(SNN) The Marcomatic Rubio 5000 "politibot", live action almost human-looking droid, created by General Dynamix, has been recalled citing issues with the audio playback feature.

"Our politibots, much like our other products in our Human Function Droid Program, are designed to interact seamlessly with humans," claimed VP of Public Misinformation, infobot Model XMJ47.

"They work well in most fields, particularly math and science positions, but we still have a ways to go with those expected to have a modicum of empathy; politicians, cops, judges, divorce lawyers. These models show this glitch rather quickly."

According to company officials, in the recall notice, signs of an imminent software crash in the politibot models include; sudden overheating, a need for liquid coolant, and a tendency to repeat things over and over like a scratch in a CD or phonographic record.

Consumers who have purchased this model are urged to take it to the nearest factory service centre for hardware and software updates.

"We would like to apologize for any inconvenience a product failure may have caused," said the company representative, "and assure you our other models appear to still be going strong... going strong... going strong."
