jayessell: Maybe instead of having disinfectant and heating elements built in the entire module should be removable for cleaning.
(Well... It would HAVE to be, wouldn't it? Who can afford His  & Her Sexbots when the only difference is the plug and play interface module?)

"Technological developments mean that we are on a path to a world in which it will be possible to decode people's mental processes and directly manipulate the brain mechanisms underlying their intentions, emotions and decisions; where individuals can communicate with others simply by thinking; and where powerful computational systems linked directly to people's brains facilitate their interactions with the world such that their mental and physical abilities are greatly enhanced," the researchers wrote.

How can I get a gig as a "security expert" so I can say stupid shiat to media outlets and they'll write stories about it? Does it pay well?

It's not like we really deserve to survive as a species right now, so might as well have a little fun before we flicker out.

There may be some money in death or mutilation, but the real money maker is the data collection.

Do I mean data as video and audio recordings as blackmail material or do I mean data as part of the collected accumulation of information on tastes, desires and interests that are already being mined today?

It's both.

I never liked the fact that D84 gets killed in that episode.

They should have made him (it) a companion.
