    I don’t know whether computers are improving the style of play, I know they are changing it. Chess has become a different game, one could say that computers have changed the world of chess. That is pretty clear.  -  Vladimir Kramnik

    Rybka (for example) resigns when it is +5.00 (or something) for 3 or 5 consecutive moves.

    I'm pretty sure Deep blue is programmed to use time by itself and resign whenever it wants to. Atleast my houdini knows how to spend time/resign.
