At the risk of sounding like a whiny appeal, this is my idea, likely mentioned elsewhere before:
Cybernetics Insurance, brought to you in partnership between Sense/Net, Genetek, and Saedor Krupp. When you update at Sense/Net for an additional fee you can take out cybernetics insurance. In the event of clone death, Genetek through the magic of science and some extremely expensive equipment brought to us courtesy of SK, cybernetics implantation is incorporated into the cloning process.
I argue that dieing is a huge disincentive to getting lots of cyber at all. Hell, if a clone is like the best deal in life insurance in the history of mankind, why can't I insure a couple chunks of plasteel and silicon?
Clone banks, does this mean that I have a hunk of flesh sitting somewhere, waiting for me to die, or does this mean that my genetic data etc is stored for me somewhere and Genetek just "creates" the flesh and bone on demand? This is likely covered elsewhere, but just asking for clarity and cant find a relevant post at the moment. If its the case that Genetek 'creates' the flesh, why oh why can't SK and Genetek join corporate hands and provide a wonderful service for us?
