What?
You telling me that a Reuters robot gets his 1D X without pre-ordering?

That's soooo unfair :( :(

Seriously...that's why the 1DX got delayed so many times--they needed to install robotic functionality and give the entire first batch to a robot.  That's awesome.

.

Looks like a hell of a fun job setting that up.

Nice to see at least one wire service has money for this kind of tech!

Thanks for the link.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

I have been concerned about robots stealing my place in line for a variety of high tech products.  I finally found protection from the robot threat through Old Glory Insurance Co.  Details of their policy can be found at the following link:

I guess you could say "built by and for robots". If you ask nicely, maybe the robots will make a 1DX for you.

I wonder if future version will still have buttons for human use.
