And there you've hit the nail on the head. As I see it, John's
targeted his product to those with =< 0.5 braincells. And, let me
tell you, there're a whole heck of a lot more of them than there
are of us.
If you have even half a brain cell, you'll recognize the marketing
hype for what it is. You still might buy one of these if you're
lazy, but that's a separate matter.
But if you're in the sub-semi-braincell majority, you won't have
any clue about how to do these sorts of things for real. I rather
suspect that the CrunchBox is a pretty good product, for what it
is. I'll even go so far as to bet something minor--lunch,
say--that it's superior to anything offered by Linksys and
friends. If I'm right, that means that, should sales take off, the
rest of us probably would have a lot less crap to deal with coming
from zombies whose owners either used nothing or something
Products like this have their place in the world. Heck, they
probably have a bigger place than that taken by the right way to
do things. I, for one, am glad to see somebody giving people what
they want with a healthy dose of what they need mixed in and
designed to not look too much like broccoli.
Go for it, John!
