Given what you know about the current state of phone technology and Internet , which tech company would you trust to control your neural implant?

If a computer can read/write directly to your brain, does it change how you feel about vendor control of which software you can use or whether you can see the code? What about subsidizing hardware/software w/ ads or selling data they access through the computer?

One promise of neural tech is to supplement humans w/ apps that provide instant skills/knowledge. Imagine Apple and an app company get in a dispute, Apple removes the app, and you lose the ability to speak Mandarin/drive/cook/play guitar/write software?

You have so many good arguments for this, I genuinely hope people will understand why this idea is fundamentally awful

Imagine the bugs! Like, "There was a bug in your memory augmenting app, so sorry, you have amnesia now."

@kyle given how much time I spend fixing the aftermath of bugs that made it through some level of testing and review I’m not letting anything chmod 777 my neurons.

@kyle I was going to question what's wrong with NeuralLink, but then I test drove a Tesla, and now I have additional questions about this very thing.
