Lazy Friday Links, Vol. 3

Merry Christmas, everyone. Let’s get lazy:

1) Our Link That Actually Makes You Think™ is about how phones are getting, well, really really smart. Pando Daily ran a piece about ‘app overload’ that discussed machine learning and how “your smartphone already knows you better than your mom does.” We’re really intrigued by recent talk on services like Google Now and Grokr, and yes, artificial intelligence. (And we want to see Ray’s new office at Google.)

2) People in Wisconsin, in the fall, wakeboarding on cranberries.

3) Speaking of Wisconsin, they put cheese on roads to keep them clear in the winter.

4) And of course, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Macaulay Culkin.

*Obligatory holiday cat-related-something.

Happy Friday, and happy holidays.
