I, Robot. Coming soon. Step by step, we're moving in that direction it seems. It won't be long before we become Cyborgs. Souljah had a very good
point about viruses, etc. It truly is a double-edged sword.
I don't mean to be the voice of doom here, but there really is another side to this coin. Don't get me wrong, I love bleeding edge technology.
Exotic gadgets really fascinate me, and I think personal area networking has all kinds of potential. When you think about it, the possibilities are
mind boggling. Science fiction is quickly becoming today's reality. I just hope we, as human beings, are able to keep pace with our rapidly advancing
technology. There are sinister forces at work out there, quite eager to exploit these technologies in profound ways. For all the good things they
bring to our lives, they also open the door for bad things, as well.
Technology seduces us, and there's no turning back now. The snowball is rolling down the mountain, and it's building more momentum every second of
every day. After all, who would ever dare to say, "We must put a halt to research & development until such time as we are able to intelligently
control it's application"? No one I know of, including me.
Like I said, I think personal area networking is gas. It could lead to all sorts of neat and useful applications. I just hope I never fall the victum
of a doom's day virus by using it.
PS: I doubt the above scenario would stop me from using the technology. It's just a thought ...
