Prometheus Goes Viral: Happy Birthday David

Prometheus is almost here, folks, and it seems like more and more of the film's world is being revealed each week.  The latest is a faux product introduction to David, the android played by Michael Fassbender.  Like all good creepy bots before him, David exists in the uncanny valley between the good and evil of his (its?) own subservience. While he expresses gratitude for his creators and naively professes an abhorrence of cruelty and unnecessary violence, he menacingly states his primary function is to do anything, including "directives that [his] human counterparts might find distressing or...unethical."   Only a few prototypes away from Ash, right?
