Ah, to start off with a bit of contrary humor. I have always said I didn't want a phone smarter than I am. I guess that is no longer an option.
If I thought these Pentagon plans would actually come into being, I would be celebrating. However, Federal government spending (especially defense spending) is too big a part of the economies of all too many states and cities to be cut effectively. If it is cut effectively, it is too painful for political comfort. And, probably, economic comfort as well.
