Purring Kitty is an interesting-looking bit of software that’ll get your Nokia phone vibrating for as long as you like. Easily bought by SMS from within the UK, but it’s more expensive and more complicated from other countries. I like the idea, but I’m more interested in getting one of these, to be honest. And it won’t support Purring Kitty. How boring of me, huh? (via Wired, via Jane, who has used a game accessory in a similar manner)

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
