Docket 14-002: Killer Robots, iCloud, and Hobby Lobby
This episode’s a short one, so I can get this damn thing out and move on to Episode Three before all my stories are out of date, so:
- It turns out that the UN has really taken all those James Cameron movies to heart;
- Apple is having trouble enforcing those terms and conditions no one reads;
- and I’ll take an in-depth look at the Supreme Court’s upcoming Hobby Lobby decision and how it might have some unintended consequences when it comes to discrimination in the workplace.
A quick publishing note: The episode was written and recorded (though not edited) prior to yesterday’s court ruling in Wisconsin in which Judge Barbara Crabb declared the state’s ban unconstitutional. Crabb did not order that government officials immediately begin issuing licenses to same-sex couples, but she also did not stay her ruling, and some counties have moved on the issue. Wisconsin brings the total number of states in which same-sex marriages are legal to 21.
