Ghouls, ghosts and geeks

Last night my kids wanted to light a coal fire, put the lights out and all read ghost stories.

It was too late to start lighting fires so I Googled for a large image of a burning, coal fire and set it to fill the iMac's screen, I then googled for sound FX of a crackling fire and looped it to be continuous, put the lights out and we all sat around the Mac telling ghost stories.

Once we had all told them my elder said "But the computer hasn't told a story Daddy". So I Googled for the text of a ghost story and got the Mac to read it out loud!
