John Carmack has created some of the greatest video games of all time. He's helmed successful companies, has more than twenty years of experience in the video game industry, pushed the boundaries of iOS gaming with the recent release of Rage. Oh, and he also moonlights as a rocket scientist as the lead engineer of his own aerospace company, Armadillo Aerospace. When this guy talks, people listen.
If there was ever a relevant moment in the original Star Wars trilogy, it would have been during the Empire Strikes Back when an ancient Jedi Master named Yoda calmly stated that "Size matters not." Yoda then proceeded to lift a multi-ton spaceship out of a muddy bog and placed it exactly where he wanted it using nothing more than the force. With that inspirational moment in mind, we think of Sony's recent unveiling of the much-anticipated, next-generation handheld console, currently codenamed the "Next Generation Portable" -- or "iPod touch killer" in some circles.
