Robots are already taking our jobs. Jus' sayin'. In the near future, hardware & software will replace a good many low~medium skill jobs. Like what Wordpress & Wix have done to web design, or automatic cashiers have done at retail stores. In our reality, there would be a branding component to a high tech android, which might put people off worse than the malware issues. Like when a commercial tries to appropriate slang ~ its very commercialization makes its coolness expire. Interpersonally, accepting an android as a peer, this will factor. Add to this future 3D printing/replication of cheap household goods, and I truly wonder what it will do to the earning potentials of the poor. Particularly in countries with one trick pony economies (oil, widget mass production, etc). Like a real life violation of the prime directive: medieval mindset + modern technology = boom.
