    I think the better question would be, What If someone,somehow, disabled our ability to use our computers, labtops and or the web. Can you Imagine all the functions this would stop. Just think how dependent we and our government are on computers!!

      Computers made our life a little easier. Made our world smaller. But I dont think they can enslave us...
      "Most complex problems do have a solution. It is only that we don't attempt to think. So let's apply: Dont just do something, sit there."

        'Course you can program puny little lines like "a machine may never harm a human" or whatever, but someday an AI will be smart (or dumb) enough to judge his own goal above that rule.
        I guess military droids will be the first to mess things up, probably friendly fire someday. But eventually it's perfectly possible for some future "intelligent" battlebot to decide something that's not good for our health.

        Don't think humans are wise enough to never make an AI capable of such decisions.
        And don't think humans are smart enough to keep such an AI away from a potentally harmfull machine.

        Anyway, by the time humanity is extinct, we won't have the environment to worry about  ;D
