What Is Bullshit For $500

IBM decided to build a computer named "Watson" to play Jeopardy against human competition this week. "Surprisingly" the machine crushed the competition
A gigantic computer created by IBM specifically to excel at answers-and-questions left two champs of the TV game show in its silicon dust after a three-day tournament, a feat that experts call a technological breakthrough Watson earned $77,147, versus $24,000 for Ken Jennings and $21,600 for Brad Rutter. Jennings took it in stride writing "I for one welcome our new computer overlords" alongside his correct Final Jeopardy answer.Source
 Really a technological breakthrough?? I mean isn't that what computers are supposed to do, store information that's easily accessible?  A technological breakthrough to me is a computer that can give you head and make a me weird but when I boot up my computer it's never asked me to google something for it or ask me where the best place to watch porn is.
