I'm pretty sure my PS3 will be more useful to me 8 years from now than a lamp... What with the Blu-Ray and media player bits and all. More importantly, though, I've installed Linux on it and it's now a kick-ass computer. Much more useful than a lamp!
#6, please don't be a fanboy. We all love Ps3, but we also all know there will be something much better in 8 years anyways, blu-ray and all that included. The lamp probably won't be replaced, though. Not a big deal, but it's disappointing. Better luck next year..?
While I readily acknowledge that I tend to be a fanboy, my point was that a linux machine running on a cell processor is still more useful 8 years from now than a lamp, regardless of whether there's a PS4 or 5 out or not. Because of that, #4's assertion that a lamp would be more useful was, in my opinion, bullshit. That's all I was trying to say.
