The Next Best Thing:
As if it is not enough to do things badly with new technologies, the race to miniaturize the toys just compounds some of the foolishness, as doing badly in a small way is the ultimate in trendy gadgetry.

The race to acquire the latest small toy and demonstrate membership in the cutting edge club seems foolhardy and reckless.
