Makes you wonder what real computing tools could have been developed 
with the effort it took to create the totally useless eye candy.

Also makes you wonder how much more data from all the useful scientific 
projects out there, could have been process with the wasted CPU and GPU 
cycles it took to do those really useless effects.

What is the obsession with totally useless eye candy? None of it 
actually makes the interface more user-friendly of efficient.

Am I just getting to old to understand its need.
