    “We will always be together – however faaar it seeems!” No, wait, I can’t imagine anyone ever using their computer for that, it’s sheer science fiction.

    When the microwave goes ‘ping!’ it means your severed human head will be cooked right through. Enjoy!

    Ah if only he had waited 15 years when women will be your ‘best friend’ for money on computers.

    Would have saved him a lot of coding!

    If you could program yourself Sinead O’Connor and a clip-art heart, would you?

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    I’d program her some hair!

    Alternate blurb:

    If you were afraid to reach out and touch real people… would you buy this book?

  7. Calophi Says:

    I don’t think he’s touching a lady-face. She seems to have her hand up to the screen also, so he’s really touching her lady-finger. =D

    I just wasn’t impressed by the “Tron” reboot.

    Published one year before the “Weird Science” movie. Kelly Lebrock w/o hair?

    Reminds me of Lt. Ilia, from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Played by Persis Khambatta.

  11. AceofSpace Says:

    No! Don’t do it! On the Internet every woman is really just a dude!

    Whoever she is, she’s wearing those plastic lips that came out of a Xmas cracker.

    I think this cover is actually showing us the birth of the iPad: the very day when the late Steve Jobs reached out and touched his green-screened Amstrad PCW and said “I can do better than Alan Sugar. Just watch me.”

    Someone paid £3 for a second-hand copy of this book?

    “If you could program yourself a best friend… would you?”

    – In your electric dreams, buster!

    Made me chuckle….and nice follow-up @Tom Noir.

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    If you could program yourself a best friend… should you get out more?

  17. rev Says:

    If I can touch her with my finger then…
    ……I’m going to need a new screen soon…

  18. rev Says:

    What is that anyway? A Commodore 64? How many cassettes would she fill? There’d be more tapes than the entire Harry Secombe collection.

  19. Tom Noir Says:

    This is why I quit eharmony.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    In answer to the question: no, I would not, in case she ended up like this.
