THE POSSESSION OF WEALTH IS IN AND OF ITSELF A SIGN OF POOR VIRTUE. AS SUCH:
1 NEVER TRUST ANY RICH PERSON.
2 NEVER HIRE ANY RICH PERSON.
BY RULE 1, IT IS APPROPRIATE TO PRESUME THAT ALL DEGREES AND CREDENTIALS HELD BY A WEALTHY PERSON ARE FRAUDULENT. THIS JUSTIFIES RULE 2--RULE 1 NEEDS NO JUSTIFIC

having seen this table once, it was a really cool table

I think they hung them on walls for meteorologists to use as well?

they have a few iterations of this now and when they stole the name for their portable line they renamed the tables pixelsense. the first iteration used a projector in a box which is cool because you can literally just build one yourself and have a multitouch coffee table on the cheap.

later versions look mostly like a glass coffee table with an embedded amd system. lenovo tried to copy this but put a lot of really bad software on it. microsoftís demos always had some pretty interesting unpublished multiplayer titles. tbh iím surprised theyíve never tried to consumerize this, especially since displays are cheap these days. a living room thing you can gather around, board games that you could combine with physical pieces, etc. really think this could be a saleable item but as with everything you need the devs to support it and without it existing itís not gonna happen without funding them.

some of the work in these went into their $$ folding studio desktop which tbh i also think is pretty cool.

yeah. give people dumb garbage to spend some cash on. everybodyís got boring tablets, laptops, huge tvís already. if im gonna conspicuously consume, a big dumb table computer is the loving ticket.

get these things in best buy and micro center and get some ads up on youtube, and also tv for the boomers. donít just spend a hundred bucks on web ads that get blocked before you hit publish and quietly update your eshop and b2b catalog.

"Why does that Subaru break down every time you look at it, Travis", Punchy said. I nearly fell out of the jump seat in my Brat, aghast. "That thing a princess?" I coughed and gulped. "Hahahaha, nice one, Punchy", I said

i got the halo master chief collection earlier in the summer and played halo 1 again and it's really not that good a game. bad weapon balance and level design. good music i suppose.

i guess it's kinda like goldeneye, which is also not good, but which became mega popular because it was like the only shooter available for that console.
