Androids quotes by Philip K. Dick
#2. The video of 'Paranoid Android' has been censored by MTV. They took all nipples out of the cartoon, but they had no problem with the scene in which a man cuts off his own arms and legs. - Author: Thom Yorke
Androids quotes by Thom Yorke

Androids quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
#5. Ugly's still ugly, no matter how you see it."
"An interesting assertion. Justify it."
"You bring twenty people in here," Adam told him, "and they'll all say the same thing. They'll all say you're ugly."
"Bring in twenty of me," Art said, "and we'd all say your ass is prettier than your face."
"There aren't twenty of you."
"No, you're right. I'm unique. So I can safely say that all androids find you ugly. Not all humans find me ugly. So, technically, I'm better looking than you, using objective criteria. - Author: Bernard Beckett
Androids quotes by Bernard Beckett
#6. We will not have humanoid androids. It's interesting: when you start trying to make robots look more human, you end up making them look more grotesque. It takes very little to go from super-attractive robot to hideous robot. - Author: Colin Angle
Androids quotes by Colin Angle
#7. Android is ahead of the iPhone now, - Author: Eric Schmidt
Androids quotes by Eric Schmidt
#8. Humans are creatures of memory. They love their fond recollections, and even their painful ones. They revisit them and revise them. It makes them who they are. Or they choose who they are through the memories they decide to keep. - Author: Paul Kitcatt
Androids quotes by Paul Kitcatt
#9. Dr. Laas made a modest shrug. "I and a few fellow scientists came up with the design for Shareem. Rio and Rees were some of our very best."
The woman's startled gaze flicked back to Rio. "Are they androids? Not real?"
"Oh, I'm real, darlin'," Rio said softly. "Very, very real. I think you saw how real."
She drew a breath. "I think I don't understand."
Dr. Laas opened her hands. "The Shareem might have been a mistake. Maybe we got carried away playing gods." Her smile turned wicked. "But oh, what workmanship."
"Thank you," Rio said dryly. - Author: Allyson James
Androids quotes by Allyson James
#10. I have a glitch, too. Sometimes I forget that I'm not human. I don't think that happens to most androids. - Author: Marissa Meyer
Androids quotes by Marissa Meyer
#11. Android has been managed essentially to make it a profitless prosperity. Right now, if Google is not careful, Android will be Samsung or Samsung will be Android. - Author: Roger McNamee
Androids quotes by Roger McNamee
#12. I think right now it's a battle for the mindshare of developers and for the mindshare of customers, and right now iPhone and Android are winning that battle. - Author: Steve Jobs
Androids quotes by Steve Jobs
#13. Android is a new form of the other, but you can parallel the other to so many different types of people. Even if you don't consider yourself to be the other, at one point in time I'm sure you felt like that. - Author: Janelle Monae
Androids quotes by Janelle Monae
#14. I do not know how much money Britney Spears earned last year.. However, I do know that it's not enough for me to want her life, were I given the option to have it. Every day, random people use Britney's existence as currency; they talk about her public failures and her lack of talent as a way to fill the emptiness of their own normalcy. She - alone with Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton and all those androids from The Hills - are the unifying entities within this meta era. In a splintered society, they are the means through which people devoid of creativity communicate with each other. THey allow Americans to understand who they are and who they are not; they allow Americans to unilaterally agree on something they never needed to consciously consider. A person like Britney Spears surrenders her privacy and her integrity and the rights to her own persona, and in exchange we give her huge sums of money. But she still doesn't earn a fraction of what she warrants in free-trade economy. If Britney Spears were paid $1 every time a self-loathing stranger used her as a surrogate for his own failure, she would out earn Warren Buffet in three months. This is why entertainers (and athletes) make so much revenue but are still wildly underpaid: We use them for things that are worth more than money. It's a new kind of dehumanizing slavery - not as awful as the literal variety, but dehumanizing nonetheless. - Author: Chuck Klosterman
Androids quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#15. Do Androids Dream Of Emma Peel? - Author: Kirkland Ciccone
Androids quotes by Kirkland Ciccone
#16. When they reached a maintenance closet, Iko ushered the escort-droid inside.
"I want you to know that I hold nothing against you," she said, by way of introduction. "I understand that it isn't your fault your programmer had so little imagination."
The escort-droid held her gaze with empty eyes.
"In another life, we could have been sisters, and I feel it's important to acknowledge that."
A blank stare. A blink, every six seconds.
"But as it stands, I'm a part of an important mission right now, and I cannot be swayed from my goal by my sympathy for androids who are less advanced than myself."
Nothing.
"All right then." Iko held out her hands. "I need your clothes. - Author: Marissa Meyer
Androids quotes by Marissa Meyer
#17. I feel people think I'm almost like a robot - like an android ... I just don't really get portrayed as someone who has feelings or who is sympathetic ... like a self-absorbed ice queen. - Author: Megan Fox
Androids quotes by Megan Fox
#18. Most of the time, it seems humans don't look any deeper than the outside of things. Which, of course, is how they are fooled by me and my kind. - Author: Paul Kitcatt
Androids quotes by Paul Kitcatt
#19. Mom used to say that the thoughts in our heads were nothing more than electrical impulses. I remember Dad and her talking about this over dinner. It frustrated Dad that the human brain can fire electrical sparks and think, but that the electricity he'd pump into an android brain would never give it independent thought. The body isn't that different from a machine. Humans and androids both run on electricity.
That lightning spark of energy I saw in the reverie.
That was my mother's last thought, an echo of electricity, something that sparked when I entered her dreamscape.
That spark is gone now. Her life is gone now. Everything that made her, her, is gone now. Faded into nothing. - Author: Beth Revis
Androids quotes by Beth Revis
#20. I believe Android will be stronger in the developing world than it is in the developed world. - Author: Fred Wilson
Androids quotes by Fred Wilson
#21. Is the sky painted?" Isidore asked. "Are there really brush strokes that show up under magnification?"

"Yes," Mercer said.

"I can't see them."

"You're too close," Mercer said. "You have to be a long way off, the way the androids are. They have better perspective."

"Is that why they claim you're a fraud?"

"I am a fraud," Mercer said. "They're sincere; their research is genuine. From their standpoint I am an elderly retired bit player named Al Jarry. All of it, their disclosure, is true. They interviewed me at my home, as they claim; I told them whatever they wanted to know, which was everything."

"Including about the whisky?"

Mercer smiled. "It was true. They did a good job and from their standpoint Buster Friendly's disclosure was convincing. They will have trouble understanding why nothing has changed. Because you're still here and I'm still here." Mercer indicated with a sweep of his hand the barren, rising hillside, the familiar place. "I lifted you from the tomb world just now and I will continue to lift you until you lose interest and want to quit. But you will have to stop searching for me because I will never stop searching for you."

"I didn't like that about the whisky," Isidore said. "That's lowering."

"That's because you're a highly moral person. I'm not. I don't judge, not even myself." Mercer held out a closed hand, palm up. "Before I forget it, I have something of y - Author: Philip K. Dick

#22. I need you," he said. Otherwise I'm going to die, he said to himself. I know it; Mercer knew it; I think you know it, too. And I'm wasting my time appealing to you, he reflected. An android can't be appealed to; there's nothing in there to reach.

Rachael said, "I'm sorry, Rick, but I can't do it tonight. It'll have to be tomorrow."

"Android vengeance," Rick said.

"What?"

"Because I tripped you up on the Voigt-Kampff scale."

"Do you think that?" Wide-eyed, she said, "Really?"

"Good-bye," he said, and started to hang up.

"Listen," Rachael said rapidly. "You're not using your head."

"It seems that way to you because you Nexus-6 types are cleverer than humans."

"No, I really don't understand," Rachael sighed. "I can tell that you don't want to do this job tonight - maybe not at all. Are you sure you want me to make it possible for you to retire the three remaining androids? Or do you want me to persuade you not to try? - Author: Philip K. Dick
Androids quotes by Philip K. Dick
#23. Will suddenly remembered that a boy at his old school had had a mum like Fiona - not exactly like her, because it seemed to Will that Fiona was a peculiarly contemporary creation, with her seventies albums, her eighties politics and her nineties foot lotion, but certainly a sixties equivalent of Fiona. Stephen Fullick's mother had a thing about TV, that it turned people into androids, so they didn't have a set in the house. 'Did you see Thund...' Will would say every Monday morning and then remember and blush, as if the TV were a parent who had just died. And what good had that done Stephen Fullick? He was not, as far as Will was aware, a visionary poet, or a primitive painter; he was probably stuck in some provincial solicitor's office, like everyone else from school. He had endured years of pity for no discernible purpose. - Author: Nick Hornby
Androids quotes by Nick Hornby
#24. He followed it down, in full flight now, the trees beginning to close him in, malign and baleful shapes that reared like enormous androids provoked at the alien insubstantiality of this flesh colliding among them. - Author: Cormac McCarthy
Androids quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#25. We (pop stars) are people not androids. We've got views. I've got opinions and I don't see why I shouldn't use a bit of my art to put them over. I think music is one of the most powerful media forces in the world today. - Author: Roger Meddows Taylor
Androids quotes by Roger Meddows Taylor
#26. The classic resignation. Mechanical, intellectual acceptance of that which a genuine organism––with two billion years of the pressure to live and evolve hagriding it––could never have reconciled itself to.

"I can't stand the way you androids give up," he said savagely. - Author: Philip K. Dick
Androids quotes by Philip K. Dick
#27. But as I aged I realized that I did it every day. My schoolmates and neighbors, my family members, my best friend and the boy I had a crush on, they all changed on a day-to-day basis. People changing skin became so normal to me that I no longer felt like change was horrifying. It was good to change what you were into something better. I even wanted that for myself.
Like androids, we humans change our bodies. Often, we do it so much that some of us are more machine than human, really? What makes me more worthy of experiencing a blue sky with voluptuous clouds than Meems? She has value. She's more valuable to society than I am at this point. Yet I still enjoy an aspect of society that she does not. - Author: A.L. Davroe
Androids quotes by A.L. Davroe
#28. I'd always hated cocktail parties. And this one was worse than most. Overdressed pseudo–people smiled plastic smiles, told one–upmanship stories with phony self–deprecation, then half–listened with painted–on sincerity to the one–upmanship rebuttals. Mannequins. Robots. Androids. Pseudo–people laboring in the vineyards of pseudo–intellectualism to gather the bitter grapes of self–aggrandizement. - Author: Walt Shiel
Androids quotes by Walt Shiel
#29. Can I bring my friends?"
"I will personally extend invitations to the entire Rampion crew. We'll make a reunion out of it."
"Even Iko?"
"I'll find her a date."
"Because there's a rule against androids coming to the ball, you know."
"I think I know someone who can change that rule. - Author: Marissa Meyer
Androids quotes by Marissa Meyer
#30. John Isidore said, "I found a spider."

The three androids glanced up, momentarily moving their attention from the TV screen to him.

"Let's see it," Pris said. She held out her hand.

Roy Baty said, "Don't talk while Buster is on."

"I've never seen a spider," Pris said. She cupped the medicine bottle in her palms, surveying the creature within. "All those legs. Why's it need so many legs, J. R.?"

"That's the way spiders are," Isidore said, his heart pounding; he had difficulty breathing. "Eight legs."

Rising to her feet, Pris said, "You know what I think, J. R.? I think it doesn't need all those legs."

"Eight?" Irmgard Baty said. "Why couldn't it get by on four? Cut four off and see." Impulsively opening her purse, she produced a pair of clean, sharp cuticle scissors, which she passed to Pris.

A weird terror struck at J. R. Isidore.

Carrying the medicine bottle into the kitchen, Pris seated herself at J. R. Isidore's breakfast table. She removed the lid from the bottle and dumped the spider out. "It probably won't be able to run as fast," she said, "but there's nothing for it to catch around here anyhow. It'll die anyway." She reached for the scissors.

"Please," Isidore said.

Pris glanced up inquiringly. "Is it worth something?"

"Don't mutilate it," he said wheezingly. Imploringly.

With the scissors, Pris snipped off one of the spider's - Author: Philip K. Dick
Androids quotes by Philip K. Dick
#31. Android's user-space is so different from stock Linux, you can easily say that Android is not in any way a Linux system, except for the kernel. - Author: Robert Love
Androids quotes by Robert Love
#32. The hunger and heat combined, a poisonous taste resembling defeat; yes, he thought, that's what it is: I've been defeated in some obscure way. By having killed the androids? By Rachael's murder of my goat? He did not know, but as he plodded along, a vague and almost hallucinatory pall hazed over his mind; he found himself at one point, with no notion of how it could be, a step from an almost certainly fatal cliffside fall - falling humiliatingly and helplessly, he thought; on and on, with no one even to witness it. Here there existed no one to record his or anyone else's degradation, and any courage or pride which might manifest itself here at the end would go unmarked: the dead stones, the dust-stricken weeds dry and dying, perceived nothing, recollected nothing, about him or themselves.

At that moment the first rock - and it was not rubber or soft foam plastic - struck him in the inguinal region. And the pain, the first knowledge of absolute isolation and suffering, touched him throughout in its undisguised actual form.

He halted. And then, goaded on - the goad invisible but real, not to be challenged - he resumed his climb. Rolling upward, he thought, like the stones; I am doing what stones do, without volition. Without it meaning anything. - Author: Philip K. Dick
Androids quotes by Philip K. Dick
#33. A human being without the proper empathy or feeling is the same as an android built so as to lack it, either by design or mistake. We mean, basically, someone who does not care about the fate which his fellow living creatures fall victim to; he stands detached, a spectator, acting out by his indifference John Donne's theorem that 'No man is an island,' but giving that theorem a twist: that which is a mental and a moral island is not a man. - Author: Philip K. Dick
Androids quotes by Philip K. Dick
#34. I am very happy about Android obviously. I use Android, and it's actually made cellphones very usable. - Author: Linus Torvalds
Androids quotes by Linus Torvalds
#35. Apple might not love me, but I love Apple. - Author: Glenn Beck
Androids quotes by Glenn Beck
#36. We think Android is very, very fragmented, and becoming more fragmented by the day. And as you know, Apple strives for the integrated model so that the user isn't forced to be the systems integrator. - Author: Steve Jobs
Androids quotes by Steve Jobs
#37. Androids were never meant to dream. - Author: Tim Lebbon
Androids quotes by Tim Lebbon
#38. Yes, virus companies are playing on your fears to try to sell you bs protection software for Android, RIM and IOS. They are charlatans and scammers. IF you work for a company selling virus protection for android, rim or IOS you should be ashamed of yourself. - Author: Chris DiBona
Androids quotes by Chris DiBona
#39. I'm carrying an iPhone 5. I like this device. It's been impressive. I have a Windows and an Android device ... I carry an iPad. I carry a Kindle ... Yeah, I have a lot of devices. - Author: Randall L. Stephenson
