Microsoft Wants to Back Up Your Brain

Gizmodo: "Imagine being able to store every second of your life on a computer and then calling up digital snapshots of individual moments with a quick search. If Gordon Bell, the head of Microsoft's Media Presence Research Group has his way, this technology could become a reality. The idea behind MyLifeBits or "surrogate memory" as Bell has dubbed it, is that people should be concerned with living life, not "maintaining our memory systems."" (Tech, Xbox 360)

Remember: Never beta a Microsoft product, unless you want to be constantly slow and crash a lot.

It sounds like sh!t. Who wants to remember every mistake? Could people download your brain and use it as evidence with a court order, like a sopena? I've committed a minor offense 9 years ago and I don't want it on a computer anywhere!

LOL!!
It would be funny if it actually happens. Imagine you back up your whole life on a computer and then like your mom or whatever comes over to your house and watches a video of u jacking off, that would be funny.

But if you think about it, it would be good for crimes or something like that. They could just download the entire life of someone to a hardrive and find out what crimes that person has commited.

LMFAO
I was thinking the same thing, but other than that, I'm down for this.

Everyday as I sit in class listening to my various professors drone on about their respective subject I think "wouldn't it be cool if it was like the matrix where I could just download this course into my head".

I would just go off to school sit in a chair for a minute or two, get up and go "Ohh I know Differential Equations. And how to bake a killer pie!"
Yea that would be wonderful, just wonderful.

One BSOD and your ass is grass!!
Armyless  +   2588d ago
Exactly (beat me to it, you did)
Memory dump... did you remember to make a recovery disk? No? Sorry my friend you just voided your brain's warranty. Goodbye.

Watch out so no-one hacks your memories!

Ghost in the Shell...

awesome
then i can try a drug, and just reload that memory every time instead of actually doing the drug every time.
Skerj  +   2588d ago
I'd just start doing a bunch of awesome things and sell them off to other people to boost off of my peaks.

(If you've read the book Rant, you'll know what I'm talking about)
Xi  +   2588d ago
yeah
i was thinking the same thing, sucks if you get rabies.
Skerj  +   2588d ago
Hah yeah no more boosting peaks.
Eclipticus  +   2588d ago
hmm there is actually a book with this. WEll not A BOOK! but a scifiction/mystery book/series. Its pretty interesting, dealing with crimes, criminals & victims, etc.I am sure somewhere down the road that is where we are headed. HIVE-Mind/Borg futuristic stuff. (Playstation 9 BABY!). But i would volunteer.

If they could store your memory they could probably alter it too.
Which would mean that they wouldn't be able to use your memories as evidence.
And which in turn would mean that any word you utter for your own defense would be null.

Trust would be an illusion in such a world, imho.

this sounds like some scary stuff.
