Then why are Xbox2 dev kits Mac G5 based??

In reply to Rob Enderle
The Xbox2 will be based on PowerPC. The early Dev Kits run on Mac G5s with a special WinNT kernal.
There's no reason why MS would make developers use G5 Macs if it wasn't going to stay PowerPC.
It may not be "the" Apple G5 970 chip, but it certainly will be a Power5 variant.

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
