Biting on Apple
Prince William is worried.
Yesterday, speaking at a conference for leading digital and technological entrepreneurs from the UK and around the world - The Founders Forum - he told of his concerns relating to cyber-bullying of children. In fact he is "appalled". However, William embraces technology, often like many of his age utilising his smart-phone for "news, sport, music and the odd bit of gaming".
Apparently though, the fly in the ointment in terms of prevention of cyber-bullying is Apple; they have not yet been tempted to board William's crusade.
Whilst at the event Wills was introduced to "the most humanoid robot ever created" which goes by the name Nao. It attemped to dance for the Prince to Daft Punk's Get Lucky however fell over and had to be righted, it's internal gyroscope failing.
He also marvelled at a "human-sized" drone designed to carry an individual 100 metres into the air. However, it too failed, it's cargo, a Juergen Weigl, having eaten too many hamburgers.
Sometimes I see positives in failure.
