It's come to this for IBM: Watson is now a gimmick app on the iPhone

If I remember rightly Watson uses it's user behaviour as one of it's information sources. So a Doctor not accepting Watson's diagnosis will cause it to learn to diagnose better, a financial advisor overruling it's advice will cause it to tout different products etc. etc.

Question: When Mum and Dad ignore the must-have toy of the season will that cause Watson to recommend that everybody gets an apple, an orange and a doll for Christmas?
