in my opinion:
yet another unessential gadget... 

unessential (as for most of e-gadgets) := no real innovation, no real
benefits for people, environmental impact and (probably) exploitation of
workers to make it (will be manufactured in china? or in a mexican
maquiladora?...), pollution when spread worlwide, e-waste when will become
trash (i.e. see: ... just good
for corporations, marketing and resellers to make money


the whole system is patended:
<cite>"This system is protected by U.S. Patent # 6542091 and may be
licensed to manufacturers."</cite>

it has a patented "input nomenclature": 
<cite>"I understand that the information being presented is proprietary
and the property of In10did Inc. Any use of this content is protected by
U.S. Patent laws. No unauthorized reproduction may be made without the
written consent by In10did. Inc."</cite>

really bad in my opinion
