According to the New York Post (always a bastion of careful reasoning and journalistic moderation):
Hackers could program sex robots to kill
In other words, it could be almost as dangerous as having sex with a couple of my ex-girlfriends. A couple of points need to be made at this juncture:
- For some men, this could be a turn-on rather than a cautionary tale
- Note the proliferation of “could”, “might”, “may” and all the other weasel words in this article — in other words, it’s total crap
- No doubt the “hackers” who actually perpetrate this wickedness will be Russians, Ukranians, Central Europeans as opposed to, oh I don’t know, retarded British hackers
- I would imagine that for owners of said stuff, privacy would be paramount. So anyone who hooks his sex toy up [sic] to the “Internet of things” deserves everything he gets.
For the record, I don’t believe a single word of this bullshit. It’s probably a story dreamed up by militant feminists or (more likely) RealDoll‘s competitors.
Come on, Cherry 2000…
