Comments on Robotic Toaster Sells Itself
'I'm not yours to order around... I'm to remain with you until you buy me.'- Philip K. Dick, 1954. (Read the complete story)

"Compare the robotic toaster with another Philip K. Dick idea - the homotropic news vending machine from his 1963 story The Game Players of Titan. It searched out the humans to sell them newspapers."
(Bill Christensen 3/19/2014 7:52:23 AM)
"And then there's always the 'Talky Toaster' from the Red Dwarf series. 'Anybody want some toast?'"
(Steven 3/19/2014 10:00:47 AM)
"Here's the video; I've watched some Red Dwarf episodes, but I missed this one. Thanks again for writing in.
