Cool, thanks! I should read them in English someday, plus the Foundation Trilogy since everyone seems to rave about it so much. Just have to add it to my to-read list.

Asmiov woule have loved this robot. Or would he?

Tough call, but Dextre is still pretty cool. Not too keen on the whole "new Robot Order" thing, though.

I think he would have been floored by Dexter, but a little disapointed that "it" couldnt think for "it's self" Were a little behind in robotics than they figured in the 40's & 50's.....or so we think....

I have to say...Asimov is one of my single favorite authors. I have read all the entire three series (robot, empire, foundation). I don't think most readers even now realize the impact he's had. He invented the concept of the positronic brain, the three laws, etc etc. They don't realize that "Bicentennial Man" was written in the 1940s and is still a very contemporary story. Noone, I don't think even my favorite Koontz, could ever have the impact that this man has.
