The world of robotics has a new gorilla entrepreneur, Google. Google has promptly made a swift seven-company robotic acquisition deal in the past six months. And this Friday it had completed the acquisition of Boston Dynamics, engineering company that has designed robots for the Pentagon. Boston Dynamics produced robots like BigDog, Cheetah, WildCat and Atlas. You can check out a video of the WildCat performance in Youtube. What is the Google trying to do with robots? In 1962 Bob Taylor and Information Processing Techniques Office (IPTO) brought forth the Internet in seven short years. In this rapidly changing technology Google will not miss the opportunity to build winning technology business. However, nobody knows exactly what will come up with this new technology. People can only speculate that Google plans to use robots to automate the delivery of its self-driving cars, whereas Amazon dreams of drones to transport goods to its customers by air. In this time of job crisis, even as unemployment has inched down, the economy has created barely enough jobs to match population growth. The enormous labor market will contribute to lowering wages for many unskilled people. And their bargaining position will be weaker if advanced automated system takes over human in production.

Email is one of those things that's just a part of your life, period. Most of us know someone who has closed their Facebook account or refused to join in the first place in a little foot-stomping stand by their ego, and you might even know someone who is thrilled with themselves for not owning a smartphone.
