Over at Engadget, Chris Ziegler has a good piece on the unfortunate circumstances which led Microsoft to kill its Kin socialphone a couple of months after launching it. I dunno whether his account gets it all right, but isn’t it manifestly obvious that the misbegotten Kin shows how dangerous it is to have the resources to pursue pretty much any project you want?

(And just to join the chorus: The one thing that was unquestionably neat about Kin was the Studio Web site which automatically replicated most of the stuff on your phone in online form. Hope the idea makes it into Windows Phone 7.)
