Let Google Decide for You

Google is developing a service that will tell you what you’re reading. The Prediction API uses your historical data and labels to perform text analysis.

It is still in development and available only to registered testers at this point; but here’s a demo whipped up by Forbes‘s Jon Bruner to let you give it a try. [%comments]
