    "Dear aunt, let's set so double the killer delete select all."

    Watch this hilarious demonstration of Windows Vista's Voice Recognition.

    The way I see this is that it may become the next "All your base are belong to us" if that line becomes popular enough

    It's a video about a showoff speech-recognition thing that failed miserably, later Microsoft said it was because of surrounding sound from the public...

    /Too lazy to search for the video

    Yah right...failure due to background noise. Bullshit. Just like when they tried to show off USB plug and play shit I think with Win98 or something and when they jacked in the scanner it took the entire OS down with the BSOD and Gates looked somewhere between shocked and pissed to all hell.

    Actually, the voice recognition failed because the gain was way too high, just like any voice recognition current on the market would fail for the same reason.

    No biggie. It's work-in-progress software, people are far too hard on Microsoft.
