...I am fucking terrified.
How many of you guys have seen 2001: A Space Odyssey? It's a classic, and I personally really like it, but today I noticed something that scared me.
Siri, the computer assistant on iPhone and iPad, is our first big step towards making that movie a reality.
For those who haven't seen it, HAL is the villain in the movie, and he is a computer designed to be helpful and guide the ship and stuff. THERE'S NO WAY THIS COULD GO WRONG.
So, anyways, what freaked me out about Siri was the fact that when your ask her about HAL, she says one of two things.
"I don't like to talk about HAL."
"HAL made some bad decisions, but at least he could sing."
...what the fuck? She talks about HAL like the movie was in real life, and it already happened.
That's very scary to me.
