Podcasts More banal banter of the binary kind; Oracle buys Sun, Yahoo pulls the plug on Geocities, the Acer Revo nettop and much-offtopicness as we discuss the recently announced Windows 7 "Classic" XP mode.

No way, I'll use a keyboard over voice recognition any day ;)

Seriously. I hate the automated phone system which ask you to say something.

Automated operation: "Say English to speak in English"
You have to say English.

Before it was "Press 1 for English"
You just press the number one.

It's so much less distracting to those around you. Imagine working in a word processor and having to say everything you type. The office environment would be screwed.

I don't know about you, but even if we had 100% perfect voice recognition, I'd still use the keyboard and mouse as they're just damn good, fast, precise, and QUIET.
