Soldiers in Iraq Give Their Robots Female Names

A recent Stars
and Stripes article about robots in Iraq talks about the usual
things we've heard; there are now thousands of robots in Iraq, they're
saving lives (at least the robots that aren't killing people are saving
lives), and soldiers love 'em. There's one
interesting new item in this story though. The ground forces are
beginning to give their robots female names, following the WWII
tradition that led to naming bombers after women. Will robots with sexy
nose art be next?
