So I hear about Apple Homekit from their presentation at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
I immediately think of HAL from “2001: A Space Odyssey”, telling Dave not to turn him off.
I then move forward, albeit briefly, to “West World”, A movie about a robust robot amusement park where Yul Brenner kills a bunch of people and other robots kill people in the control center.
Then my mind wanders to the recent Johnny Depp film “Transcendence”, but then I laugh it off since computers will not be that ridiculous anytime ever.
There was a movie of the week I recall in the 1970’s called “Colossus: The Forbin Project” that I thought was scary. I was very young and my mom was feeding me candy and homemade oatmeal cookies, so I might have just been high wired,
unlike like I am now.
And as I look at my Tempur Pedic pillow, I wonder if it would someday be able to suffocate me in the middle of the night because I snore too much….or would my ResMed CPAP machine (for snoring) come to my defense and declare war against it.
Who would win in that battle?
And why did I just refer to two home objects as “who”?
