This depends greatly. Some people i know, i will tell them how to unlock my phone to change music and whatnot. I trust them enough with it and what is behind passwords on there. I can trust my brother and dad with my pin to my card, but wouldnt to anyone else. All other passwords are mine.

I fear your knowledge of cars is pretty limited with comments like this. You seem to think the only engines that exist are in econboxes. Go look at some rally engines that are pulling 300+ hp at 2.0 liters running insane anti lag systems. You use idiotic words to try to make a nonexistant point. The same could be said for electric engines. They use a doohicky to send electricity to a gizmo that spins around this trinket and moves this other thing. I used to build R/C cars with elecric motors when i was like 10. That makes it seem alot less like magic.

Because its useful for a myriad of applications. A glaringly obvious example is any football game like Madden, it allows you to look through and choose plays without anyone else seeing your choices. For racing games it would be a great place to put additional telemetry readouts that you dont need to often look at, instead of having them clutter your HUD. Adding more shit onto already cluttered screens breaks the immersion. The less you can show that doesnt belong in the games universe on screen. the better.

No. People that would normally buy a console, will just buy a console. Or a gaming pc with windows on it. If there were like 3 Steam Machines to choose from then i would agree with you, but with 14+ different boxes you still have the hassle of having to make sure the game you want to play will run on your particular machine.
