BBC:
Joey Salads tries to lure children away from their parents using a cute puppy. He says he’s sounding a warning about “stranger danger”. But critics point out that few children are abducted by strangers, and that the video is unnecessarily scaring parents.
But the fact is he did it and that is what makes it so scary and further enforces the reasons why parents should always ensure their children are aware of “Stranger Danger”
At first I thought yes I have the body that all women adorn then I read further and realised perhaps not. A gentle paunch it is not more a large hill!!!
This would have to be a very particular young lady, of course. Given the consequences of the choice, it had better also be a very particular flower. But either way, I would give a flower to a lady.
This young woman would a be very important girl in history, because at the time I would meet her, she should rightly be meeting someone else. If I were to succeed in gaining her attention, the attention of one girl history only remembers as a footnote, and even that for only a few short minutes, history would never have been the same.
Perhaps an even smaller act would have been for me to simply inform the Duke of Cleveland to watch more closely the movements of his daughter. Had the Duke not been lax in his roles as caretaker of his daughter she may not have gained the attention of a bright, though, not all too uncommon young lawyer. That would have saved me at least a rose and done the same for history.
Bismarck is significant because without him, the fundamental make-up of Europe would be nothing like it is today. Perhaps Germany would just be a region of a much larger France. That region may today be no more discernible to people outside of Europe than Normandy or Aquitaine are today. But he was there and he did win. What followed next was the Treaty of Frankfurt. Many scholars today agree that this treaty was far too punitive against the French and sowed the seeds of a future war. That war would be World War I. What followed there was a massive collection of arms and men that tore through Europe in ways unmatched before it. Following this came the Treaty of Versailles, which echoed the same anger and resentment and was a likewise too punitive treaty toward the German people. Bitter resentments festered, their economy collapsed, then was rebuilt and another leader rose up and the story continued.
What I have to wonder is how small of an act could have prevented it. Take one special person, one inconceivably important person, in hindsight, and direct them to step left instead of right on any of thousands of innocuous moments. What choices would be made then and what futures changed? It would be easy really if you go back far enough. Further than those who might suggest we just forge Adolf Hitler’s admittance papers into art school, for that would still not guarantee a world without WWII. I would suggest that WWII would have probably happened even if Hitler never did. The Treaty of Versailles was already inked and the German people were angry with or without him. Germany seemed so eager that it plunged itself into the dark corners of history at only the behest of a not extremely noteworthy man. This man possessed, what some would say, no particular breeding, education or experience besides at one time being a penniless, homeless failure with a history of mental illness. So you can see that I don’t particularly care for the idea of anyone who suggests the barbarically uncreative and uninspired killing of baby Hitler. I don’t really see it doing any good. After all, we might have had Joseph Goebbels, or Heinrich Himmler in charge instead. Would that have been preferable? No, I think you would have to go much, much further back to stop something as big as WWII.
But would that even be a good idea? Would there be other wars instead? Would the world ever read Friedrich Nietzsche or Karl Marx? Would Albert Einstein even be born? I have to wonder this as well. Even the best of plans always seem to confound us with the unintended consequences we fail to predict. I would wonder in this new world what sort of Europe we would have today had Napoleon III become the Emperor if not for Bismarck. Would Europe have been better off? It’s hard to image it worse, but that too is possible. In fact, it’s very possible. There are a countless number of worse fates that Europe could have endured greater than both the World Wars. The bounds of depravity could likely exceed any boundaries of our creativity to imagine the carnage that could have been. I’m not saying that WWI and WWII were insignificant, but that we can never know how bad things could have been. I wouldn’t jump at the chance to have a talk with the Duke unless I would accept choices like these come with some very real risks.
And of course, this entire story neglects a massive part of WWII that is completely ignored. In the West we always wonder how to prevent the war in Europe, but in the East, WWII was happening long before it even started in Europe. They experienced many atrocities which one would say compared easily to horrors of Europe. One, surely, would most likely wish to have made that vanish from the historical record, as well. I have no solution for that, since I don’t profess to know nearly what I should of Asian history. And if not for the war with Germany, there would be Russia, or rather, the Soviet Union. We can’t forget that they lost far more to Germany than did anyone else. What kind of superpower would they have become if not for the Eastern front? Would they have become the great evil of the 20th century if they had not lost a generation fighting the war? Could it be possible they would have been worse? What history we have shows that this horrifying alternative may very well be the case.
Certainly, though, the girlfriend of some 1830’s lawyer would make no difference to all of these stories. In fact, I can’t think of single thing that would link all the world’s events that led into World War II in such a way as to prevent all sides of the conflict.
I find it ridiculous that Sky even took this action. Sky and Skype are 2 completely different products!
