Is "Bonjour" the beginning of SkyNet?

Bonjour is a network discovery technology developed by Apple, Inc. It allows computers and printers to automatically find and connect to each other's services using a new communication protocol, saving time and simplifying tasks such as file sharing and setting up printers.

So....my computer is off, but Fred's is on. SkyN...I mean Bonjour.. turns it on and connects?

So they talk to my toaster and my ROOMBA and electrocute me in the shower?

Creepy

Always Turn Computing Devices OFF + UnPlug,When you're not there!

(At least until Interpol starts Guillotining some of the "Hackers")

Then you won't have any such worries/problems!
