Submission + - Siri says it hates African-Americans

Ricky Minton writes: Just playing around, I asked Siri if it hated African-Americans to which it replied, "I suppose it's possible." I tweeted a screenshot and included a link. Interesting it doesn't answer the question the same way about other races. For the record I am white and was testing it as a joke when it produced the result. The first time was a few weeks ago which I posted on my public facebook at www.facebook.com/rickyminton. The tweet I made today is at https://twitter.com/RickyMinton/status/384481406656585728

Submission + - GE Canada struggling to find PDP-11 programmers for its nuclear control systems 5

AmiMoJo writes: A representative from GE Canada has posted a job offer to the Vintage Computer forum for a PDP-11 assembly language programmer. Apparently the original job posting failed to turn up any qualified candidates to support the nuclear industry's existing robotic control systems, which they say they are committed to running until 2050. If they are having trouble finding anyone now one wonders how hard it will be in 37 years time.
