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.

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.
