They'll put in an Emacs and an Internet. And then it'll tear a hole in spacetime and start consuming everything else in its vicinity.

And then some kid will reduce the code down to a new browser called Phoenix which everybody will love because it's so light and lithe. Oh, wait...

hehehehe, before the put in an emacs, it will read email (jwz law) but then, emacs can already read email, so once they have that, they are covered.

with emacs included they'll even cover this law: "Any sufficiently complicated C or Fortran program contains an ad hoc, informally-specified, bug-ridden, slow implementation of half of Common Lisp"

and actually, that will be easy, all they need is asm.js, compile emacs to that and run it, inside the browser...

greetings, eMBee. (as i read the article, the page includes an ad with the title "less is more" :-)

It already has Emacs. They exposed it as "FirefoxOS".
