  1. During Tesla's earnings call yesterday, Elon Musk admitted that one component of its automated process to make cars was "ironically foolish." He was referring to the placement and bonding of fiberglass mats to the top of battery packs by robots.
  2. A Japanese electronics repair company held a traditional funeral for old generations of Sony's AIBO robot dogs. The dearly departed robot pups will be scrapped for parts, similar to organ donors.
