The Kasparov/Deep Blue match is tied at a game apiece and two

(http://www.chess.ibm.com/home/may07/story_3.html), though, was
the following quip. Reporters suck...

> The strangest question heard today in the press room was from a reporter

> said he wanted to get Deep Blue on tape, saying "Hello." But, alas, he
> was told the computer has no voice capability."
