Haha I remember all the viral shill dickweeds all over the internet claiming this was going to be the best thing evarrrr.

Yeah, I got flamed repeatedly by certain 'people' on this board for claiming that this smelled like a fucking scam. Where are they now?

Tumbler is still here. I think he was the only one here using it. He defended it, to an extent.

But it wasn't a scam. A scam is something designed to rip people off. Nigerian princes are a scam. Half of what you see on infomercials are scams. Gizmondo was probably a scam.

This was just a poorly timed idea backed by bad technology. It may still end up being where we go in the future, with Sony testing the waters now with a fairly cool idea. This came too soon, and no one was really clamoring for it, anyway. But I don't think the people working on this were trying to rip anyone off. They were trying to make a legitimate, good product. It's as much a scam as the Arch Deluxe was.
Bad ideas aren't scams, they're just bad ideas.
