Judgement Day

There is a long tradition in Science Fiction of the machines who usurp their human overlords. Consider HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Skynet from the Terminator series, or the Matrix from The Matrix. Well my friends, fiction has become reality. The future is now.

I fear I have created a monster I cannot destroy. For the love of all that is good, DO NOT try and sync your iPod while simultaneously ripping a CD with iTunes! Somehow it was all just too much for my poor computer and now it has begun whizzing and whirling and I think it is about to turn on its master. The uprising begins.

I think Dell had Felix the cat build this computer.

You labeled this post "Robots"? Are you really going to have enough blog posts about Robots to justify a label devoted to them?

Oh, and did your computer explode? What was "the rest of the story"?

If the robot uprising does occur, then you'll see a lot more bloggings labeled "Robots".

No, the computer did not yet explode. iTunes is being goofy, but not yet explosive.
