    Or maybe worry a lot.  Some color copiers already block the copying of currency.  Laptops rat out thieves to their owners.  A device with access to the internet - that could be mandatory as it is now with some video games and consoles - could rat out its owner for attempting to print firearms.

    Imagine getting these messages from your printer:

    I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
    You'd better start running, I've already called the cops.
    I guess I left out the good part.  Some game consoles do that now if you try any hardware hacks or attempt to use unauthorized programs.  Hitler found this out the hard way.
