It can be very scary!
One thing I noticed in I Robot was that in many ways the development of the robot mirrored that of the computer!

One thing which I find quite scary at times (and I bet Nigel Kneale didn't get royalties ) was that there was a SF horror written by Nigel Kneale (Quatermass et al.) for the BBC in the 60s (which I would love to watch! BBC are really missing something here- what with Big Brother et al- tghey could have a real poke at them) called "The Year of the Sex Olympics" which gives a scary account of reality TV0- in the 1960s!

read the wikipedia page- its too complex for me to explain!
