South Korea’s governmental ruling mandating the installation of an application (created by the government no-less) monitoring Smartphone usage of those 19 and under is not without (major) controversy… even Orwell could not have imagined this!
Wouldn’t it be nice (even Utopian) if the FCC’s ‘net Neutrality ruling was just enacted and America’s Internet access was finally treated like a Public Utility?

Microsoft’s decision to build an 84 inch/213 cm / 4K Surface Hub (i.e., a giant computer screen) in America is a great idea. The on-going challenge for the overall High Tech industry is building a sustained, in-country, manufacturing-base versus the occasional headline/marketing grabbing here and there news-bite!
