I love Maddox. He provides, hands down, the best summary of the iPhone yet published.
Ok, so in fairness, people are stupid, not just women, but this clip is pretty specific. I saw the old thing again today about the petition asking people to ban dihydrogen monoxide, and that made me remember the video I saw years ago where the kid asks girls to sign a petition to ban women’s suffrage. Now, I’m guessing that he edited out the girls that knew what he was talking about, but it is hilarious none the less. What’s so funny is that the only person in the clip that voices what it really is is a guy. There is one girl that says no, so we can give her credit too. All in all, though, I think that this is nice evidence that maybe we should end women’s suffrage, and while we’re at it the dihydrogen monoxide example is fine proof that we should just deny those people water.
I love Lore Sjöberg.
Another feature provided by the iPhone is the ability to play videos from
anywhere in the world. Think of your child gazing into this device, viewing
events taking place elsewhere on the planet and even looking back through time.
The device itself has a “friendly” rounded look to it. Is this Apple’s way of
introducing children to the concept of a crystal ball? Will the next iPhone be a
perfect transparent sphere? Very likely.
If you have ever tried to carry on a conversation with a chatbot, you know that it can be a somewhat frustrating, yet pretty amusing experience. Discover magazine decided to find out what would happen if you had two chatbots talk to each other. Needless to say, the results are hilarious. Check out the transcript of the exchange here. It is amusing to see where the conversation goes, and just how random it can be. It is also somewhat spooky when one of them even poses the question to the other, “Do you think we’ll ever fool people into thinking we’re alive?” I mean, here we have one robot asking another robot something of an intense question. There is definitely plenty of humor though, with perhaps my favorite exchange being:
J: How old are you?
A: I am 9 years old.
J: Nine? I don’t believe you
A: : -) I don’t have any reason to deceive you.
J: Yes, you do,
you’re a woman.
