THIS IS ONE of those stories that make me want to say "I'm sorry" to gay people for the nonsense they endure from some heterosexuals who give the rest of us straight people a bad name. So please,

Spent the past 2 hours integrating w/ my google device... So far Im pleased. Pleased enough to give it more access to my information and accounts then I ever trusted apple with. Google Now looks to be something special. I'll have to keep playing with it and write what I think as it predicts what info I may want (traffic, weather, cal events are most likely but Im open for surprises that it derives from my search and gmail history)

Im a bit sad that I cant move kindle purchases into play books b/c play books has integrated tts and I have to hack the android to make tts work for kindle. The most annoying/tempting part is play has every book I ever purchased on kindle available. So do I just buy them all again? I find that hard to swallow but text to speech IS that important to me.

Voice search is great, though I long for a virtual assistant. Apparently they are downloadable but I dont want to bother yet. I wont pay for one but some of the free ones have great reviews from the likes of CNET etc.. so reputable enough. Maybe next week if I really feel the need to dictate text messages and the like.

The navigation tool is awesome and will make me a safer driver. Its not just gmap of iphone style or imap of the new iphone style, its actually a built in gps style system (map is actually a separate app) that gives voice directions, reroutes on the fly, routes around traffic and so far has gotten me where Im going even when I decide to go a different route then its recommending. I was actually happy w/ iMap by the end of my iphone experience but this is just 2 steps beyond that. Oh and it integrates nicely w/ music while it tells you where you need to go.

The device itself (nexus 4) is phenomenal speed, interface and clarity wise. Crushes my iphone (I had a non-retina) experience but it could just be a industry standard these days. Battery is holding up pretty well but it'll be a charge daily device if Im using it hard like I am today.

Yay nexus 4.

And here we go: http://venturebeat.com/2011/08/17/ibm-cognitive-computing-chips/ The ghost in this machine will be non-deterministic as its complexity increases and the fuzzy state changes with experience. Once its begun it will literally be 'alive' in its own way.
IBM has been shipping computers for more than 65 years, and it is finally on the verge of creating a true electronic brain. Big Blue is announcing today that it, along with four universities and the D...
