Notes from the Electronic Cottage 9/23/10

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

A good day for some catch up to see what has developed on topics we’ve
discussed on past programs, like…

Does making your whereabouts known on social sites tell thieves you’re not
at home and effectively says “please rob me”? A case in New Hampshire sure
seems like it does.

Will an obtuse software court case deciding whether you actually own or only
license software you purchase make any difference in our lives? Hint: yup.

How do you feel about robots that can deceive humans as well as other
robots? Better decide because they are in labs now and may be coming to the
rest of the world soon.

Happy autumn!
