    It’s obviously aimed at Apple’s “don’t you dare try to upgrade or repair yourself. WE control all aspects of these machines, and you WILL pay what we say you will” attitude.

    Calvin usually HATES rules, so I consider his hissy fit over this deliciously ironic. :)

    You’re mistaken. From the episode:

    Captain James T. Kirk: There were many men aboard those ships. They were murdered. Must you survive by murder?

    M-5: This unit cannot murder.

    Captain James T. Kirk: Why?

    M-5: Murder is contrary to the laws of man and God.

    Captain James T. Kirk: But you HAVE murdered. Scan the starship Excalibur, which you destroyed. Is there life aboard?

    M-5: No life.

    Captain James T. Kirk: Because you MURDERED it. What is the penalty for murder?

    M-5: Death.

    Captain James T. Kirk: And how will you pay for your acts of murder?

    M-5: This – unit – must – die.

    Ah, but you’re asking for a lot of trouble. The M5 will try to take over and kill people. You’ll have to convince it that it’s wrong to do so…

    Only temporary

    There’s no reason why Calvin’s subconscious couldn’t give form to what Hobbes does. Could a REAL kid make up Hobbes? Very unlikely, but Calvin himself isn’t a real kid. He has capabilities that go far beyond that of any real six year old.

    Yes they did.

    Yes it could be hypocrisy as well. OTOH, a secondary meaning for irony is “incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs”. We don’t expect Calvin to demand that “rules” be followed.

    Oh yes, we know that Hobbes never says no to smooches from Susie, which drives Calvin crazy. :)

    Calvin complaining about someone not following the rules. Oh the irony.
