Actually I've heard a psychologist speculate that the constant stimulation of the current world might actually be bad for us physically - at least according to her, it's very much like being in fight-or-flight mode all the time.

I agree, it's like where all chased and have to constantly perform and be available.

Frankly I've formed the exact same opinion as ShangaBill concerning extinction.
The small therapods seem to have evolved into the birds we see everyday.
But where are the big sauropod's descendants ? I assume this jaded (erroneous) opinion is caused by the smaller animals
being a lot more numerous and uninteresting compared to the bigger ones.

Well, you're right, and I guess the OP was just being wishful. But then again, what big advantage is there in loading X86 WIN32 apps via the app store, when an X86 desktop system can load them easily already? If it's simply for the sake of the distribution mechanism (and if MS is going to take a cut), I can't imagine too many wanting to take advantage.

They would have an app store doing all the updating and marketing previously unknown programs.
