Things computers do well.
Computers are really good at math.
Computers are great at remembering every little detail you tell it. However computers don’t remember things you don’t tell it.
Computers know that 1,000,000,000,001 is not the same as 1,000,000,000,002.
Computers don’t mind doing the same thing over and over and over.

Things computers don’t do well.
Computers don’t know how to answer, “Do I look fat in this?”
Computers don’t know that it is a bad idea to have the wife, the ex wife and the girlfriend all in the reception room at the same time.
Computers are really bad at guessing what you really meant by that.
Computers do not understand sarcasm.
