    Nice. An entire auditorium full of techies also thought so, with that standing ovation.

    Eighty percent of the value for 1% of the cost. Impressive.

    Of course, I can just imagine Johnny doing a presentation in the board room, but then getting the white board and 3D tracking features fouled. Imagine a board meeting getting "seasick" with an unintended 3D presentation of the company's sales.
