Microsoft Envisions Wasteless Future With Translating Eyeglasses

Filed under: Tech Talk

With everyone talking about Siri, robotic take-over, iThis and iThat, it's hard not to wonder where the future will take us.

And while none of us can ever really know for sure until it happens, we definitely know what Microsoft is dreaming up.

They envision a world full of technological productivity. No need for a lot of paper, more efficient computing, and eyeglasses that translate the foreign voices around you!

It's futuristic fashion, and we love it.

Watch this inventive little film above and enjoy!

New Facebook Comment Editing Feature Causing Annoyance At First

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebook

Facebook Changes Commenting System

If you've been on Facebook recently, and let's be honest, you have, you'll notice a small change if you've tried to comment on something.

That change is this: The "comment" button is gone!

We don't mean the first one, but the one you click to submit the comment! Instead, all you have to do is hit enter!

While this could be seen as an annoyance at first, they've done this because they've added a very handy comment editing feature. So no longer will you misspell something or immediately regret sounding stupid about something and have to delete the entire thing!

You can just click the X like you were going to delete the comment, but now you have the option to edit or delete completely!

Where's the annoyance in that, you say? The annoyance comes in the idea of hitting enter to post the comment, because that used to be for performing paragraph breaks. So until people get used to it, you'll be seeing a lot of accidental postings going on, but at least they can go back in and edit now!

To do a paragraph break, you just have to press Shift + Enter, like in a lot of instant-messaging programs.

We think everyone will get used to it easily, especially for the chance to edit!

How do U feel about this new change??

No More Stealing Pink Fifties! Computers Take Over Monopoly!

Filed under: Tech Talk

You know, making the world's smartest humans look like simpletons on national television is one thing, computers….but now you are screwing with an American pass-time!

We don't like this at all!

Introducing Monopoly Live, the newest edition of America's favorite way to waste 13 hours of their lives. The rules are the same as they always were, but in this new age, people apparently shouldn't be bothered to do things like roll dice or count change. Heavens no! That's why Hasbro unveiled a new technology - a new computer - that will do all the work for you!

See that tower in the middle of the board there? That wonder stick keeps track of all your money, rolls the dice for you and it even knows where your doggie lands on the board. No more Chance or Community cards, everything is done by that Shake Weight magic cylinder. With a wave of one hand, you can buy Park Place and with a wave of the other, you can say goodbye to cheating your Grandma out of all the Railroads. This super computer will have none of those shenanigans.

Check out the video (above) to see Monopoly Live plot its world domination in action.

Too much. We're really not okay with this.

How about U?

Watson On Jeopardy: "Pathetic Humans!" Followed By Evil Laughter

Filed under: TV NewsTech Talk

Asimo Happy To Hear That World Domination Has Started

And so it begins.

Last night's showdown between the computer Watson and two returning human champions on Jeopardy turned brutal as the machine crushed its opponents!

We suppose it was embarrassed by its tie on the first night! Machines can be embarrassed, right?!

Team Human, what happened??

Well, here's what happened:

"Veteran human champs Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter scored only five correct responses between them during the Double Jeopardy! round. They ended this first game of a two-game match, which began on Monday's broadcast, with a mere $2,400 and $5,400 respectively. Watson emerged from the Final Jeopardy! round with whopping $35,734."

We read that like 4 or 5 times, but all we could gather from it was we need to prepare pretty fast for our new machine overlords.

LOLz!

Ken and Brad, it's okay bbs! We only relied on you to keep the biggest power struggle know to man in balance!

In all seriousness, good try guys!

The second game between the three will air tonight!

Thoughts??

Kathie Lee Gifford Has Never Turned On A Computer

Filed under: TV NewsTech Talk

kathie-lee-gifford-technology-computer.jpg

Forget if she is a Mac or a PC - Kathie Lee Gifford is computer illiterate.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, The Today Show host revealed that she has NEVER turned on a computer and will probably never learn how as she believe in more social interaction than social networking. She explained:

“Technical stuff does not come very easy to me. I prefer people over machines. Plus, I watch my friends and my associates and everybody freaks out when their technology falls apart. So, I’ve got the same little address book I’ve had forever. It never lets me down!”

Whatever works for you, Kathie. You're missing out though! There's a lot of wondrous things going on in cyber land!

Have you seen the work of Antione Dodsen?!
