The two companies are working together to 'co-develop and commercialize innovative play printers and platforms later this year.'"

[Ed. Note] The first one I would print is Applejack.

    Why is there an editor's note in the article? Why didn't they just post it as a comment like the rest of us?

    That was certainly an annoyance on /. - editors tacking [more] crap onto the articles instead of acting like members of the community and posting comments.

    We're trying to use it to spark conversation. I'm more than happy to post in the comments as well, but sometimes I feel an article needs a little something extra. Also, I can't get down-modded for my notes in the story. I'll bring this up with the other editors though and we'll try to come to a consensus we can all live with. Thanks for mentioning this upset you.

      I didn't find it obtrusive, but I definitely wouldn't want to see these all the time.

        We just discussed this in the IRC and I'll be trying to avoid using this method. Thanks for the feedback!
