Geez, soon as I saw the word Twitter that article was over for me. I swear to god the world seems to be brainwashed with Twitter.

Sort of sad that the robot butlers will end up killing us. :(

Must have been an evil plot by the cockroaches to eliminate us.

I must say, MS is run by the roaches. MS employees are just remote controlled robots spewing the insect's mantra.

An underground roach network keeps tabs on every internal Apple project with with an eye on replicating and multiplying new developments asap.

Did you think zune's brown color was a random choice?

:D:p

Interesting article.

Here in Japan, some of the younger folks forgo land lines and computers and do everything by cell phone.

One fellow I knew, who owned part of a race horse, used to be via his phone on a daily basis.

yeah most younger folks in Japan do everything by cell, and the corporations there have most things optimized for mobile browsers... I want to visit there its been said that they have the highest speed for cable broadband - 70mbps for the price of American dialup

I've got a cheap 50Mbps ADSL line for about $25 per month.

If I wanted to spend $40 per month I could have a 100Mbps VDSL line. Or for a little more, FTTH at 100Mbps.

I live near Tokyo.

FTTH --> Fiber To The Home.

FTTH is 100Mbps.

Ok, when it's an interview like that, is it the author's fault, the interviewee's fault, or the editor's fault when it's full of obvious stupid typos?

I mean.. The Guardian really shouldn't be doing that, online or not. :/

"in your live whatsoever" ? "The last think I bought" ???

Robot butlers sound good to me..
