I just tuned in to the discussion about robots - we were talking about this the other day. I'm waiting desperately for my "Rosie" from the Jetsons - cooking, cleaning, and helping with homework!

How utterly timely!! FOXnews did a segment on a robot that 'woke up' and nearly killed a man. The web is full of news stories on such muderous behaviors by certain robots. This is scary....please mention.
