Game over, man. Computers are now smarter than us humans.

Watching the Microsoft keynote and a woman demos image interpretation software. She brings up a picture of the Mona Lisa, and the software says that it looks like Leonardo da Vinci's reflection in the mirror:

https://images.scribblelive.com/2016/3/30/74362a4a-fbf9-49ff-bb7c-ba2c39ba6a2b.jpg

She dismisses it as an error because the software was not trained on classic paintings...

Woosh! What she's missing is that the software perfectly recognized the masterpiece, but then told a joke based on a theory that Mona Lisa is da Vinci's own self-portrait (without the beard) that he may have created using his own reflection in a mirror.

I'm getting fed up with +Verizon FiOS 's "FiOS not available in your area, how about some DirectTV instead?" line.  They were supposed to wire 100% of NYC residential areas by 2014 in exchange for franchise rights.  So how come this resident keeps getting the same bullshit brush-off since 2010?
Want FiOS and Can't Get It? Let us know.

It will be more important when the Qi/Powermat standards are updated to charge more quickly. As it stands right now, you'd have to spend hours at a Starbucks to get a full charge via Powermat.

One trillion dollars for a plane that doesn't do the thing it's supposed to? Sure thing! But let's keep blaming ACA, foreign aid, and public education spending on the current national deficit and debt.


schwit1 sends this report from the War Is Boring column: A test pilot has some very, very bad news about the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. The pricey new stealth jet can't turn or climb fast enough to hit an enemy plane during a dogfight or to dodge the enemy's own gunfire, the pilot reported following...

Very spacious place with high ceilings and great view of the bay. Indoors and outdoors seating areas - great for any season or weather. Delicious food, excellent selection, generous portions, and the best Turkish coffee I've had in a very long time. Very friendly staff, and fast service. A little on the expensive side, but worth every penny. This is one of my family's most favorite spots for a weekend breakfast.

One of the best Hibachi steakhouses in Brooklyn. Always fresh ingredients, great performances by chefs. Usually busy, so call ahead.
