Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend.
Here's a look of some interesting tech stories you might have missed ...
California is worried robots will put a growing number of people out of work in the coming years.
So worried, in fact, that some leaders there are looking at a robot tax, according to The Associated Press.
One example cited is the Knightscope K5 security robot that's being used in places such as shopping malls and office buildings, potentially leading some security guards to lose their jobs.
AP says it's too early to tell right now if the tax proposal will become law.
Apple in Austin
Apple CEO Tim Cook says he wants the company to continue to grow in Austin.
In an exclusive interview with the American-Statesman, Cook said Apple started out in Austin in 1992 with 100 workers. Today, that number has risen to about 6,000.
Customer support, online sales, retail sales, Maps, finance and engineering are some of the departments represented here.
"We’re a people business, we’re not a brick and mortar kind of business," Cook said. "We spend a lot of money on facilities, and so forth, but at the end of the day, we are about people. The people in Austin are great. We’re looking at more things and what more things could be here. And of course the present teams here will continue to grow."
Tortillas. We love them. A lot.

As you might expect, it didn't work too well ... but, boy, it sure tastes great dipped in queso.
