   Some computer technology, from some perspectives, yes.  But if you 
want to use that logic, it's also the killer app that killed the housing 
market...by causing grown men to live in their parents' basements. ;)

   Games are a big driver of some types of technology, yes.  But they're 
not the only driver, and they're certainly not the only reason this 
stuff exists, as much as we'd likely all be more comfortable living in 
toyland without the realities and responsibilities of grownup life.

   (I know I sure would, the way this day has been so far)
