I see some (non reasonable) reasons for that phenomenon. First, it is easier to get disappointed with a 99c app than with a $800 tablet. Second, there is a perception of little value on cheap things.
Is this a car analogy to the famous porn games/sex doll argument?
Google Glass could block distracting billboards.
Is it necessary to simulate the WHOLE universe at a given scale in order to provide the simulated agents with a view of that scale? What if we provide local, "on-demand" simulation for the agents looking at a given scale?

Outlasting my co-workers means something completly different around here.
There have been recent rumours about Brazil again considering the russian PAK-FA project.

I like your suggestion. I do not mind Metro or that fancy programs manager. The later works quite well from me actually. I use it only when I do not have the application I need pinned on my task bar, which is just 5% of the time. With this in mind, the programs manager in win8 is much easier to use than the previous versions. The translucent background you mention would help to keep context, which removes a bit of overload from your brain.
On the other hand, they should reintroduce the automatic shadow backup feature of windows 7. This feature is no on by default in win 8 and it is much much more difficult to configure. It allowed me to look like a hero to some friends already.
I would accept that if politicians and big companies also install some sort of "corruption-detection rootkit" in their computers.
I guess both of you have a point. I can summarize the issue stating the obvious: the techniques (on vitro beef, GMO, etc) are not the problem; the problem consists of the organizations controlling these techniques (Monsanto, etc). And the problem is this: monopoly.

Well, I was amazed how fast his article in Wikipedia got updated. It didn't take more than a minute. Also, many big news websites in my country are down. That never happened before, as far as I know.
