I have the old Hal Assistant on my computer, you can talk to it and it talks back. If you talk to it enough it learns what you like to talk about and pretty much says what you've said it it. But it's cool in its own way.

Don't think I'll fork out $500 for this gadget, it doesn't do enough, like wash my car or put food in the microwave for me. Now if it would feed my cats... Kids would like it, though.

The acceptance of authority does not lead to intelligence.
A mind untouched by thought...the end of knowledge.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

I was sure the video would have ended with the little girl going to sleep and jibo turning to the camera and have its white eye turn red.

Really, I don't understand anymore when it's a real video from a real company and when it's a viral campaign for a new movie. They're too close.

Anyway, my answer is no. Too creepy.

It is kind of cute, but also kind of creepy. I think I would pass.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
