The Internet Age has these many years stumbled along without its muse. But now it's found Odd Todd and his autobiographical cartoon, "Laid Off: A Day in the Life."
A survey of dot-com employees who have been laid off found that 51 percent were not interested in working in the Internet industry again. The poll--conducted by Vault, a company that offers career and workplace information--found that the other 49 percent would still work at an Internet company again. The study polled nearly 300 laid-off workers.

By Graeme Wearden Scientists are close to releasing a commerical model of a slug-hunting robot that is powered by the slimy creatures it catches. The four-wheeled SlugBot uses image sensors to tell the difference between slugs, snails and worms, and then picks up the prey with its claw arm. Researchers at the University of the West of England in Bristol have spent just under $300,000 to develop SlugBot. Commercial models, when available, are expected to sell for around $1,400.
