Sony robots dream of becoming submissive employees

Restrictions in a workplace? Well, I can't use Internet at work. I was asked politely twice. Last time it was a hush-hush "You better not use the internet. We got the reports and we don't want you in trouble so just don't use internet". I wonder if they come the third time. On the other topic why bother having humans when you can have Dancing Robots. Who knows, maybe your next employee produced by Sony will not need to surf the net. He will dance for you anytime you want it to.
Sony's SDR-4X, bigger and better than the 3X unveiled a year-and-a-half ago, sought to steal the spotlight from Asimo, which Honda is already leasing out to International Business Machines Corp and other companies as a high-tech receptionist and hospitality robot.
