id rather die by the hand of a machine than by a zombie apocalypse.... at least machines can build things after they are done with us.... zombies... not much

Cause of death: Killed by a Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 (T101) or Arnold

I'd rather go out with guns blazing against the zombies since we wouldn't be here to see the machines build things. Head shots anyone?

we can also fight machines with EMP.... plus if you get injured by a machine you wont turn into one :/ plus you ain't some movie hero... unlike machines where you get killed and there is one less human when you get bitten we have one more zombie

I agree downphoenix, we damaged more. humans are viruses to earth.

What, we just progressed from Monkeys eating apple to Humans using Apple. Its evolution. Not damage. There may be some undesirable side effects during our advancements. But the improvement is worth the hassle.

And the best part is that you will never see the word "patent" in this news unlike some rotten iCompany that I know of. Good guy Google.

Pitchforks and torches from me Mike.
Although ICS speech recognization is nothing short of awesome. My Droid X has even been improving.

I just told my sgs3 "hasta la vista baby" through the s-voice and it replied " i hope so".
Now im thinking if it may start giving me a different reply when the brain comes out.
16. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2669; Member since: 26 May 2011)
SGS3 and S Voice are powered by Vlingo speech recognition, not Google, so you're not going to get the benefits unless you replace S Voice with Google Voice Actions.
19. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2669; Member since: 26 May 2011)
Of course, when I tried to say "hasta la vista baby" to Google Now, it came up as "I love still love you baby"
Maybe it would work better with more context, like saying "terminator 2 hasta la vista" or "Arnold Schwarzenegger hasta la vista"...
