(2002-09-24) -- The much anticipated beta release of Gore 2.0 includes the same neo-human voice reproduction component, and runs on a platform which pre-dates the first Windows OS.
A developer who has tested Gore 2.0 said, "It's uncanny to hear how well it reproduces the human voice -- albeit a stilted, monotone one -- but it almost sounds real."
DNC, the marketer of Gore 2.0, ran a test before a live audience this week in California, in which the product simulated passion and concern about a variety of political issues. The reviews were stellar.
"I'm telling you, people came up to us afterward and said Gore never sounded so good," according to a DNC spokesman. "The battle now will be to get former Gore 1.0 customers to upgrade to 2.0."
DNC said the final release version will include the Clinton plug-in, because research shows that people have forgotten how bug prone it was.
OK...now if he can just figure out how to keep Shrub from stealing the 2004 election, Gore 2.0 might be worth hassling with the bugs....
