Submission + - Obama-RNN—AI generated political speeches. (medium.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Obama-RNN is an experimental neural network AI system to write political speeches, mimicking president Obamas style and content. The results are astonishing and at time highly entertaining.

Submission + - Chrome Experiments making JavaScript more fun (paritynews.com)

hypnosec writes: It has been three years since Google Creative Labs has been pushing the boundaries of JavaScript and through the use of open web technologies such as Canvas, HTML5, WebGL has been producing some rather graphics, animations and the likes. Chrome Experiments has come up with some rather amazing graphics through JavaScript and people who still believe that Flash is the only way to build great graphics for the web with interactivity; I guess this should be a wake-up call.

Submission + - Galaxy Nexus Is A Stolen, Pirated Product - Apple (muktware.com)

sfcrazy writes: Apple is stooping to a whole new level. The company is evidently scared of competition in the mobile and is using every legal means to 'kill' Android.

The same company which stole UI from Xerox, whose founded shamelessly admitted that they have been shameless about stealing ideas from other companies is putting the Galaxy Nexus phone it the category of 'stolen, pirated, counterfeit, or infringing products.'

My bullies turned out to be right on many things he called me. I was being very stupid by following all the school rules. Aiming for good grades. Those things are worthless. If anything, the bullying I suffered opened my eyes to the world. The article gets it right when it tells the parent to help out their children to understand the world they live in. Punishing bullies would just be real dumb. BTW, D is a passing grade, so I'm sure he was happy to get them.

    All in all, it's a good plan. :)

    I'd park the van closer to the bathroom though. :)


Quarter of Brits Think Churchill Was Myth 3

Just so you don't think Americans are the only people who have no clue when it comes to their history, a recent survey found a fair number of British people believe that Churchill, Charles Dickens, and Mahatma Gandhi were fictional characters. Who made the "real people" list? Over half the people asked thought Sherlock Holmes was real. Many people were surprised to find out that The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was not a documentary.
