Re: "It's hard to tell"

But log what, exactly? I'm not an expert but the way these current systems are built has little to do with how e.g. machine "intelligence" was approached in the 1950s.

To be fair, in this case they had to ship that browser "already", making any kind of long-term nurturing difficult.

I don't necessarily mean they should hire a copywriter for these, but the whole thing looks like it was copypasted together from fragments gathered from multiple sources, by someone with little or no understanding what any of this means. Would be nice to at least put the finished product for an approval round so that the people who provided the requirements could give feedback before it's published. But maybe that's not how their "process" works.

Yep, it's pretty hard core stuff I have been told (but never had the pleasure to actually sample this delicacy). For instance, when one is opening a surströmming can, it should be done under water (in a kitchen sink filled with water, for example) because of the possibility (probability?) of an explosion occuring. If it explodes in free air, your place will reek of 'strömming for months, even years.

^Air flow

The brochure (http://www.nexsan.com/satabeast/satabeast.pdf) for that previous "butt ugly" (which it is) model states that it has a "Revolutionary cooling system." What ever that means. They also mention "..tachometer-monitored blowers to provide maximum power and cooling."
