Beginning to Use Computer 'Robots' for Menial Tasks

Why build expensive robots when you can slap a face on a flatpanel monitor and store its functions in a small computer? Yet another awesome effect of the microchip: making cheap replacements for jobs nobody'd be happy at anyway.

A generation of accountants and engineers cried out in droves when they witnessed what the calculator could do to their work hours. Fields of sweat lay behind them and a cool glistening six-inch deep pond surrounded by wood nymphs waited ahead. But did they fall below the daily grind? No! They started using their time better, dagnabbit. The utilitarian dream still lives on in pleasureland. Thank you, lord microchip. Thank you.
