Words almost fail me. How can a group of what must be fairly bright people come up with an idea like this and possibly think it might be succesful in a post-iPod world?

Have you ever considered....

.... turning off the PC & stepping out your (real) front door once in a while?

I really think maybe you are taking what is by your own admission a 'game' way too seriously.
