ASIMO to Conduct Symphony Orchestra 86

DeviceGuru writes to mention that Honda's ASIMO robot will apparently be leading the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in a performance of "Impossible Dream" from the conductors podium. Along with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the mechanical marvel will hopefully have a better performance than some of the earlier public appearances. "Honda says it is giving the Detroit Symphony Orchestra a gift of more than $1 million to create The Power of Dreams Music Education Fund. The fund is intended to help the Detroit Public Schools, which has suffered from severe cost constraints that have hurt the district's ability to provide music education, offer students the opportunity to learn to play instruments, read music, and participate in bands or orchestras."

Submission + - Democrats blocking permenant ban on Net Tax (technewsworld.com) 1

slashkossucks writes: Net neutrality? How about the ban on taxing internet access? For 10 years now, Americans have enjoyed tax free access to the internet. None of the annoying fees and surcharges that are all-too-familiar with telephone bills are allowed. However, this ban is about to expire, and the consumer is the one who will pay the price if it does. Senator McCain and other Republicans would like to re-instate the ban, making it permanent. But Democrats are blocking this effort. Shame on them. And shame on Slashdot for covering it up.
