PostPosted: Sun Feb 01, 2004 12:48 pm   Post subject: www.irobotnow.com ????

Alright, I have found a site that scared me yesterday, the site is www.irobotnow.com ( if any of you heard of it , please don't say anything)
Now, I saw this link on a poster, and saw the commercial following a car commercial in a theater. So I decided to check it out, I got on to the site and looked around, did some reading.. and I pissed my pants but had some doubts at the same time, the site advertises a robot or personal assistant that you can purchase as of July 16 ( I think ) ..

The information there seemed VERY convincing , and you all should check it out 2

heres the site again.. www.irobotnow.com


( o and i copied the pic on the main page and put it together if u want to use it as a background for ur desktop )

jonos.. man.. good one. smart ass.. i mentioned that if u know anything please shut up...

its a comercial setup for a movie.. like the one for regeneris for the movie Resident Evil 2..

teh site seems VERY convincing.. as i mentioned before.. and i tried lookig for any hints that its a movie.. cause i saw the poster at a theater in a mall.. but it wasnt posted along side with the rest so i was wondering if its something else.. but ne way.. its a set up for a movie called i,robot
if u register.. the company FOX is mentioned in the privacy policy.. which is a mistake by the people who made the site.. they could have been even mroe discreet..

but the whole NS-5 idea is superb and well thought up.. especialy the web site and how they make it seem like they are real and they will be released on the market soon..
