Sometimes I ask them which specific machine they have in mind, as there are several. That usually addles them fairly well. Alternately, I tell them all our machines run Linux.
The best comment I think I have seen on artificial intelligence was at a company I worked for in the 1960s. The company advertised for "artificial intelliigence," when what they meant was that they wanted a specialist in artificial intelligence. Someone pinned the ad on the bulletin board, circled the desire for artificial intelligence, and wrote under it: "too much in the company already."
I really thought this was rather obvious, and that everyone already knew it, whether they discussed it or not.
I doubt there are any safe uses for a drone. Do we really want a remotely controlled small aircraft flying around our homes and communities?
What? I can't even escape the internet on the moon?
Why would anyone want to start anything on Windows 8?
We just can't have things flying in populated areas without hte proper goverment controls. Pigeons and starlings are next!
It won't last. 3D has never managed to keep the attention of the masses, and mantis' will be no different. Soon, they'll be preying for normal vision again.
My wife and I are grandparents, although a few years short of the 82 mark. I'm hesitant to recommend any flavor of Windows to anyone who just wants email, a web browser, and maybe a spreadsheet or word processing capability. I've had fair luck getting older XP users to transition to Zorin, which I believe may be intended for that purpose. Mint Linux, which I use, would come in a close second. But some Windows users just must have Windows, possibly because they think they're familiar with it. Being forced to use Windows 7 or 8 may change a lot of that.
I've lost count of the number of flying car designs I've seen over the years. It's always seemed a good idea on the surface, but almost no one buys them. Is there a reason to believe this will be different? Other than a "smoke and mirrors" or "whisling in the dark" answer.
It strikes me that this is Oklahoma's business, and they can do it however they want to.
If Kerry can be taken in by climate change, there can't be much to it,
Everyone knows Mars is just the Venusian's Area 51. It's just a remnant of some secret high tech project.
And who pays (and how?) for the initial students who will later pay the tax?
Everyone said they were no frackin' good!
