Comment Finally! (Score -1, Troll) 46

The customers who pay Google to learn everything about every thought you are ever going to think and kill you before you take action if they don't like you--those supercustomers _deserve_ the benefit of knowing that those who try to gather usage information for free from the sidelines have been thwarted. Only paying customers deserve to rule the world!

under the CFAA any one using this can be facing prison time. Any if they put down jailbreak due to a dumb cop you can get harder time.

Joe: Discussing the CFAA online is a communication that could lead to distress for other Slashdot members. That's a violation of the CFAA. If one of these Vita owners stresses out and commits suicide, you could be hit with a misdemeanor, just like Lori Drew. Let's be nice to the Vita owners. Yes, both of them.

Clearly you never supported the Netware clients for Windows when they were engaged in destroying Novell. They are experts in this operation and have done it multiple times, each time obvious to everyone paying attention. They can and will pull this off, unless they are sued in such a way that the plot is laid bare in public. People will have to be called to testify about off the record conversations. I don't know of any private or corporate entity who could sue Microsoft in such a way. They are simply too powerful. Those of you who think you will resist...well...I'm afraid you will find that you can't. Either the market gets a state-level assist, or MS will get the result it's wanting.

It sounds like you are describing a Nintendo (3)DS. I don't see Nintendo ever replicating the success of the DS/Lite/XL. Too many parents' old phones laying around to use instead.

Nah, I'm not describing anything from the DS line. Last handheld product I know that fits the description would be the Game Boy Advance. DS's are hardly disconnected. If there's a user agreement involved that applies to my kids, it's not the kind of thing I'm talking about. If there's a wifi antenna involved, it's not what I'm talking about.

My three year old already loves the Game Boy Advance. You know what he loves to do with it? Put in cartridges, turn it on, turn it off. He loves it. When I visualize being a kid and seeing this toy, I find this behavior easy to understand. I think anyone who is honest with themselves finds this easy to understand. This experience obviously cannot be virtualized, and kids love to do it. It is therefore easily predictable that this type of toy will return.
