Step by step

Foxconn have been working on this for some time. From the Independent we hear

60,000 workers at Apple supplier Foxconn have been replaced with robots, according to reports.

Perhaps the Chinese government has an expanding role for all those dumped workers.

I can't read Chinese, so that's a busted flush as far as I'm, concerned.

Mind you, I don't listen much to the BBC so what's different?

Scrobs - Google will translate Chinese for you, but probably not the BBC dialect.

Sam - I think Cameron is one of those prose robots.

James - and they are evolving.
