more ?s about the XL3600 ...

This may be a good opportunity for me to perform a bit of market
research. One of the first applications we plan to market along with
the XL3600 is a speaker-independent speech recognition system that is
able to detect use of the word "UN*X" in continuous speech. Upon
detection, a high frequency signal is sent out that is precisely tuned
to the speaker's alpha waves, creating a reverse-feedback loop that
blows out the speaker's cerebral cortex and renders him/her incapable of
further speech. The question I have for you all is: should we sell this
application as a layered product, or should we bundle it?
This seems unnecessarily hostile. Wouldn't it be a good showcase for the
state-of-the-art Adaptive Programming Environment (APE)?
Upon detection of the aforementioned word, the system would
1) disable all input-editors, document examiners, ...
2) replace ":" by "-" as the keyword trigger in commands and
functions, and replace all keywords by thier first character
(randomizing case, of course).
And, last but not least:
3) disable all vowel mechanisms in the speech generator, fonts and,
assuming it has one, keyboard.
