Considering we here in the states barely have nationwide 4G coverage and most of us are working with 2-10GB per month maybe it's a little early to get excited on being able to use that up in a matter of seconds rather than minutes.
Besides power consumption, app store lockdown and not wanting to alienate first gen customers, what reasons are there not to just cut your losses with RT?
If MS had ditched RT and only released the Pro and sold it at a loss to meet that $500 price point, or a second less expensive version with an Atom/i3 type processor it would have made marketing simpler and more effective and more people i feel would have been on board. The face that RT came first means they blew through all their momentum on something nobody wanted. By the time the Pro came out (which besides the battery life is a great piece of hardware) it was too expensive and nobody cared.
MS tried to win on all fronts and ended up losing both.
I can see this being an option offered for the Dell/HP/Lenovo's of the world who are already accustomed to building machines with soldered chips and have the infrastructure to support it. I cannot think Intel is so clouded as to wipe off a hardcore section of their customer base, even if its a smaller amount of total sales.
Also I'm curious do they host any of the retro tournaments (ala King of Kong) at this location, a move to a larger facility might make that feasible and get some more attention to the place.
Overall the arcade of old is a hard business model to sustain in this day and age for obvious reasons, especially with some games costing $1 or more per credit. You need something unique to get people in and staying in.
With all these private rocket companies (SpaceX, Armadillo, Bigelow etc) why no venturing into the commerical airspace market? I would assume its too regulated and just impossible to compete with Boeing/Airbus/Tupolev and make a profit, even with a killer design.
All this extra effort at the checkpoints is to keep up what most people here already know what it is. The illusion of absolute safety in a system where it can never be guaranteed 100%.
