    Will the Scots ever be truly understood?




    WACKY WEB WEEK

    Will the Scots ever be truly understood?


    By Kathleen Atkins
    The people of Scotland have a lot on their minds, particularly this week when they vote for or against independence from the United Kingdom. The Scotsmen in this video have a more modest ambition: they just want to get to a building's 11th floor via an elevator equipped with voice-recognition technology. Emotional (and slightly vulgar) speech ensues.

    This video illustrates exactly why I HATE voice recognition technology! I have lost my patience and yelled like that at "voice recognition" (ha-ha) telephone systems. The more I yell at the stupid thing, the worse it gets.
