    The current headlines seem to be focused on the extremely impressive things that are finding their way to CeBIT. My headlines, like usual, will focus on the general oddities of the technology world. Like the Japanese robot that smiles as it gives you a tissue (when you sneeze, of course). Personally, I think it's rather charming...which is exactly the thing's goal. This robot has a brilliant little feature which is used for "gathering information about the people it encounters on the job". You can rent this adorable little spy for five days for the low low price of 100,000 Yen (around $835 USD). If you want a quick giggle at Google's attempt to translate the Japanese product page, click here.

    English is such an easy language!!! you get perfect Czech Translaters that translate from japanese/english into Czech perfectly. and every czech word can be changed minimumly into 3 different versions of it. some words have up to 20 different endings!!!:eek:

    Wow, that's just strange. Now I'll just be waiting for the time when the little robots malfunction and those smiles turn into scowls and they start destroying things...
