Ho-hum swimming robot

Man, you can't swing a data-obsessed scientist anymore without hitting a data-gathering robot of some kind.{mosimage}
 
A "robot" named Spray is "swimming" from Greenland to Spain, sending daily e-mail updates to its fleshen masters, who can adjust its course via the things GPS receiver. Ooh, a data-gathering robot with a GPS receiver. How creative.
 
Okay yeah, it's cool that this robot will be gathering data on salinity, temperature and cheapest viagra anywhere other things to keep tabs on viagra in spain the ocean's climate, but it's a little creepy that the scientists in charge want to order propica deploy a ton more by 2011 and call them robotic underwater sentinels.
