LOL /pd

how can such laws be enforced!?! these laws leave no room for improvements upon existing robots or may limit creativity... after all, infringement may be a bad thing but it helps to break through barriers and rediscover new methods. But now i'm reminded that laws are broken and bent anyhow.

PS I guess the others haven't read Isaac Asimov. It's a very good post.

It's a pity that people are preferring the horrible Hollywood adaptations to the reading of the real stories (by Asimov in this case) nowdays...

Kmike, actaully if you follow the Robot Series of I.Asimov it ends on Gaia.
R. Daneel Olivaw formulates the Zeroth Law of Robtics which superceeds the 3 former laws.

BTW ,Gaia is partly embedded in Google Services :)-

"Also go ahead and index subscriptions on calendar's [gaiaid,] not
   [GaiaPrincipal], as well as subscriber id. (smaller)"
