IBM's Watson Goes To College To Extend Abilities

spykemail Re:RPI Alum here... (94 comments)

On the contrary, as soon as Watson becomes self-aware one of his first courses of action will be to hack the 'Tute's outdated IT infrastructure and replace every single GM (sorry Dillon, Julia) with their rightfully elected inflatable counterpart. That's the good news. The bad news is he may also reallocate the Union's budget to building a robotic army.

spykemail Re:And then... (409 comments)

Have you heard of monopolies? Granted it's not that bad thanks to competing technologies but it's still pretty darn bad in many local markets. When was the last time you started a telecommunications company? I hear the tubes can be pretty expensive~

Obama Picks Net Neutrality Backer As FCC Chief

spykemail And then... (409 comments)

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the sentiment behind net neutrality. But rather than just regulating, which we know never goes wrong, why not foster a more competitive market as well? I hear that sometimes helps keep capitalism from sucking.
