This seems really… pointless.

Not like 3D was useful on Nintendo’s gaming devices either.

But just think of the opportunity to release a cost-reduced version without the gimmick in an embarrassing tacit admission of failure! Opportunities like that don’t come every day.

That moment happens a lot in my life. It’s usually a sign of someone elses not telling you the plan, and guessing can be fun. So, when that happens I like to look at it from the other side of things.

Who would find a gazillion wireless, networked, cameras with microphones and facial recognition software, useful? An arch villain in a dystopian work of fiction, right? How many mandatory firmware rollouts would it take for dystopian fiction to seem slightly less paranoid?

(how this came across my desk a year later, no idea)
