60秒科学:Greatest Invention in Human History Helps You Avoid Certain People

听力内容:

60秒科学节目(SSS)是科学美国人网站的一套广播栏目,英文名称:Scientific American – 60 Second Science,节目内容以科学报道为主,节目仅一分钟的时间,主要对当今的科学技术新发展作以简明、通俗的介绍,对于科学的发展如何影响人们的生活环境、健康状况及科学技术,提供了大量简明易懂的阐释。

You’re walking near the park when your iPhone chimes. It tells you that one of your many Foursquare contacts is enjoying a coffee at an outdoor caf®¶ on the next block. So you turn on your heel and head the other way.

Welcome to the era of antisocial networking. Where you filter pictures of your friends’ kids out of your Facebook feed, replace inane tweets with those you actually care about and keep tabs on people you’d rather avoid.

The Cloak app, for example, collects location info from Instagram and Foursquare to let you know where your so-called °∞friends°± are°™so that you never have to see them. It scans their most recent check-ins, and plots those locations on a map. It can even alert you when the guy you owe twenty bucks to is nearby.

Cloak developers Brian Moore and Chris Baker say they came up with the idea after too many chance encounters with ex-girlfriends. They plan to expand Cloak to interface with other apps, including Facebook. And they insist their feelings won’t be hurt if they suddenly stop bumping into their Cloak-using friends.
