Watson on Jeopardy!

Well, the 3 day commercial for IBM on Jeopardy! is over and Watson won. As Ken Jennings said "I, for one welcome our new computer overlords." After revealing that Toronto is in the US, or at least it's airports are, I'm surprised that Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter didn't realize Watson's weakness. Captain Kirk figured it out in 1967! (The best part starts at 1 minute in.)

When I saw Watson, I thought, "Oh crap, it's Skynet from Terminator!"
