Interesting, but I was disappointed. He failed to get Earl Scruggs even after the maximum number of questions, though I found him on the list--so I wasn't the first guy to use him. I tried Blaine, but he guessed Copperfield. So I picked something more iconic--and he nailed Bruce Lee in 13 questions.

I'll give it a few more tries. It's fun.

I tried Shoeless Joe Jackson and he guessed Babe Ruth. Then I tried Roger Waters and he guessed Paul McCartney. Both close I suppose, but it bviously goes with the most iconic.

The nice thing is that he builds the database from all the wrong mistakes.

Interesting. Do you know the guy?

I played around with it a little while longer, choosing people like Britney Spears to see how quickly he gets the answer. Generally, he needs at least 12 questions. It took him all 20 to get Uri Geller--who I picked because he was the only entertainer from Israel I know Smile. Maybe he could have guessed Uri with the usual 12 or 13.

Cool stuff. I liked it.

I tried several names, and it blanked on all of them. Maybe it will get better.

What names did you try? I mean, I know I could intentionally stump the machine, but what would be the point of that? I think I'll go back and see if he can guess someone like...say...Abie Nathan.

Seems like this is very strong on israeli celebrities.
I got this mail from an Israeli friend and this seem to circulate there for quite a while now. It even manages to guess the less known israeli singer names.

He didn't get...
Harry Houdini, David Copperfield, or Meat Loaf.

He DID, however, guess correctly when I was thinking of "my clone."

Kinda cool. Played it 3 times, he didn't get it twice - Eddie Irvine (fail) Bono (hit) Ross O'Carroll Kelly (fail)
