Lego kills Mindstorms
Basically, Lego, as an organization, just never learned to adapt to the high-paced world of high-tech toys. Heck, they didn't get the whole trend / tie-in toy market either. So, they lost a lot of money and now their going to try to deal with the consequences by retreating back into their old, core market.
Hmm... Anybody interested in creating a venture to take over that market and do things the seriously fun, geek way?
