I imagine many are exposed to the process and know people in it, they're using their own money, and often use shoddy components that didn't quite pass Q&A. Its a bit like the Korean 27" monitors that were the rage last year, the panels were the ones that didn't quite meet the grading for Dell / LG / Apple.

Except that it isn't an investing platform, the backers aren't getting equity in the company. Personally I'm hopeful that eventually one of these failed projects will be sued and we'll get a better idea of the legal rights of the backers. Plus maybe one of these shitty companies will be forced into bankruptcy so everyone understands this isn't free money, its real life.

I used GTalk on the desktop for a long time, unfortunately they canned it and Hangouts doesn't really work for me as Google still can't get its shit together with multiple accounts (e.g. legacy gmail + Apps domain). My primary email is my apps domain, but I can't train everyone else to message me at the correct address which means I'd need to go through the Chrome "Switch User" every restart.... or I can just not use Hangouts.

Latency and bandwidth on a local network should be irrelevant. Sure if stuck using wifi in an apartment you might have issues but in that case invest in a long video cable.

Most controller based games are pretty forgiving for input latency, and I'm certainly not going to sit on a couch with a keyboard and mouse seutp.
