Probably a bit of stage business concocted to generate publicity.

I think. (bigeyes1)

One should hope so. On the other hand: it isn't really good for the quiz's image.

I doubt they care much about image, they just want viewers. They'd put a baboon on if they thought it would get them another point in the Nielsen ratings.  ;D

Very strange questions you`ve got in the show in America.   :( We definitely have much more sophisticated ones.  :o

Dunno; these shows seem to be full of people who can't get the "How many feet have you got?" question even if you spot them thirty seconds so they can look.  ;D

The questions get much harder on that show, those questions are the first few so that you can easily get to a thousand dollars, so that you can at least leave the show with that much if nothing else.  They make the first couple very easy for that reason. I guess even those questions are too hard for some  ;D

Maybe this belongs in the Halloween thread?  ;D


Michael denies Jackson 5 reunion

Singer Michael Jackson has denied that he is to take part in a Jackson 5 reunion tour.

In a statement, the 50-year-old said he had "no plans to record or tour" with his siblings.

The statement comes a day after elder brother Jermaine said Michael was on board with the project.

Rumours of a reunion have circulated for years with Jermaine suggesting similar things before, in 2003 and again last year.

"My brothers and sisters have my full love and support, and we've certainly shared many great experiences, but at this time I have no plans to record or tour with them," he said.

"I am now in the studio developing new and exciting projects that I look forward to sharing with my fans in concert soon," he added.

Jermaine Jackson told the Australian Associated Press on Wednesday that the singing family was working on the music and logistics for a tour next year.

"It is going to be more like a family affair - Janet's going to open and, of course, the original Jackson 5 ... Michael, Randy and the whole family... we're in the studio, we're planning on being out there next year," he said.

The last time the original members performed together was at a concert in 2001 to celebrate Michael Jackson's 30 years in music.

The group last toured in 1984 by which time Michael Jackson was a huge star in his own right.

I heard this on the radio this morning and thought it was pretty funny!


Topic: Mobile Phones
[size=18]iPhone Google Voice Search Stumped by British Accent[/size]


Posted on Thu, 20 Nov 2008 13:01:38 GMT | by Shane McGlaun

Google's new voice recognition search engine for the iPhone has hit a glitch - it is stumped by British accents.

The application developed in the U.S cannot recognise regional twangs.

Users say the technology mistook the word 'iPhone' for 'sex,' 'Einstein' and even 'kitchen sink'.

The Google Mobile App is designed to work just like the traditional search engine. Rather than typing a query on the iPhone, users speak their search term and then view the results on the screen.

Saying the word pizza should spring up a selection of local pizza restaurants and invite you to call them with a single click of the phone.

And uttering 'Barack Obama' should bring you all the latest Google results about the new U.S. president.

But one user with a Kentish accent was clearly unhappy with his experience.

When Roger Ellinson, 26, from Maidstone asked for her nearest pizza take away, it delivered 'something about volcanoes.'

Asked about his nearest pub, the screen flashed up 'some kind of weird dating website.'

'I'll have to try to put on my best American accent to get it to work,' he concluded.

Similar problems are reported on the application's website, AFP said.

"Awesome job google," one commenter wrote. "Only problem is every time I say the word 'fish' it registers as 'sex'."

Accents from different parts of Britain brought back different results after voice-searching for 'iPhone', the Daily Telegraph reported.

A search by a Yorkshireman brought back results for "bonfire", a Kent accent brought back "my sister", and a Surrey accent returned "MySpace".

Welsh accents fared the worst, returning "gorillas" and "kitchen sink", while a Scotsman was given results for "sex".

Online forums have shown a dramatic trans-Atlantic divide in response, with US users waxing lyrical about the service but British users stumped.

A user from Lincolnshire said his Irish lilt was a drawback.

'Irish obviously isn't the best accent to have. I tried about 20 different 2-4 word phrases and not one came out right,' he wrote.

But a spokesman for Google said the tool is not designed for UK accents.

He said: 'The product is for U.S. English. You're welcome to use it, but we can't guarantee it'll work with British accents.'

This is about the most neutral English accent you can have!

How about this? Italian competetion. Free kick. Three players in front of the goalkeeper are distracting him by dropping their shorts. And it's a goal of course!
