    On AIM, there is an automated user "smarterchild" that you can communicate with. Additionally, Smarterchild has a library of facts and data available for your access.

    Today I was just typing in random Phrases, and Put in "Bill Gates"

    SM Replied

    I know about Bill Gates. I don't like Bill Gates

    I just thought it was interesting. BTW SmarterChild Likes Steve Jobs, Star Trek, and Star Wars.

    Try it and see what other interesting things it says about other famous people and TV Shows.

    It probably gets its results from search engines, somewhat like Google Definitions (searching for "Bill Gates is ..."). But sounds funny, nonetheless. Can't try it out though - I don't have AOL.

    In Word 6.0 and 97 for Windows, if you typed in "I'd like to see Bill Gates dead" and hit Shift + F7 to bring up the Thesaurus, the first entry was: "I'll drink to that."

    Apparently not everyone at Microsoft's all that fond of the man either. :)

    Yeah. Although I'm not sure who runs SmarterChild, I don't think it is AOL itself. But what it does is it takes a collective of everything people have said to it over all of its conversations. Like, if I said "Do you know John Doe?", he would say "No," until I tell him about who John Doe is. This means that someone or some people talked to SmarterChild about Bill Gates, and said negative things.

    P.S. It used to (and maybe still does) say the same thing about the word "n*gger", and I think some other racial slurs. Just try different things out.

    if it gets it's results from Google... you should ask it about 'who's a bastard' or 'biggest group of bastards' or just 'bastards'. it might give you 'SCO' as the answer. :eek:

    well, at least Google thinks so. LOL. :D

    I have had him on my hotmail account before. If you type in games etc (if this is the same thing) you can play games with it. You can also find out sport scores and everything. Its pretty neat. I have had a lot of fun with that thing.
