I first want to say that I agree with much of what you've said, especially about starting small.
Notch has shown us (yet again) that #3 is really the only one that matters.
Early Minecraft was not well coded. It still doesn't have great graphics or sound (though I do like the music) and there really isn't much of a story.
You don't even have to play the story part of the game to have hours and hours of fun and Mojang is doing quite well for themselves.

" also can't the bitcoin protocol just be tweaked by the developers or something?"

Not if they want to be taken seriously as a real currency. You might be tempted to think "The Federal Reserve does that with the $". Sure, but the developers behind bitcoin (if they can even do this, I don't know) are not the Federal Reserve.

I bought the version from Steam a year ago to play it again. It runs in DOSbox and they seem to have worked out all the issues because it worked great on modern hardware. It was five bucks. More power to them but I hope they do something make the game better because I don't see the point otherwise since the steam version is just like playing back in the day.

"The people that this is aimed at don't even know what you're talking about when you say 'FTP'. They just want to move their files around easily and transparently. Now they can."

Now they can? There are already several solutions to this problem and I'm sure the consumers who need it are already using one or more of them. I think it's entirely fair to say that people were expecting more from Apple.

I think you're wrong. Table top computers are not new. They have been around for years and you can get one from several different vendors (including Microsoft). When is the last time you saw someone really using one in a consumer space? If there was such a market as you suggest we would see them more.

You might have mail.
