I’ve been called a Luddite on more than one occasion. Having a healthy fear of technology is a good thing in my book. So you might understand why the fact that a computer whooping the asses of two of the biggest Jeopardy champions might just cause me to freak out a bit. Check out part of the show here.
In related news, a new version of Monopoly was revealed at the New York Toy Fair this past week. It looks like the computers have taken over our boardgames too. I haven’t been able to keep up with video game technology since the Super Nintendo system was new, now I have to relearn Monopoly? Why make this too complicated for me too?
It’s elementary, my dear Watson.
