    I asked 'Watson.' Watson said, "We can do that!"

    I like 'Watson.'

    Scary stuff.

    No longer did machines require six-figure investments; they could be purchased for $30,000, or even leased at an hourly rate. As a result, a new generation of robots was winding up on the floors of small- and medium-size companies that had previously depended only on the workers who lived just beyond their doors. Companies now could pick between two versions of the American worker — humans and robots. And at Tenere Inc., where 132 jobs were unfilled on the week the robots arrived, the balance was beginning to shift.

    Rise of the machines

    I didn't see it, but there is a video of where a dog pooped on an apartment floor during the night, and a robot vacuum came thru and spread the stuff all thru the carpeted house, as it 'cleaned'.....

    The "solution" - get a robotic dog, no more "poop" problem.
