Re: You have no idea what the point of the article was, do you?
oh noooooo, it seems my flippant response has elluded some readers, let me break it down for yooz guyz
ok. to address your rejoinder, l i got rid of my car as the shops are within walking distance (do you remember not driving everywhere coz you were to lazy to walk?) anyway, the car thing doesn't work for me as an analogy. The cooker is so much better - I have an unbelievably small kitchen (as a mini smartphone is to a laptop), but i still NEED a cooker, so I replaced my standard cooker with a mini one, it takes less space and it's more efficient - the point being "I still NEED a cooker" and we don't have any alternative at this point in spacetime!
At the moment our technology has not yet come up with 'food replicators', our best kitchen tech is the oven and microwave. If the head of Sony blah blah said ovens have no plaice in the kitchen i'd laugh at him and make some pisstakey analogy about mobiles not needing quad-cores.
If you still don't get it you're screwed. Bandage your knuckles and chase the sun :)
