RE: Telling HAL what to do (instead of where to go)

The dangers of voice recognition -- be careful what you wish for, you just
might get it:

At a Sacramento PC User's Group meeting, a company was demonstrating its 
latest speech-recognition software. A representative from the company 
was just about ready to start the demonstration and asked everyone in the 
room to quiet down.

Just then someone in the back of the room yelled:

"Format - C - Colon - Return."

To which someone else added:

"Y - Return"

...everyone was quite impressed with how well the software worked!
