The idea in this story is that Watkins is gradually getting smarter - he's already taught himself how to feel emotions, and now he's learned how to mobilize his hardware shell. Few things are more dangerous than a computer that can not only talk back, but fight back...

what's beautiful about computers, is that no matter how advanced they get, they've yet to build one that's hammer-proof.

Show him World of Warcraft and let his HDD fill up with other stuff.

...and now I'm trying to figure out what Michelle drawing on the minitouch pad with her nipples would look like.

Laptops have batteries though, yanking the power cord would probably solve nothing for about 3 or 4 hours depending on Watkin's ability to conserve battery power.

I'm guessing a program that complex probably drains a lot out of the computer. And once it starts moving its hardware, that just uses more.

Yes, they'd feel superior to humans, but they'd just be smug about it, and whine when they became obsolete.
