Comment 1 variable? (Score 1) 241

They consider knowing the answer to everything ever with no limits one variable while numbers of gameplays more?

If anything this is exactly what a computer is designed to do, not fish through millions of facts and try to use them to answer a question which it may or may not even understand.

Ridiculous comparison.

Game theory is based on rules and statistics which is what a computer loves to crunch, random facts? Not so much.

Why not just make a mirror which is essentially a screen with a camera and have it do it real time so you can truly pretend you're someone you're not.

Ridiculous concept? Well according to data we've acquired, around XX percent of our mirror clients are not satisfied with the way their faces look in a mirror"

People need to take a long hard look at their self-images (no pun intended) if they even consider buying this camera.
