    I respectfully disagree with Andrew on the whole Watson issue. Bear in mind that Watson got a text message when the question was revealed. Those 7 servers running could parse that sentence in no time. I’d like to see Watson work that quickly if it had to read/listen to the clues in real time with camera/microphone. THAT would be really impressive.
