Holy crap, you've gotta be kidding me.

Have we learned nothing from countless scifi movies? Hehe. I'm wondering if we've even got the technology something like this would require.

I am pretty sure this is going to be a movie. I saw a commercial for this "product" before a movie at the theater and I just reacted with a "What?"

2/16/2004 >> muhgcee

Your answer.

2/16/2004 >> pyrex

Heh, good. Thought it was a little too outrageous. Still, how cool would it be? And at the same time how scary.

2/16/2004 >> muhgcee

To answer those questions, you have to watch the movie :-)

Okay tech-nerds, quick primer on culture. If you haven't read Issac Asimov's "I, Robot" yet, you are not a complete human being. If you call yourself a computer-type, and haven't read it, you're barely even a primate.

Go out and buy it and read it. Its short, like a novella, you could read it in a night. Its _the_ seminal AI book and tons of fun. If you read the book the ad campaign looks quite clever and familiar.

tekkie yes, scifi guy no

easy there, casey... it's a great book, and yes, very fundamental... but no need to choke them with it...

if you can believe it, a lot of them haven't even read the hitchhiker's guide (i had to send it back to sweden with pyrex to get him to read it, hehe)

and by the by... i'm not _that_ excited to see it... because, like dune, everything done by other authors about the asimov universe has pretty much, well, universally sucked...

the video game in the early/mid 80s was good, but the robot city sextet started off ok and ran into the city dump very quickly...

also, i liked the foundation series more... but of course, yay daneel at the end, hahaha

Hey! That was just because I couldn't find (or was too lazy to) an english version of H2G2. Then I got your cool old-skool copies which, in some cases, literally fell apart in my hands. Hehe.

2/17/2004 >> ben

blame that on z's aunt actually... those were copies she gave him which he gave me...

2/17/2004 >> ben

everyone knows i keep my books in great condition... sometimes in their original wrappers! hehehehe

Frank Herbert really liked the David Lynch version of his book, who knows why... but the miniseries made later was actually a pretty well done Dune.

I am NOT looking forward to the Ender's Game movie, ruining my favorite book... EVIL
