In a time when kids are born with dozens of conditions, our numbers multiply at a staggering rate worldwide, and that scenario where we must ration our resources VERY carefully (like we should have done since the beginning) is not THAT ridiculously far away, this is actually positive in my eyes.

Do we really need to procreate in such a hurry? I'm not the biggest fan of sodas out there, but if they're gonna help reduce the output of the baby-factory generation out there, I'm all for even buying other people a soda or two.

I don't know of any individuals using cloud based services

the fuck?. Gmail, Google Apps / Docs, Dropbox, BaseCamp, Flickr, Spotify, Netflix. Most individuals I know do almost everything they use a computer for "in the cloud". The corporations are the ones that seem to be holding on to legacy standalone apps.

None of those things are really relevant to the business world. You don't share DVDRips or ISOs over a network for your buddies at work, you don't have any need to watch movies or upload 100 pictures from that Canon of yours at a workplace, the only semi-useful thing in there are Google Docs (don't count Gmail since any e-mail is just as efficient in sending and receiving e-mails) but then again, most corporations already have volume licenses so that's not even that big a hassle.

It only seems that every other week there's a new concept or at least some advances/new implementations of old concepts for 3D displays.

It's clear that people wanna move forward but we're still laughing at those that bought 3D glasses + 3D TVs, so slow down a bit, please.
