    I hope they're immune to viruses so they won't start friendly firing randomly.

    A likely scenario but I know the computer systems responsible for their operation are up to date on their security systems.

    If you stripped them of weaponry and add a camera you could spy on people easily like terrorists or college cheerleaders. [​IMG]

    i wonder why gbatemp has this piece of news... is it cuz it's handheld?

    I would rather concentrate my energy into improving the economy and not making new things that go totally against it... though the economy is a dying machine on which medicine (bailouts) would be wasteful
