Life is good for Steve Wozniak's dog, who eats filet mignon and chicken for dinner each night. The Apple co-founder started the practice, he explained at Austin's Freescale technology forum yesterday, once he realized that robots will one day take over the world and make us humans their pets, the Guardian reports. Wozniak was initially worried about robots taking over the world, he said, but then he realized said robots are "going to be smarter than us and if they’re smarter than us then they’ll realize they need us. ... They’ll know they have to keep nature, and humans are part of nature." He continued, "We want to be the family pet and be taken care of all the time." Thus, his dog's new gourmet dinners, which Wozniak sees as a "do unto others as you would have them do unto you"-type move. (More Steve Wozniak stories.)
