Would you take one? Moral Dilemma or Easy Choice?

If you saw 3 unopened bottles of ice-cold soda sitting unattended in a public space, would you take one?

I was recently in an situation where 3 small bottles of soda were sitting alone as if to say “take me”. I have a very guilty conscience and if I took one, it probably would of weighed on me for days as I contemplate ‘Did I just take someone’s drink?’, ‘Was I stealing?’, ‘What if I get caught?’. Therefore, I didn’t take one; however, the person I was with did and without a second thought. I neither agree or disagree with the actions; after all, it could easily be argued that if no one takes them, they’re going to waste.

If you’ve been following the Microsoft Kinect release over the past week, you’ve probably seen headlines like the above. They’re interesting, energetic, compelling, and generally the same. By Reading through Gizmodo, Engadget or any ‘major’ blogging outlet, you’ll see that progress and results are moving fast and any attempt to regurgitate them and I’d probably put you to sleep (if you’re not already).

The press often glorifies results (what’s been accomplished) over
