you mean something like the laptop saying "do you really want to post that? think twice!"
the car "my, my, we are in a bad hurry today, aren't we? Should I tell your handy so it calls the cops?"
the TV "no you won't look Science Fiction today, there's a lovely series on knitting patterns I don't want to miss."
the housedoor not opening a whole week for having been slammed ...
the lights only very dim because the lamps suffer a depression ...
two mercedes benz on the highway having a go at each other like bulls in the arena ...

it will be interesting, the future, unforunately ...
