I am reminded of someone somewhere (memory says one of the regulars
over on a classiccmp list, but that memory is fuzzy) writing of going
to a relatively mass-market store and expressing interest in buying a
computer. The salesdroid promptly went into a spiel about how it would
keep and play music, hold photos, play games, do email and "Internet"
(meaning Web browsing)...pretty much everything, in fact, except the
one thing the person actually wanted to do with it.
That's right. Program it.
