Don't you just hate when you wind up in a store with people who are in a socioeconomic class that is pretty obviously about two levels lower than your own?

the AT&T Hobbit CPU

it was going to be used in the BeBox and the first systems Be designed and built used it before they switched to PowerPC

and AT&T essentially forced its use in the EO Communicator when the Go PenPoint operating system it ran was originally designed for the i386 (and essentially the PC architecture, adapted to a tablet)

it was basically an ARM-equivalent RISC CPU designed by the phone company; it wasn’t actually bad, per se, it was more that it’s entire existence was kind of confusing since it wasn’t like AT&T’s previous CPU (the Western Electric 32K series, not to be confused with the National Semiconductor 32K series) was used by just about nobody but AT&T themselves

counterpoint: floppies are exactly the right speed for humans

if you're moving a few-kb image or text file from your pc to a diskette, it makes very pleasing clicking sounds and the progress bar fills to completion quickly but not too quickly that you can't savor the moment. just a couple seconds and it's done, but you can be sure it happened. the instantaneous transfer to e.g. a thumb drive isn't any more practical, and it doesn't really feel like anything happened at all.
