Terminator or 1984?

Which will come first? That's usually the question that pops into my head when I read stories like this one. Check it out:

Although English teachers at Warren Central applaud the computer's ability to evaluate spelling, punctuation, grammar and organization, Richard Reed, the department chairman, made it clear that "we are not 100 percent sold on the computer's ability to grade content."

I'm actually a strange mix of impressed and scared that some people are just "not 100 percent sold" on the content issue. I'm telling you, when computers get better at parallel processing (as opposed to the traditional serial variety), we're not going to have too many advantages left. So, will it be Arnold or Orwell?
