Today's digital cameras are powerful enough to run arcade games
of not all that long ago.  My toaster works fine using my existing
ten digits, doesn't need more, but for devices which truly need

doesn't have enough horsepower to run a basic XML/HTTP client
and render a UI that doesn't depend on a huge display.
