No.. this post is not about the Steven Spielberg movie (oh.. I luv that flick!).... nor is it about AI using Neural Networks for robotics and such!
This post is about the Artificial Intelligence that my new Sansa MP3 player, seems to be picking up! BTW, no... I don't wish to see comments saying I should have gone for an iPod!! This was a very well informed decision, and after using my Sansa for a month now, I am absolutely satisfied with my choice!
Now, coming back to the topic... I put my entire ARR collection on shuffle mode these days and leave it to my Sansa to decide what song I'd be listening next! This is when my Sansa does very interesting stuff!!

One day, it played Mujhe Rang De (Takshak) and immediately followed it up with Rang Hai (Meenaxi). I thought to myself - has it selected these songs back-to-back, because both songs start with the same word? Then, I got a surprise - the next song was Pachchai Nirame (Alaipayuthey) - again something to do with colour!!

And on another instance, Rang Hai (Meenaxi) was followed by Satrangi Re (Dil Se)!!

Here's one more - It played Ishwar Allah (1947 - Earth) and Ek Tum Hi Bharosa (Pukar) back -to-back. Though both songs have the words "Ishwar" and "Allah" repeated throughout the song, nowhere in the ID3 tags or the filenames were these words mentioned (which was the explanation I had before I checked the ID3 tags)!!

These are just 3 of many such instances in just 10-15 days in shuffle mode... I've given up... I've stopped analysing and have started enjoying my music these days!!

I was tagged by Ponnarasi! Tag's simple - write about your new year resolutions!
Have been so busy that I'm writing about my resolution almost at the end of the month!!!

Hmmm... what are my resolutions for this year?!!

Only one that I can think of, right now - I have started many "projects" and most of them are incomplete!! I start something, and then I hit a roadblock... and then, I find something more interesting, and I start off the next one, leaving this one behind... As of now, I have three audio recording/mixing stuff, one flash animation, and one video editing in different levels of completion!

Hope I complete all of them this year, before I start off anything more!! :D

I'm not tagging anyone... If anyone's interested, take it up and post your resolution in ur blog!
