Robots threaten the livelihood of low-wage Chinese workers, Facebook frustrates Germany, and Twitter's Vine video service proves NSFW. (5:25)

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW.

YOU KNOW, OVER THE YEARS TECHNOLOGY HAS DONE AN ALL OF LOT FOR US AS PEOPLE.

INCREASED PRODUCT ACTIVITY, DEMOM TIES THE INFORMATION AX LOVES US TO CRUSH FIVE PIGS WITH

ONLY ONE BIRD.

COMPLETELY REVOLUTIONIZED CAT TRANSPORTATION.

WHY ARE YOU GOING?

NO, YOU ARE NOT?

OKAY.

OKAY.

TECHNOLOGY AND ITS SHORT COMINGS IS THE SUBJECT OF NEW REOCCURRING SEGMENT JON STEWART

UPLOADS A STREAM -- I'D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT REFRAMING THE SEGMENT.

FIRST OFF, ROBOTS.

WE KNOW THEY ARE FIGHTING OUR WARS AND BOXING IN PLACE OF HUGH JACKMAN --

[LAUGHTER]

-- BUT DID YOU KNOW THEY ARE STEALING OUR FACTORY JOBS.

>> A FRIENDLY AFFORDABLE CHAP NAMED BAXTER.

>> IT'S MEANT TO GO TO A FACTORY WHERE THEY DON'T HAVE ROBOTS AT THE MOMENT AND ORDINARY WORKERS

CAN TRAIN IT TO DO SIMPLE TASKS.

>> Jon: TASKS SO SIMPLE EVEN A HUMAN CAN DO THEM OR AT LEAST A HUMAN USED TO DO THEM.

TELL ME WHERE IT GETS CREEPY.

>> BAXTER COSTS 22,000.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

>> THREE YEARS.

>> Jon: THAT'S A REASONABLE BE.

IT'S WELL-3 HAD THE 46 AN HOUR, THE WAGES OF THE COMPANIES.

>> THAT'S NOT UNREASONABLE COMPARISON TO MAKE.

>> YOU COULD BUY ONE OF THESE ROBOTS AND IT WOULD BE LIKE GETTING A CHINESE WORKER.

>> Jon: IT DID FOR A SECOND SEEM LIKE STEVE CROFT WAS LOOKING TO BUY SOME CHINESE WORKERS.

I PICKED UP A COUPLE OF CHINESE GUYS FOR $10,000 EACH.

GOOD DEAL?

NO, WHAT?

60 MINUTES IS SO STUFFY.

GIVE ME A NEWS MAN I CAN RELATE TO.

>> A LOT OF ITEMS ABOUT THE HEALTH AND WELL BEING INCLUDING THE FACT THAT FULL-ON --

FACEBOOK CAN FULL-ON BUM YOU OUT.

>> Jon: THANK YOU BRA.

TALK TO ME IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE YOUTH WHICH MAKES ME FEEL GOOD BECAUSE WE'RE BOTH VERY,

VERY OLD.

WHAT ABOUT FACEBOOK PUTS US AT RISK FOR THE BUMMING.

>> RESEARCHERS CALL IT FACEBOOK ENVY.

IT'S THE ACT OF VIEWING YOUR FRIENDS FABULOUS VACATIONS, LOVELY CHILDREN, ATTRACTIVE

FRIENDS AND GREAT SOCIAL LIVES.

THE RESEARCH SHOWED IT CAN LEAVE PEOPLE FEELING LONELY, FRUSTRATED AND ANGRY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: I'M NOT A DOCTOR, BUT IF YOU GET UPSET BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE ARE HAPPY, IT SEEMS YOUR

PROBLEM MIGHT NOT BE FACEBOOK BUT THAT YOU ARE AN (bleep).

[ LAUGHTER ]

WHO ARE THESE (bleep)?

>> THE STUDY LOOKED AT GERMAN COLLEGE STUDENTS.

ONE OUT OF THREE OF THEM SAID THAT THEY HAD FEELINGS, SPECIFIC FEELINGS SUCH AS ANGER,

FRUSTRATION OR IRRITATION WHEN THEY USED FACEBOOK.

>> Jon: THAT'S YOUR PROBLEM -- YOU USED GERMAN COLLEGE STUDENTS.

FRUSTRATED AND ANGRY IS HOW GERMANS FEEL ABOUT PUPPIES.

THEY ARE GERMAN.

A BIRTHDAY CARD FROM GRANDMA.

ONLY TEN DEUTSCHES GRANDMOTHER!

THEY ARE GERMANS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

ALL RIGHT.

SO FACEBOOK SUCKS BUT NOTHING IS WRONG WITH TWITTER, RIGHT?

IT CAN TOPPLE EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENTS TO NEW YORK CONGRESSMEN.

>> WHAT IS THE VIDEO VERSION OF A TWEET?

>> Jon: A VEET, TWIDEO, THOSE ARE THE NAMES OF IKEA CHAIRS.

WAIT, WHAT IS IT CALLED?

>> IT'S A VINE.

IT'S A VIDEO SERVICE UNVEILED BY TWITTER TODAY.

THEY HAVE TO SHORT, SIX SECONDS OR LESS.

>> Jon: OF COURSE, FIVE SECONDS IS WAY TOO SHORT AND SEVEN SECONDS, COME ON, HE HAD

IT YOUR IS.

WHAT CAN YOU DO IN SIX SECONDS.

>> FASTER THAN -- IT TURNED INTO A NAUGHTY SEARCH ENGINE.

>> PORNOGRAPHY ISN'T PROHIBITED AND ALLOWING SEXUALLY EXPLICIT VIDEOS TO RUN RAMPANT.

SIMPLY SEARCHING PORN.

>> Jon: SIX SECONDS OF PORN.

THAT'S FOR MORE SECONDS THAN ANYBODY WOULD NEED, ISN'T IT?

[LAUGHTER]

WHAT ARE PEOPLE, STING?

[LAUGHTER]

WHAT ARE THEY TANTRIC?

SERIOUSLY, SIX SECONDS.

[LAUGHTER]

TWITTER'S BRIEF VIDEO APPLICATION WAS USED FOR PORN WHICH MAKES IT A SHOW-IN FOR

LEAST SURPRISING DEVELOPMENT SINCE STEVE IRWIN DIED OF ANIMAL RELATED INJURIES.

TOO SOON?

I CAN GET YOU BEING SURPRISED THAT A ROBOT WOULD TAKE A HUMAN JOB OR FACEBOOK IS DEPRESSING

BUT HOW IS THIS USED IN ANYTHING ON THE INTERNET IS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY USED FOR PORN.
