My new iMac is fantastic. I have spent so much time in my home office this week that I may need to invest in a mini fridge and a hot plate so I don’t skip any more meals.
When I’m not killing droids in the Star Wars Lego game the speech recognition software is a great feature to play with. I can open and close programs, start my screen saver, switch between applications, etc. I currently have it set up that I simply say the word “Mac” before each command. It defaults to the word “Computer” but it made me feel a little too much like the captain of a starship.
The iMac can tell jokes.
Me: “Mac, tell me a joke.”
iMac: “Knock, knock.”
Me: “Whose there?”
Me: “Tuna who?”
iMac: “Tuna the piano so it sounds better.”
I did not say it could tell funny jokes.
