Very clever, even when I won and it showed the disagreements, I felt I may have given some misleading answers.

thanks for that Kander

I won. Sorry for it; I had to go for the obscure thing. Mine was an Indonesian fruit called rambutan. It didn't get it even after 28 questions. But toward the end it guessed a nectarine and a kiwi (It said it was getting close).

It didn't guess coffee cup (it guessed cordless phone instead...)

Maybe my answers are different from what regular people would answer. haha Here are my questions/answers for coffee cup:

I am guessing that it is a cordless phone?
Yes , No , Close
19. Can you recycle it? No.
18. Is it shiny? Rarely.
17. Does a hockey player use it? Probably.
16. Is it used by the police? Probably.
15. Is it multicolored? Maybe.
14. Do you use it at work? Yes.
13. Can it be painted? Probably.
12. Does it break if dropped? Probably.
11. Does it open? No.
10. Is it soft? No.
9. Is it white? Maybe.
8. Is it made of metal? Rarely.
7. Would you find it on a farm? Probably.
6. Is it usually colorful? Sometimes.
5. Do you hold it when you use it? Yes.
4. Does it get wet? Partly.
3. Does it bring joy to people? Depends.
2. Is it smaller than a loaf of bread? Yes.
1. It is classified as Other.

I think it has a hard time with a lot of rarely, sometimes, maybe, party.. answers. I try to make a yes or no as much as possible. I did Koala bear and it guessed that also! Oh, and I did an eye, and an engine and it got those as well. For some items it still needs a bit of training.

Neat.

EDIT: Got me again. Speakers. Very very nice.

I've only tried it once. After 20 questions it incorrectly guessed "water pistol". After 8 more questions, for a total of 28, it correctly guessed "webcam".

Never been a big fan of fruit. Though I do like Orange juice on occasion, as many people who have cought the cold before do

I'm surprised. I've only gotten it once so far this year. Usually by this time I've had it twice!

HEY! Me too. (why in the world would I have picked that fruit if it wasn't my favorite?...)

Have you had it fresh, redmyrlin? (probably, if it's your favorite). I like to listen (or imagine, rather) when my husband tells me about the rambutan tree they had growing in their front yard when he was young. Wow - that would be like a dream...

Well never as fresh as straight from the tree! But I lived for 2 years in Thailand and used to buy fresh fruit from the street vendors in Bangkok - including Rambutan (or Ngor as they call it in Thai).
