The Microsoft Robot Is At Your Command
So...normally on Friday, we run reader feedback. But since we haven't had any
reader feedback since before Thanksgiving (Thursday of last week, for those
of you outside the U.S.), we're going to keep this Friday issue of RCPU fairly
short and hopefully somewhat sweet. Don't let us down during this festive season,
though -- an e-mail to RCPU (at email@example.com
is the gift that we'll give right back to you in this space next week.
Anyway, we had to smile today at a story out of Japan, where a company called
ZMP has developed a two-legged robot that runs
on Microsoft robotics software. Now, there's an unfathomable number of jokes
we could make about crashes, security flaws and maybe even how the Microsoft
robot keeps accusing the Linux robot of stealing all its best tricks, but we'd
rather turn the floor over to you.
We'd like to know what you would want your Microsoft robot to do. It can be
anything, really -- well, anything fit to print in a family-friendly newsletter,
we suppose. Would you want it to get you a cold beverage during the game? Actually
figure out licensing terms for virtualization technologies? Develop a coherent
SaaS strategy? Redesign the partner program Web site?
The Microsoft robot is at your command. Send your instructions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
