"Where Are All of the Robots"

As you all know it is now 2010. We live in the most technological age of this planet. We have reached into the stars to find out if we are alone in the universe, while still finding out the secrets of our own planet. Growing up 2010 seemed so far away. Not just for me but it seemed that it did for everyone. Looking back at the pop culture of decades past the future was always around this time. Watching movies from the 50’s to the 80’s the 21st century was to be so advanced. People had robots, flying cars, etc. So why don’t we have personal robots that clean our house, mow the lawn or just do our job for us? I understand why we don’t but I guess I just kind of expect we should. It would be great to have a robot do my job for me so I could chill at the crib and still get paid. Now I am not lazy, I work hard and do my job well. In fact all of us here at SoftLayer work hard and perform them with an excellence that is not matched in the industry. That is why we are where we are, the leaders of IT. This is the best job I have ever had and I enjoy working here. It would be nice though to be able to stay at home and watch movies, play video games or just chill with friends while I send my robot to work for me and collect my paycheck. That would be cool. So I ask with all of the technology we have and the things that we can do with that technology, where are all of the robots? Oh and I want a flying car too!
