Hi Rudy,

And it's only going to get more creepy. Notice also the "posted as a service to our community."

Speaking of creepy, check out this video.

Linh,x larry,

Let me know how it goes when you get yours.

I read not long ago that Samsung televisions (maybe it was computer monitors) record everything that is said in their presence. I told my son about this. He said they're called smart TVs, and went on to say that pretty soon every electronic thing will be smart like that.

So... creepy is definitely it.

The world has become a very strange place - and few people younger than 30 seem to understand that.

will do, rudy, though it may not be so soon as even if i wanted and could afford one, there's no doubt a two year contract with monthly payments. like with tv and the newspapers, we not only willingly brainwash ourselves, but pay for that priveledge.
i'm generally so creeped out though that i hardly need one of them there jibos.
cheers

I don't know about Jibo's voice.

It needs a more Austrian-sounding accent.

that might actually be an improvement. for me, nothing is creepier than than whiney white credit card commercial voice
