4. actually, he really does act like a poorly written computer program.

certain features simply haven't been added yet (tact, vocabulary upgrade, empathy, democracy, etc.)
and many features that have been added are buggy (can't stay on topic, repeats words, occasionally crashes mid-interview and restarts with the boot-up insult routine, etc.)

seriously, as a former programmer, he really does look an awful lot like a buggy program that attempts to act like a human.

20. I just hope it's not the Ryanbot.

That thing seems cold and soulless, even for a machine.

18. If I had designed them, I would have them leave a transistor turd or two on the ground behind

them.

But that's just me.

Creepy indeed: robots helping robots. What a world, what a world.
