I hope it catches on. Just give me a tickbox if I want masking when in a public place.
"Carreon Up the Khyber", indeed.
I can only buy a 911 from Porsche. Obviously, they are a monopoly that needs breaking up.
Basically, nobody cares about the guts, and those who do are capable of finding out by themselves.
No need to sound so apologetic. I also like my games to have some production values.
Not as long as trite, tired Luddite bullshit like this gets published, at least.
The problem is that the reason for global warming denial was very rarely, if ever, healthy scientific skepticism (which no sane person has an issue with); but rather political and religious dogma trying to pass as skepticism.

Oh, they will definitely catch on eventually. Google are the ones making the most noise about it, and they don't seem to mind showing off unfinished, shit vapourware; but every tech company worth its salt is prototyping glasses and other wearables, and eventually someone will come up with a model that doesn't make you look like an unspeakable neckbeard. Can't fight the future.
It's also possible that the author is mistaking anecdote for data, and that's just how his brain works.

They are a pretty large elephant-in-the-room in every discussion.
