Was there any doubt it would get here?
I still want Kit the talking car.
That will interface with bluetooth to your droid and track everything you do, make all of your private info public for police to instantly access, and secretly submit your retinal scan to the national database. Sounds like fun! There is a video about this on the TED talks. Maybe I'll find that and post it...
