Feed Engadget: iRobot readying bigger, deadlier Warrior X700 robot (

Filed under: Robots

It looks like those that found iRobot's earlier Warrior robots a tad lacking could soon have some of their demands answered in the form of the new and improved Warrior X700, which the company recently took the wrap off. Weighing in at a hefty 250 pounds, this one promises to carry a 500 pound payload with ease, and lift upwards of 150 pounds with its robotic arm. Of course, with a name like "Warrior," it'll also be doing more than just carrying supplies, with it just as capable of firing a machine gun or some 40mm explosive rounds, the latter of which can be done at 16 rounds a second. The bot's apparently not ready to be put into service just yet, however, with it currently only able to muster up a top speed of ten miles per hour, although iRobot says it'll be able to do a four-minute mile by the time it ships out in the second half of next year.

They look at Drupal, Plone, Mambo, and WordPress for content management, then consider MediaWiki, WikiSpaces, PBWiki, DokuWiki and TWiki for enterprise Wiki options. Their recommendations? "For a large site with a lot of content, consider Drupal. It's powerful and flexible, has a very strong and helpful user community, and the development team has done a good job of addressing user concerns with each release. For a smaller site or for a less technically inclined team, Wordpress with CMS plug-ins should meet your needs. It's beloved by the blogging community, and for good reason. The documentation is top notch, the forums are helpful, and it's straightforward to set up.""

Submission + - Transferred to The Pirate Bay (

An anonymous reader writes: Andrej Preston, ex-administrator of legendary BitTorrent, has turned over the keys to The Pirate Bay.

"My deal with [The Pirate Bay] was that the role of SuprNova can't change much," he tells "It needs to be community orientated, but I hope they make some updates the SuprNova was sooo missing. But what they will do, it's not my thing to decide anymore. But I know they will do [well] and will try to keep the community spirit running."
