It's a neat concept but typical of today's hype. I have two of the
qualified Series Two units already network, thus ready to go. I
signed up for the system operating software today and the site advised
me to be patient because it would be several weeks. Plus, the
third-party software necessary to make it all work is not ready.

Since I update programming and system software via the Internet you
would think they could make that distinction because I don't tie up
phone lines and a software update is transmitted to my machine in
minutes instead of a couple of hours.

Oh well ... hype is the way of American life.
