This is definitely worth inclusion in OSVDB in my eyes. If we can't draw 
the line today, we will be able to in a year or years from now. At some 
point, the blur between computing device and household appliance will be 
too hard to distinguish. Rather than waste too much time arguing that 
line, why not put in a few now that are a bit primitive, but will surely 
show historic value if nothing else.
