Let's remember that Google TV has been discontinued. Now it is Android TV, and if I don't get it wrong LG newer TV's now ship with WebOS.
So, there is Ramsonware for the unsupported old Google TVs ? And I thought that having a discontinued OS that you can not update on a TV was bad enough.
I also think that the best way to preserve a book is to also to digitize it. The open library has a great idea for copyrighted books, they scan the books they own, the books is stored in a container and they share it online only one person at the time and can not be copied. If the person don't return the digital book, the system just check it in automatically after some days. Check http://www.openlibrary.org/ and Internet Archive.
There is the problem that old books that can not be sold are being purged (or recycled). I think the best way for the moment is send a copy of each book the Internet Archive Book Drive. They take some time to scan the books, but at least there is a chance for knowledge to be preserved.
Dave Knott writes: Amazon just unveiled a grocery store without lines or checkout counters. Amazon Go, a 1800-square-foot retail space located in the company’s hometown of Seattle, lets shoppers just grab the items they want and leave; the order gets charged to their Amazon account afterwards. Amazon Go works by using computer vision and sensors to detect what items you’re taking out of the store. You start by scanning an app as you enter the Amazon Go shop. You do your normal shopping, and the sensors throughout the store identify the items in your cart and charge them to your account when you walk out the door. It’ll feel like shoplifting, except you’re actually being watched by more cameras than you can imagine. Though Amazon Go does do away with human cashiers, we haven’t seen anything about robots physically stocking the store, so while it does eliminate some jobs, it’s not a completely automated system... at least, not yet.
