a device which uses some cloud services to recognize the words you say can record stuff and store it somewhere on the internet?

Not really. Their flagship phones cost half as much as flagships from Samsung, Sony etc, and from my experience actually run better and more stable. Not to mention they don't come with all that bloatware that can't be removed like Facebook etc.
Bought a Mi 6 for 320€, the value for the price is incredible. I sure as hell won't buy another Sony/Samsung again, not after the experience with two flagship Xperias...
Given your use case, you don't need a discrete graphic card at all.
I play games. nVidia has no competition on that market.
ATI has been trying to come up with functional drivers for 30 years, and they still haven't accomplished that.
Binary blob or not, nVidia drivers work.
umm, if a shop ships to foreign countries, it usually has at least an English version of its page. Quite often other languages as well.
In the last 6 months, I've ordered more stuff from Germany than from shops in my country - simply because they did not have the products that I wanted, or had very long shipment times whereas the German shops had everything available in their warehouses, ready to be shipped.
The only thing holding back cross-border commerce in my opinion are worries about possible issues with warranty claims.
It's not my problem when an incompetent vendor goes out of business.
End of life does not mean that all existing copies stop working. There's absolutely nothing wrong with running XP after it's no longer supported, as long as security measures are taken. Like keeping the computers off the network or on a dedicated VLAN with no access to the rest of the network. That desktop with that special exotic unsupported hardware can run another 10-20 years on Windows XP just fine. It just needs to be handled as a security risk, that's all.
Valve is not going after PC gamers - they already have that market. Valve is going after console gamers.
And if they manage to deliver console-like experience with these steamboxes, they might as well succeed.
Running a Linux PC with a dumb controller instead of a keyboard is not an issue - XBMC already accomplished that with Xbmcbuntu - where a simple MCE remote can be used to do pretty much everything.
Valve would never make their game a Steam Machine exclusive. That would be a dickish move, and Gabe is better than that.
