I'm not sure what you mean here, A.saji.

@Rob: Yes but being on the defensive mode will not be a good move at all especially in the long run.

That's probably correct, Nancy. This stoy made it clear to me why some companies have decided not to leave the shore.

Good point, Nancy. I'm sure wives and husbands use this spying technique all the time. Kidding aside (I think), you're right about the lack of protections.

It seeems they must have an unexpected level of naivete, Rob - anyone in manufacturing for any length of time would have realized such pitfalls were strong possibilities. Seems like they need to get some folks experienced in offshore manufacturing on board.

Thanks, Rob. One worry i always have with portable devices is that if someone else gets a hold of it - will they be able to access accounts that i wouldn't want them to? I have actually been rather shocked at some practices (or lack thereof) of some big players that could easily endanger security by allowing access too easily...

I don't know what they were expecting, Nancy. These are common problems. In this particular case, a crew was trained in manufacturing the robots. Then the crew left for better jobs and they were replaced by workers who were not properly trained. They didn't expect that.

I think it's both Nancy. At least I talked about both on the show floor. Not sure what exactly Dominic meant. Most people talked in terms of user interface, but I did hear mentions many times of data protection.

An Israeli design student has created a series of unique pieces of jewelry that can harvest energy from default movements of the body and even use human blood as a way to conduct energy.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
Help us recognize engineers who are ahead of the trends and making big moves in the design engineering community.
Robots in films during the 2000s hit the big time; no longer are they the sidekicks of nerdy character actors. Robots we see on the big screen in recent years include Nicole Kidman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Eddie Murphy. Top star of the era, Will Smith, takes a spin as a robot investigator in I, Robot. Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
