I just watched this news report by John Stossel that was a real eye opener. Apparently this 100 year old Japanese company is using American made computer chips to create a new toy that kids are obsessing over. It's distracting them from homework and creating such a product demand that some adults travel thousands of miles to get the latest toy games! I hope you take this video to heart so you can make sure your kids don't fall prey to this new evil!

How quaint. They come in two categories: sports, and adventure.

Wow, the nostalgia trip of Nintendo mania. I liked his last few minutes. It takes imagination and thought to get through them and as long as they aren't obsessing with them, fine! That kind of thinking was rare back then.

And "watching Nintendo" was a nice, clear way to illustrate that people still didn't even really understand what it was all about. Or if they did understand, weren't used to the ideas.

Remember people who called it "Intendo?"

This video is an amazing nostalgia trip.

I thought that was funny too.

Another interesting point is even back in 1988 they were accusing Nintendo of limiting supply and they denied it due to chip shortages.

Some things never change. BTW, I am still waiting on that cabbage patch kid. I can't believe they are still holding back the supply!

I had one but it was way after the craze was diminished such that one could get one by walking into a store.

I've headed out on Black Friday to get some really nicely priced stuff but never been part of a store rush or jumped in the air to get someone an employee threw to a crowd.
