Actually, the kid was smart enough to figure out the unlocking thing and then ask Siri for help. I'm just surprised that dialing 999 (or 911) is beyond him.
He probably saw his mom unlock the phone and use Siri many times before. However, being as he is only 4 years old he might not have known to call 999, or which number on the keypad was 9 when it came up. Some 4 year olds can read the numbers 0-9 but not all. Stringing together the right 3-digit sequence of numbers is not a small task at that age.
Yep, you guessed it. I don't have social media either.
I have been told repeatedly by a large number of people that I am the only person on earth who is not on facebook. Surely by the power of numbers they are right and you are wrong, hence you must be on facebook. Sorry to break it to you. You might want to make sure your account is under control before you travel next time.
Clarke did very little writing on robot brains.
Um, I'll have to assume that you weren't around for April, 1968, when the leading AI in popular culture for a long, long, time was introduced in a Kubrick and Clarke screenplay and what probably should have been attributed as a Clarke and Kubrick novel. And a key element of that screenplay was a priority conflict in the AI.
My idea of roughing it turning the air conditioner too low.
