If you just tie together a few of Google's datum (search history, Chrome
history, Calendar, contacts, G+, and Tasks) you could pretty much predict
what I was seeking when I came down to the hardware store. That's where all
of this is quickly going - tell me what I want before I ask for it, and
sprinkle in a few relevant commercials (hey, instead of going to all of
that trouble to research jailbreaking my phone, here's an app they're
showing that will do it for just $9.99 - well worth all of the time and
effort I'm saving.., or so it goes in theory). This kind of AI isn't all
that difficult, compared to emulating a human mind.
