If You Had Invented Siri, You Would've Invented Siri

parislemon:

Well, we all knew this was coming

In a sit down with Forbes’ Eric Savitz, Microsoft Chief Research and Strategy Officer Craig Mundie talks about how Microsoft has actually been doing what Siri offers for the past year with Tellme technology on Windows Phone. He dismisses Siri’s buzz as basically just good marketing and people being “infatuated” with Apple. 

Sadly, the majority of the time a company comes out with something that excites people, a competitor will come out and yell “FIRST!”. When Apple makes the product, it tends to happen every single time. And Microsoft is the worst at this type of “us first” nonsense. They don’t seem to realize that it just makes them look pathetic — or worse, highlights their own irrelevance in the space. 

I’m reminded of a line from the Mark Zuckerberg character in The Social Network:

“If you had invented Facebook, you would’ve invented Facebook.”

Siri once again seems to have inflamed the same passion among third-party developers, who foresee the immense variety of uses the virtual assistant can be put to if only Apple provides an official solution to extend its functionality.

Hyperwarming Climate Could Turn Earth’s Poles Green

An Era of ice that has gripped Earth’s poles for 35 million years could come to an end as extreme global warming really begins to bite. Previously unknown sources of positive feedback - including “hyperwarming” that was last seen on Earth half a billion years ago - may push global temperatures high enough to send Earth into a hothouse state with tropical forests growing close to the poles.

Climate scientists typically limit themselves to the 21st century when predicting how human activity will affect global temperatures. The latest predictions are bolder, though: the first systematic forecasts through to 2300 are beginning to arrive.

They follow four possible futures, including one in which we rapidly cut emissions and another in which we burn fossil fuels into the 22nd century (Climatic Change, DOI: 10.1007/s10584-011-0157-y).

Chris Jones of the UK Met Office in Exeter says that unpublished results suggest the “burn everything” scenario could see atmospheric carbon dioxide levels reach 2000 parts per million - the figure today is 388 ppm. That pulse of CO2 could lead to a global temperature rise of 10 °C.

Temperatures this high were last seen in the Eocene, 34 million years ago, says Paul Pearson of Cardiff University in the UK. Conditions were so different back then that the Canadian High Arctic was populated by plants that are now found in the south-eastern US (Proceedings of the Royal Society B, DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2011.1704).
