I know this is fake....but at least try to get the details right. 1TFLOP isn't that impressive anymore. Heck, anyone who owns an ATI 4850 has a 1TFLOP supercomputer.

Hey, that's sort of part of the joke. The computer is 100 times faster than Deep Blue, but still only mediocre by today's standards.

I love these articles, keep making them please. If people can't see the humor in a computer participating in curling, that's their own fault. Keep up the good work Tom's!

Ha.

512 viewers... sounds about right.
My parents apparantly almost went together as a professional team, no idea why they didn't.

Have you ever actually curled? It's a dull sport.

Have you ever actually watched professional curling? It's the cure for insomia.

I'm one of them. About ~12 years ago or so I feel in love with curling during the winter olympics.
