From the article: "Along with Star Wars and Indiana Jones, WarGames was one of my favourite movies growing up. (I guess it helped that I was am a computer geek.) In the movie, WOPR is a massive computer that learns. From a simple game of tic-tac-toe it learns that global genocide, probably killing itself in the process, is not a good idea.
Sony is also a massive entity, but one that does not seem capable of learning."
