But its being misrepresented as real price, in a real offer to sell real playstations to the real public.

Assuming they sell you the ps4 on amazon for $100, if they put up on amazon that they'll sell you a ps4 for $100, then go buy it from walmart and sell it to you it's not fraud. Heck they could sell it to their friends, although that would probably be conspiracy.

If I'm running a server, I don't even care about boot time at all.

You've apparently never had to manage a server that took 10, 20, or 30 minutes to boot up, excessively long boot up times are a common occurrence in enterprise environments. After a system update/reboot I want to be able to ssh back into the box as soon as possible, if I can't ssh back into the box within five minutes I'll typically have to lunch a recovery console or submit tickets to have hands & eyes go look at the box for me... it's a major pain in the ass. If a watchdog timer bounces a box I want it to come back up as soon as possible so I and the other service delivery teams can start troubleshooting why it failed. Fast boot on servers is very important to administrators, we have SLAs, maintenance windows, managers, customers, and service delivery teams to deal with.

For capitalism humans are required not only for labor but also as consumers. Therefore the elites require to find a way to distribute money to the rest otherwise their system will collapse. However, I have the distinct impression that they do not know that.

I have the distinct impression that they do not care about that, all they care about is hoarding wealth, capitalism is simply a means to an end for them.

I feel they should be given the same rights as mentally incompetent persons. In particular, they should be given the right to have a conservator appointed; this would benefit them because it is usually crime for a conservator to take advantage of a conservatee. If they are granted personhood status, I would anticipate they would be entitled to SSI, Medicare, Medicaid, and Food Stamps. They should also be entitled to make, at least, minimum wage for any work they perform.

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code. -- Dave Olson
