Tomlov G1200 7″ LCD Digital Microscope First Impressions

I haven’t written in a while, prose or poetry, because I’ve been preoccupied with a few other things. One is time sensitive, which is learning about investing, so the market won’t make a correction before I am ready to jump in. The other is not, which is taking my interest in artistic photography of the microscopic to another level to get some prints in the future. For that, I have gotten myself a portable digital microscope capable of producing 12 megapixel images, with this Tomlov G1200 7″ LCD Digital Microscope.

https://digitalcitizen.ca/category/writing/OK. Sketchy post today, from a few items I had seen lately on a Facebook feed of a friend who is very much into the adult scene, and not shy to share news about it.

When Will Artificial Intelligence Become the Voice of the Devil for Some?

https://digitalcitizen.ca/category/writing/Most of us have heard about psychotic killers, or at least criminals, who did violent crime because they deemed a voice from some thing, some creature, maybe even some person via TV or such, being a manifest of the devil or demon or some other supernatural evil being, urged them to. With people interacting more with apps and devices that can talk and/or text to us back, how long will it be before one of these “voices” be cited as that of the devil, demons, or maybe even evil artificial intelligence, for the psychotic to commit crimes? And what then?
