Apparently they're not as smart as they thought they were.

Mistakes were made ..
"It appears ... the narrative on this topic has been stretched to the point where hypothetical and actual scenarios are blurred."

Sounds like any teenager anywhere.

Sounds like the premise for a Calvin and Hobbes strip.

"Judi, why is the website down?"

"It's being attacked by three million toothbrushes."

"Well, that makes more sense than TypePad's guru going off and meditating."

What idiot feels the need to connect his toothbrush to the Internet?

The crime scene was scrubbed clean where detectives described the perfect crime as death by 3 million brush strokes.

This is nothing to the damage that can be inflicted by 3 million squirrels, especially those with STEM degrees.

3 million Taylor Swift fans just brought down the Super Bowl.

The presence of millions of smart toothbrushes in CA has triggered state lawmakers to ban such weapons just as they did with fuel-powered landscaping tools.

The reporting of this crisis caries the day.

I wouldn't want a toothbrush that is smarter than I am.
