The sensor was built as part of the company's CeNSE (Central Nervous System for the Earth) research program, which intends to build a global sensing network to measure and track changes in a wide range of things around the world.

    Then it will crash a few days after the warranty expires...I'd love to see a Terminators face when it tries to deal with HP "Support"- no wonder they go postal !

    T-888, I'd like you to Meet "Derek" and "Brunhilda" from Pakistan....

    True enough, not to mention the fact that any terminator worth its hydraulic fluid would be able to mimic the CS "representative's" voice. Wouldn't that be a hoot? They'd have to listen to all their BS and misinformation in their own broken English, right before they were tracked down and killed. Or should I say, "terminated, with extreme prejudice"?
