NeXT couldn't keep up with Intel and by the time Jobs caved in and went with his dual-architecture 68K/Intel binary format, it was too late.

In the mid 1990's the government mandated that children's programming be educational.

Did they really? I was under the impression that they mandated a certain amount of Educational/Informative Children's Programming be shown per week. Hence the Sunday morning cartoons in the time slot when the network didn't have any sporting event or important programming to show.

> For over a century we've had passports without such unspoofable methods and without significant problems.

I'd call for a citation, but based on that incredibly broad statement and all the passport games that have been played over said century and change by spies, criminals, freedom fighters, terrorists, martyrs and evildoers...not to mention others, I think I'm just going to call shenanigans. Or BS, if you prefer.
