    Time To Apply The First Law Of Robotics To Our Smartphones

    The title is catchy, and though I really agree with this sentiment, i'm not sure how simple the issue is.
    They work for other people. They’re designed, built and managed to provide leverage and control to people other than their owners. Unless we retrofit the first law of robotics onto them immediately, we’re cooked.

    They take our money. They take our autonomy. They spy on us. And around the world, they result in our arrest, beating, torture.
