It's just marketing. I have one and they're great. No, they do not steal your DNA.

Probably not far off of what we'll see in the future, with computer chips being implanted to increase cognitive function, or super strong materials inserted into muscles for extra strength. Ya never know. Also that phone kicks butt! If I had Verizon instead of AT&T, that'd be my phone of choice.

Freaky indeed.
This is the future in a few decades though. Well, not droid DNA, but cyborgization and inevitable replacement of more and more biological organs and systems by artificial ones.
Our grand grand (grand?) children will be more machine then Humans. And eventually there will be no need for biological parts at all.
This is real threat to Humanity. Even bigger then nukes.

I really dont think this is any more freaky than any of the other totally illogical mobile phone advertisments I have seen. Its interesting, and its well made, but not freaky.

So a young person says "Change is normal. Get with the times, old man!"

Just wait until all the young people growing up on these portables are in their 30's and 40's and 50's and start to realize they're just as disposable as past generations and that all around them things are changing and past values and ideals are discarded in favor of the next shiny new thing.

THEN they'll get a taste. They'll know what it's about.

Nothing is sacred. You're not important. We will forget you. Understand? See, this is why old people are usually staunch critics of rapid progress. They know what's being lost! They had to live through it. They had to see their friends and loved ones die. Past freedoms lost. Past ways of life supplanted by technology. Then they see the ignorant youth disrespect their era with clumsy generalizations.

Sometimes I wonder if us dying is a protest against the ways of the world. So much of being human is emotional and abstract, not robotic. Don't we become attached to past things for this reason. If this intimacy could be removed entirely then I think we'd be only a hair above biological machines.

This reminds me of the book Rama Revealed. The end of it. I won't give anybody the pleasure of knowing what the end is. But it's relevant and I should mention it. This isn't a particular recommendation to read the rama series of books. Not everybody likes Arthur C. Clarke.

So true! I won't use smartphones, I don't trust the GPS in em'.

What you said made me picture a future world where everyone is walking around with Arc reactors (Iron Man) in they're chests and theres an old man on a bench feeding pidgeons, still plugged in to the Droid DNA.
