Thaught this might interest anyone who uses MSN Messenger. This was sent to me by one of the MS Newsletters that I receive. It's about a new service called Encarta Instant Answers:
Friendly Encarta Bot
Ever wanted to know, "How old would Einstein be if he was still alive?" then the Encarta Chat Bot for MSN Messenger should be on your contact list! Not only can it answer those vexing questions, but it has answers for some of the more amusing questions such as "What is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything?"
To get Encarta Instant Answers follow the following steps: 1 - Open MSN Messenger and sign in 2 - Add Encarta as a contact: [email protected] 3 - Double click Encarta from your Contact List 4 - Ask a question!
The bit about the question What is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything? actually works. It gives the answer from the Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy.
