A sage-like individual once pointed out to me that almost all great inventions are in fact the result of laziness or boredom. From the wheel to the GPU, the trend continues. Where would we be if all the people wanting to play video games weren't driving GPU technology? ;)

That is reminds me my old post about an old 3dfx commercial. Check out that old commercial itself on youtube. It's worth it.
