When +NASA​ gets the #BlackHole pictures developed, I hope what we see is ourselves looking back out at us.

Update 1: A new, positive article showed up on Forbes tonight: "The Joy-Cons Are The Real Reason Why The Nintendo Switch Will Succeed" https://goo.gl/N9dP32 by +Ollie Barder

Update 2: Well, they're back to bashing it! "The Switch Is A Kobayashi Maru For Nintendo" https://goo.gl/quuhB0 by +Paul Tassi
Seriously, +Forbes seems to have an ax to grind regarding #NintendoSwitch...I'm not saying there's editorial agreement/collusion at Forbes to trash the console, but these recent headlines sure do feel like it.

Examples:
1. "The Nintendo Switch Sounds Woefully Underpowered" (sic) by +Erik Kain https://goo.gl/pDO8DC
2. "The Hidden Costs Of The Nintendo Switch Keep Adding Up" (AKA "Shocker, Peripherals Cost Money!") by +Paul Tassi https://goo.gl/UsnD5N
3. "Is The Nintendo Switch A Link Between Worlds Or Another Wii U?" by @MattRyanPerez https://goo.gl/gfwMYm
4. "Why I'm Worried The Nintendo Switch Is Just Another Wii U" by +Paul Tassi https://goo.gl/Uw8ClB
5. "Why The Nintendo Switch Is Not Yet Worth The Nostalgia It Is Built On" by @cebsilver https://goo.gl/2v4Qkp

The only notable positive op-ed I could find at Forbes was:
"Nintendo Will Own 2017 If They Can Pull Off The Zelda-Switch Launch Combo" by +Paul Tassi https://goo.gl/VutA4J

I definitely agree with +Paul Tassi's comment in that last article, however: "...it’s hugely important for the Switch to get off to a strong start, no matter what may happen down the line." Recent news from +IGN (https://goo.gl/EAOYy6) that Gamestop sold out of all pre-order units is a good sign for +Nintendo.
