possibly it is us...

In fact ...most definitely it is us...

If as was mentioned I don't know how many times ...
that nature favours the indolent, and lazy...
sure natural selection is there and working...
and evolution as well..
but
as well with our species ..we can come up with something really great...
and turn it into the lowest common denominator quickly...

I think tackling the problem from both ends is a good idea..

Problem 1
Too many garbage devices on the planet...
smothering and impeding really fine work that is attempted..

Problem 2
Too many people ...( I won't set criteria, or the bar at which we should debate getting rid of "excess cargo" on this planet ) that are using said junk devices...

There is a direct and easy to see line between the two...

I do however have a solution..

All it takes is just one successful start up and we can sort this universal problem out...

And it doesn't have to be a phone that has everything packed into it...

All it needs is one function....
a fun function...
what I have absconded from the term...
"Laser Pointer"
and we can "weed all the excess drones out of the bee hive"...(so to speak)

Simply "point" your phone and "tag" the offending individual / useless device .
The real expense and beauty of the system isn't IN the phone itself...
It is the uploaded exact geo - tag (of the offending device / individual) to the real cost...
the Satellite in orbit that acquires said uploaded coordinates ...and then promptly "lasers" the location to a fine ash.

2 problems solved in one...
a global population problem solved.
enough room for proper devices to flourish with folks intelligent enough to use them...

and fun too..

the " Laser Pointer"

I am sure SpaceX or any of the plentiful start ups could help us out with the satellite launch..at a reasonable price (considering the money that has been thrown at phone startups ...putting a Death Satellite in orbit is cheap...)
