Well said. The expression, 'Nutty Professors' exists for a reason but the name of a hypothetical camera is hardly a scientific question .

Hardly a scientific question this but then I could be wrong!

To be more specific, it'll be announced on 4/14/2014

At 4:14:14? Will the 4 news release (press conference, web cast, web blog and facebook) be 4:14 long?

But the refusal to even engage in speculative thought about such things carries the same lack of intellectual curiosity, IMO. At the very least... it's no fun to go through life that way!

By the way, Lloyd George was talking about answering hypothetical questions in the realm of politics, which can often be quite foolish since your opponent can use your answer against you.  Not really the case here - I hope!

Thinking of a name for a hypothetical camera is fun! Not my idea of fun.

I was thinking more along the lines of answering hypothetical questions in general.

Human 1, at a party:  "What would you do if you won the lottery?"

Human 2:  "I refuse to answer a hypothetical question on the grounds that it may waste precious thought cycles that could be better spent working within the framework of objective reality.  As a famous politician once implied, that would make me a fool."

Human 1:  "...  'scuze me, I need to grab a drink..."

That said, unless Ricoh comes up with something funky, we're discussing permutations of M, K, Z, D, L, and then maybe a numeric.  You might be right after all.

Then let those who do have their fun.  No one is forcing you to do this.   I tend to agree with you that it's futile but if people want to do it.  Have at it.
