The human credit card?
Peter Sammons wonders what Microsoft’s patent 666 is all about.
It is true! Microsoft has a patent with the number WO/2020/060606. If you take out the zeros (which stand for nothing) then you are left with the portentous number 666. When I first heard this I was inclined to disbelieve it. It sounds like fake news, conspiracy theory and sheer sensationalism.
Yet there it is! What does Patent 2020-666 actually encompass and should we be concerned?
