The Scientific American has a coup with its article by Bill Gates on A Robot in Every Home.

I like this sentence which comes near his conclusion:

In fact, as mobile peripheral devices become more and more common, it may be increasingly difficult to say exactly what a robot is. Because the new machines will be so specialized and ubiquitous–and look so little like the two-legged automatons of science fiction–we probably will not even call them robots.

That may be a truer summary of the situation than the title of his article, but the right headline for the right person can still make the news. Check it out.
