MORNING HEADLINES: Robot-on-robot action

Posted on Tue, Aug 30, 2011 at 7:41 AM

Simmer down — After that exciting, hot, hot weekend, temperatures drop! To the freezer-like 70s. (SR)

To violate — The Endangered Species Act. That is, Jeremy Hill, of Bonners Ferry, is being tried for violating the act after he shot and killed a Grizzly bear on his property this spring. Yesterday, his legal team argued that he was simply protecting his family. Here's an idea: Don't live in Grizzly bear country! (Reuters)

Or not to violate — The wolf hunt begins in Idaho. For seven months, the good people of Idaho — including Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Piggies — will hunt down and take out nature's fiercest terrorists. (AP)

First Steve Jobs, now this?! — Robots won't be taking over the world. It turns out, instead of being smart, they're jokesters. And kind of petty. What a let down. Watch them chat below. (Atlantic Wire)
