Next time POTUS needs to talk space with China, it’ll be a straightforward process: it turns out Washington and Beijing now have an emergency “space hotline” to ensure conflicts don’t arise.
Yesterday, President Obama made history by having a conversation via telepresence robot in the White House to mark the 25th anniversary of the Americans Disabilities Act. But it wasn’t the first time Obama has met with the artificially intelligent.
Did it take this long to verify him? Is he posting from his BlackBerry? I have SO MANY QUESTIONS.
Maybe Tim Cook lost his address? Of all the public figures sporting shiny new Apple Watches this week, the leader of the free world is not one of them. Our president is a Fitbit guy. Fitbit Surge, to be exact.
