Your plastic pal that's fun to be with!

How to handle robots moving into our everyday lives?  By making our lives more like those of robots, of course.

This is an old tune I've heard many times before.  Forty years ago, we were told that the only font we'd be allowed to use is one that can be scanned by machines.  Ten years ago we were told that we had to change our handwriting to accommodate machines.  Then we needed to talk differently, and so on and so forth.  The thing is, by the time the technology actually arrives it can adapt to us or we discover the real truth that it's rubbish and have nothing to do with it.
