soylent.jpgFarhad Manjoo of the New York Times argues that Soylent, a drink mix that claims it can replace all nutrients in food, is missing a crucial ingredient, "delight." Quote: "It may offer complete nourishment, but only at the expense of the aesthetic and emotional pleasures many of us crave in food." Lee Hutchinson of Ars Technica points out, however, that pleasurable healthy meals are a luxury not everyone has and people shouldn't be so quick to dismiss Soylent. [NYT, Ars][Photo]
