What's Next?

Years ago I published a fictional story on a now defunct online magazine about imported televisions that had bombs inside of them and how I had narrowly escaped death when one blew up in my home.

People were outraged! The numbers were staggering. The comments were all nasty. People hated me for bringing up the idea they might be buying dangerous products and bringing them into their homes.

Wannabe literary critics called my story far fetched and said there was no such way that thousands of exploding TVs would ever get through US Customs.

These days people buy electronics that come with built-in spy ware and computer viruses capable of doing who knows what.

Who knows what they'll come up with next?
