Technion Institute (Israel's premier university)

Although it is my alma mater I thought I should point out that its full name is the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology and so only provides technical classes, akin to MIT. When I was there they didn't even have a medical faculty. Although I support that they are "premier" at what they do cover, the claim for premier university would probably be open for challenge by other universities who provide a wider and non-technical range of topics.

That video for "made of meat" made me cringe. There is a service to create these videos where you plug in dialogue and choose characters and it puts together a video like this. I can't stand them.

 

For a much better viewing experience try out one of these versions

I agree that these two versions are easier in the eyes (I've seen them both before), but I sort of prefer the machines to look like machines (even if one is a cardboard box LOL)

You still haven't answered the original question, which was "which video did you LIKE the best?" LOL

@Kfield: Did you see the comment that little scamp "Truthfinder" posted on my column yesterday about the Fitbit Zip wearable electronics?

He (or she) basically called me an idiot. I don't need that (I have a wife and a mother who -- between them -- are more than capable of handling my needs in the abuse department :-)

I must admit to being a tad miffed... dare I say peeved? Just wait to you see my follow-up column, which should appear anytime soon...
