    With all of the serious issues going on with the Bionic, thought I add to the chaos!

    New Google Android Technology. The real question is, will we be cheated out of this because we won't get ICS on our Bionics. This is OUTRAGEOUS!!! :mad:

    Given the seriousness of this topic, you should seriously take time off from the "Do you like your Bionic", "Will the Bionic be Discontinued" and "I done with this phone" threads and consider this!

    Still better than what you get with the IPhone, which is just Siri whispering in your ear to buy more Apple products.

    Wow, what garbage. I'd rather pay more for a phone than have to deal with that voice ad grabage while in the middle of a phone call, while taking photos, etc. If / when they start installing this on phones, makes me extra thankfull to be rooted and running "AdFree" app. Blocking this crap should be easy enough.

    lmao :biggrin:

    I watched the video w/o even looking at the url, then started reading the comments here. lol. Totally thought it was real at first. That's the scary thing, is that it seems totally plausible. I wouldn't put it past some of the large corporations to actually begin incorporating something like that into phones in the near future.

    ROTFLMAO (think that's what my kids say). Makes you wonder hey? :D

    May have to use this in my "Psych for Boredom" Phd dissertation which analyzes:
    • Do people comprehend what they read
    • Variations in "wit" when using technology
    • The effects of technology outrage on mental well-being
    • And how early adopters use technology when they are bored

    Hope I don't start a S*!t storm for Google! :icon_ lala:
    Enjoy....

    The amount of people that have never heard of The Onion in this thread is outstanding.

    I did not know anything about Onion. Never heard of them. At first it seemed real but as I finished watching the whole thing I couldn't help but realized that it was a joke.

    Some time ago, The Onion, did an article on how Harry Potter brings kids to Satanism, which was the idea of J.K. Rowling . That article got referenced a lot by Conservative Americans. You can read it at Harry Potter Books Spark Rise In Satanism Among Children | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

    And for fun, here's The Onion's take on the iPhone. Apple's New iPhone | The Onion - America's Finest News Source and the iPad Apple Finally Unveils iPad | The Onion - America's Finest News Source
