Did you even read the article? This is already asked and answered by Kickstarter itself:
The Veronica Mars and Zach Braff projects have brought tens of thousands of new people to Kickstarter. 63 percent of those people had never backed a project before. Thousands of them have since gone on to back other projects, with more than $400,000 pledged to 2,200 projects so far … Big projects, they argue, can have a halo effect on the rest of Kickstarter, drawing in new people and helping other creators.

The money was doubled each time the auction was canceled. Assuming the seed was a single 10,000,000 auction, it would only have to be done ~25 times. Much less if they figured out the exploit quicker and had more than that to start with.
1. Those are not budget products, just the “cheapest products Apple sells” which is not saying much if you look at the other non-Apple products in those same categories on the market. I’m not complaining – I own all of them – but you can be sure there are more budget-minded options if you shop elsewhere.
3. The Nexus 4 is $299 because Google is subsidizing itself, because it can profit off the personal data it collects from Android users. It’s the same reason Facebook will “always be free.” (Because they make their money through advertisements and selling your personal information) Any other modern Android phone from a third-party manufacturer has to sell for $499 or more off contract to be profitable.
I think the low-cost iPhone doesn’t make much sense, for a few reasons:
1. It doesn’t fit with Apple’s brand image. They rarely, if ever, cater to people on a budget.
2. If it existed, it would cannibalize – some, not all – iPhone sales. Think iPad mini to iPad. They admit it has done this, but it still keeps some people from buying a Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire.
3. They already keep three generations of the iPhone on sale at any given point in time, each with different price points, and each on the current version of iOS. iPhone 4 is now free on contract. Why reinvent the wheel, when the old wheel works just as good as a purposefully limited new one?

Wow, it’s exactly the same number of steps. Reading is fundamental. You should practice.

I find it very frustrating when I’m at a concert and instead of the artist I paid to see, there’s a sea of smartphones blocking my view of the concert. Glass will do well to eliminate this annoying trend.
Before someone calls me out for whining: Explain to me why you would pay $150 to watch a concert through a 4" LCD screen instead of just watching the damn concert? Real life is the highest definition, and it’s far more rewarding to have memories of an event, than memories of recording the event.
Scrolling through the list of all your installed apps that can handle pictures is a lot more work than just sending it from the app you were already using in the first place.

Every app that allows you to share a photo on iOS has precisely two steps to completion:
New Photo (opens camera while staying in the app) → Capture Photo
Camera Roll → Select Photo
I don’t know why people who don’t use this phone think they know how it operates.
