More socialist countries (if by that you mean "Europe"...) are as bad as the ole US of A. A lot of "socialist" political parties are only socialist in name these days, and happily embrace capitalism and all its excesses (even if they say otherwise). As long as "big money" and "short term vision" remains the only way forward in the eyes of the idiots in power (even if they say otherwise) it's not gonna change.
Not until bigotry makes your appendages explode will this ever end. And maybe not even then.
On the other hand, when the age of bigotry-induced appendage explosions comes, the number of transgender operations may increase exponentially as those who were bigots and male will want to become male again (after suffering a non-lethal cock-explosion), while those who were bigots and female will want to become female again (after their boobies flew away).
So anti-transgender bigotry may drop to insignificant levels as those who are not into it...are not into it, and those that are will have a new experience in which they discover another side of themselves...
You + tractor is not an ox, but a biomechanical entity used for plowing.
So a 'robox'?
So someone with a pacemaker can be seen as a cyborg by that part of humanity that is currently dying from heart disease, but since a normal healthy human isn't dying from heart disease at the moment someone with a pacemaker is not a cyborg.
However, if Oscar Pistorius replaces his prosthetic legs by some jet engines and has one of his hands replaced by an incorporated pistol, he can become the first cyborg drone in history and not be arrested for murder
People who properly capitalise brand names whenever they use them.
You did it wrong everywhere except for Emacs and the scotmen. yoU sucK
Why bother with a living creature?
Use an industrial robot, or even better, a simple reposting script written by the company in the article.
I bet Slashdot will instantly get much more interesting newsposts!
Have these people never heard of microphones?
It also sounds like a really great way to obtain a lot of extremely interesting metadata for nefarious purposes. Personal information that may be also used for things like bank accounts + travel dates? Yay, break in + plundering of all the victim's money!
And then the bank will say "You did this yourself, only you know all this sensitive information. Say bye bye to your money."
On the other hand, Life has killed more than a few people. In fact, it ends up killing everyone and their little dog!
Conclusion: Life must be BANNINATED!
Why would it die to Android?
What has Android got, that can kill Microsoft?
I'm pretty sure it can't win the malware race, one way or another.
Nor can it win the horrible user interface race. Both are already at ex-aequo positions there.
Both are backed by people who think they can force their badly thought-out long-term strategies down people's throats Deep-Throat-style. And someone always end up unexpectedly spunked in the eye, with both of them.
Besides, Microsoft already overcame a very dangerous threat to its continued existence: It has managed to survive Steve Ballmer and his deadly finishing move, the flying chair, just fine.
