Retro Robots on the Battlefield

"Maybe the rainbow pattern will make them think it's friendly?"
I've got a piece up at Lightspeed Magazine about how robots have been fighting our wars for more than half a century -- in the form of drones, smart torpedoes, and, basically, sentient guns. Yet we always flatter ourselves with the idea that we are living through a sea change of technology. Wrong again, humans. :)

robo buzz

Is there such a thing as too brainy?

USA Today put a bit about ROBOPOCALYPSE into the Book Buzz section. Just three more months before the robot apocalypse hits planet earth like a tidal wave of buzz saws. If you want to stay up to date with this madness, you should probably facebook-ify the architect of humankind's demise --> Archos R-14.
