Artificial Intelligence or Natural Stupidity?

Artificial Intelligence? Well in the movies it never seems to end well. “I will build a fleet of robot slaves to serve us. Do not be concerned,  nothing can possibly go wrong.”

And speaking of AI, since the phone company reset my demonically possessed phone, it has no more incidents of self-determination and bazaar behavior. I wonder if it has undergone permanent destruction to its self-determination center (like a phone lobotomy) or if it merely sedated (like with a dose of Thorazine)   and will go completely bananas when the sedative wears off.  

“The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim.” Edsger Danka

"Computers aren't intelligent, they only think they are."
"The attention span of a computer is only as long as its electric cord."
“No computer has ever been designed that is aware of what it's doing; but most of the time, we aren't either.” Marvin Minsky
