Re: What's the point?
Because bitcoin is an illiquid product and dumping 24000 complete units of an illiquid abstract-construct on a market is sure-fire catastrophe.

Your point is not valid at all. at say 100gb per year (and i have years of existing work) i'd be nudging capacity and looking for more storage within a few years, and if i was looking at a solution like this then i'd want to be thinking in years rather than a short term dump.
Your point was which business user would need this sort of space; plenty of them
the problem with the SEGA argument is that now that they're out of the hardware business, their IP has been pimped to every platform under the sun, almost to the point where a new Sonic game brings nothing but rolls of the eyes. Because they struggle to make a proper Sonic game that people want. And their other star IP at the moment is....
nintendo will do a Pokemon MMORPG before they even consider getting out of the hardware business. things are not desperate enough yet.
this is why i'm upgrading to the 5s - i'm actually fairly comfortable with the platform and its integration into the other products i use, in this case a windows desktop and an apple tv. i will admit that i'm underwhelmed but i'm still rocking the 4 (which has been a pretty solid phone in the end.. but i got one of the later revisions) and can afford to go back onto a 2 year plan. what i would have loved to have seen is USB 3.
I don't think the next big phone innovation will come from apple, they've become the mercedes of phones. somewhat limited in selection, priced to the bejesus but if you treat it with care you'll either keep it in great nick or be able to get it fixed with limited hassle.
i look forward to a snappier phone with a better camera, annoyed that i'll have to get an adaptor for my alarm clock dock though.
The point is children, I know, mine's on her second already. The hinge is always a weakspot (eliminated) and the 3D gimmick underused (eliminated).
Add to this experiences you cannot get on any other platform (Animal Crossing and Pokémon spring to mind initially) and a backwards compatibility to the original DS, i see it as a winning move.
As ever, anyone complaining about this device.. well they don't need to buy one, it's not a device or platform for everyone but this e x p a n d s the platform to be even more inclusive.
