Danger, Will Robinson

“Call Uber, see if they’ve got those flying cars up and running yet.
I’d like to get the hell out of here.”

Remember when Google’s motto used to be “Don’t be evil?”

Those were good times, hey? ’Scuse me, I need to take this call. Hi, Dr. Smith!

Asked for comment, Skynet-Palantír-Magic 8-Ball CEO Sauron DeGreate said, “Eye have no idea what you’re so excited about. That’s a joke, I say, that’s a joke, son! Say hello to Siri for me.”

    Electronic/IT/cyber warfare comes to a home near you. Or maybe it’s YOUR home!

    Course, I’ve never been able to hear a dog whistle when I blow it either. 🙂

    This isn’t surprising, but that doesn’t make it any less terrifying. That note about how many “smart speakers” will be in service in the future reinforces how pliable humans really are. Talk about “sheepeople”. Did I spell that right?

      I think it’s “sheeple,” B. But yeah, pliable, like Silly Putty.

      Nothing is smart around here, save for the cats and Herself. But we have all those Apple gadgets, with their eyes and ears, so I know that sometimes the voices I’m hearing aren’t all in my head.

    Btw, really like the pic. I was a Lost in Space fanboy in fourth grade. It was very popular with my crowd until Batman appeared. I thought Batman was cute, but gauche. To this day I’m a science fiction guy. I don’t think l’ve ever seen a color pic before. Nice!
