As they begin to consider their interface designs and button positions, I have a suggestion for the big soulless corporations. Since everything seems to have a mic, a speaker, and a computer in it, they need to set up some protocols.
Write some software that filters the audio in the area looking for phrases like, "I hate corporations", "corporations are evil", "I support Occupy Wall Street", and so on. Have it trigger a response where the device says, "Right on, brother, I'm with you! Stick it to the man!" and shuts off and will not restart for an hour.
Since they can already shut off cars, cell phones, and Apple devices remotely, all that is needed is the software to filter the words and the tie-in to the power.
I'd even be okay if the devices came back on after an apology, "Ohhh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean Apple, I love Apple. Who's the good little iPhone? Please come back."
