Article is confused on release dates:

In reply to Jeff Meisner
From the article:

"The PS3 first hit the market in November 2006, long after the Wii and the Xbox 360."

Uh, no, no it didn't. True, the Xbox 360 came out in November of 2005, giving it a one year jump on the PS3...

The Wii, on the other hand, launched on November 19th, 2006. That's two days AFTER the PS3 launched. (North American release dates).

Now if you're talking about Europe, you'd be correct. Sony delayed the launch of the console there until the following year. But that had more to do with properly supplying the Japanese and American launches more than any hardware constraint.

How important is a candidate's knowledge of technology in winning your vote?
Extremely -- technology is at the center of most of the world's big problems and solutions.
Very -- a candidate who doesn't understand technology can't relate to young people.
Somewhat -- a general understanding is sufficient.
Not very -- choosing good advisers is more important than direct knowledge.
Not at all -- technology is often a distraction from more important issues.
