The reason I read /. Is cuz we're ten posts into the comment section and nearly all are about irradiated killer robots. None are substantive comments about the summary.

Without arguing whether this is or is not a good thing... :) ... What we really need on Slashdot is a button that will scroll you down about 50 posts, right away. (Less for "newer" stories with less comments.)

I'm a millenial who works on mainframes you insensitive clod!

I had to bootstrap a PDP-8 in the Science building during college to complete my introductory programming assignments. That meant physically toggling in the octal sequence to start the high speed paper tape reader.

Now I'm not sure who should get off whose lawn.

Yep, the article states that it is speculation:

After 20-years in purgatory, one of gaming’s most heavily ridiculed peripherals of all time – the Virtual Boy – will be making a comeback. Yes gamers, the Virtual Boy 2 is set to be announced by Nintendo.

Of course it is!

Although they are definitely trying to couch their opinion as fact.

To spot the expert, pick the one who predicts the job will take the longest and cost the most.
