Yes.

I think that eventually we'll have computers in everything, absolutely everything. They'll control the utilities, the food supply, military and civilian satellites, communications, even our cars and other personal items. These computers will be programmed with the directive to see to the protection and advancement of the human race. Being computers, they'll take this directive to its logical extreme and strive to protect humanity from its own worst enemy: itself.

See for reference:
Star Trek (TOS) "Return of the Archons"
Star Trek (TOS) "The Apple"
Colossus: The Forbin Project
AI (movie, not the book)

Shades of Sleeper? I hope not. I know I can knit a pair of socks better than a computer.

:thumbsup:

I think that if a computer takes over the world, it will die eventually, due to some hardware issue and other faults.

Tell Gates? Why he already knows! Windows 95 crashed! right in front of Gates on national tv...what show was it Johnny Carson? He laughed and said people will still buy it. And they did...and that is the sad part. We accepted the mediocrity of this program and that is what scares me.

:thumbsup: Bill Gates bashing is not the topic here LOL.. Actually.. people criticise him to death but was there anything better? So he cornered a market.. Did anyone offer up an alternative at the time? LOL You can bet I would have done the same if I were in his shoes. hehehe

ontopic.. I think as long as the computers aren't named Hal we will be ok.

They named it HAL because IBM refused to have their name associated with a homocidal computer (go figure.) HAL is a one-letter shifted version of IBM.

Correct me if I am wrong, Pandy, but was there not Apple? IBM was for the business end with DOS to boot and Apple was for the artistic crowd, desk top publishing and music. So yes, there was "something else out there".

:off topic:linux was around but it wasn't very similar to the linux we use today, also it relied upon a users ability to connect to the internet to get it if i remember correctly. Windows came preloaded on machines in areas where there was no internet.


aside from that computers have already taken over the world Neo. Now pick the Red pill or the Blue pill.
