Robo Friends Have Arrived

Eat your cartoon heart out George Jetson. In this edition of SourceFed, host Trisha Hershberger tells us that the world’s first robot assistant has arrived.

Melting water from the last Ice Age entombed her in the cave, creating the proper environment for her preservation. Scientists say her pristine remains were surrounded by remnants of her past and her genetic footprint is expected to shed light on our forefathers. SourceFed’s Joe Bereta reports on the discovery.

 

Largest Lawsuit Ever

It used to be that lawsuits reaching six figures would drop your jaw. And those in the seven-figure range were absolutely shocking.

In this edition of SourceFed, Lee Newton and Elliott Morgan speculate on what the image is.
