Robots will make men obsolete.

Loved the layered meanings of the headline... 'chip' labor... very clever! :) Just one question someone may be able to answer though - I thought that Japan usually used UK spelling for English, rather than US spelling? Am I wrong, is it just whatever the writer feels like or... what?

In everyday use in Japan, it's whatever the writer is comfortable with I'm guessing, which is Engrish in a lot of cases :P

But in journalism, I think the majority of the international press sticks with US spelling.

What will the robots do if you don't tip enough? most countries dont tip, if you paid your staff enough there wouldn't be the need for waiter/waitresses to grovel for change.

Soon, we'll be seeing a whole bunch of 回転中華 chain restaurants in the Tokyo metro area.
