Animal, vegetable, or mineral?

Funny how things work. Of all the games, toys, and other goodies lavished on the young 'uns for Christmas this year by parents, grandparents, and various other relatives, the biggest hit of all was this silly little item we gave them. It's simply uncanny in how specifically it's able to guess what you're thinking, and even the adults (read: kids at heart) are fascinated by it. Geek that I am, I can't help but think that thirty years ago, the computing power inside this little plastic orb would have filled a very large room and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. If you want to play the game, but don't want to spend the $12.95, go here.

Hope everyone's having a great holiday so far. I'll post another update when we're back home later in the week.

    This was WAY cool! I went to the online version and played 3 times. It lost on "car" (27 questionns), but correctly guessed "tobacco plant" and "cocker Spaniel" in less than 20 questions! Wow! Thanks for the fun site...
