Talking US father names son 'Version 2.0'

A proud US father and self-confessed engineering "geek" has named his son after a computer software term. Jon Blake Cusack, from Holland, Michigan, told local newspapers the US practice of adding "Junior" or "II" after a boy's name was too common.

I would put money on that being changed within the kid's childhood so it's Jr. or II or something other than "Version 2.0."

My question is, when does version 2.1 come out?

9 months time

That would be 3.0, 'bot.

2.1 comes in six months with the ability to eat solids.
2.2 features the upgrade to speech capability (8 months or so, the due date is, as always, tentative)
2.3, the second scariest upgrade, features upright mobility.

At age 4, Jon 2.7 will jump from Jon v 2.7 to Jon '08, and will be completely incompatible with Jon v 3.0, which is why most geeks suggest getting v 3.0 out before v 2.5 (age 3.5) is available to everyone.

Would it be wrong of me to make a joke about Micheal Jackson wishing he had 'Version 2.0' to download?
