Windows Vista Voice Recognition, The Psychopath

From a recent Microsoft Vista press conference in which the built-in Speech Recognition software was demonstrated.

“Computer. Computer. Type ‘Dear Mom. Oh, what a lovely tea party.’”

“DEAD AUNT. MURDER DEATH KILL. MURDER DEATH KILL. MURDER DEATH KILL…”

As a post script, if Pangloss were right and this were the best of all possible worlds, CNBC correspondent Jim Goldman would have had his fingers cut off with a cigar cutter the second he put air quotes around ‘recognition’. What exactly is it about CNBC that attracts such smug, insufferable cunts?

    Good thing it was just ambient noise that caused the mafunction. Because you know no one has ambient noise in their office or home. I work in total silence at all times.

    Just more proof that Microsoft is evil.

    And word up to christy. I do most of my computing in a silent, airtight clean room. Also I’m too lazy to type.

    So brassy. I love her.
