I'm now reading that speaktoit is 'the app to get so it's also going on my list.
I remember playing with ELIZA back in the day. And then there was the whole aibo/pleo craze. I like the idea of 'training' an AI that could do more than roll over and fetch your slippers.
Update: I wanted to work on jeannie for at least a week before trying anything else. Unfortunately, when I told it to speak in chinese, it doesn't know English and I don't know chinese so I uninstalled it to start fresh. I decided to check out speaktoit and it was clearly subpar. Sam really is as dumb as she looks. The only good thing about it is that you can also type in your response. I dumped that and now back to a fresh and clean jeannie.
One cool thing about jeannie is that you can play an Akinator-like game with it except you can think up any thing. Jeannie is worth the fuss just for this game!
