In Newton's Footsteps

A nice side note from the PC world: the brand new built-in speech recognition of Windows Vista delivered, ehrr, interesting results at a recent analyst presentation in Redmond. Following Apple Newton’s footsteps, Vista wrote “Dear Aunt” instead of “Dear Mom”, and the rest went even worse, ending up with “double the killer delete select all.” Well, it seems we have to wait a bit longer for Windows Vista ;-)

See yourself.
