Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

So why is the Switch the first Pocketconsole?

I would say because it's the first to seamlessly offer the option of portable or console play out of the box.

I'm pretty sure all other handhelds that had the ability to play on a TV first needed a revision or add-on to allow it and most of those came a few years down the road.

Hybrid: A x B -> C

Switch = A or B

Cars may have confused you but they're not hybrids either. It's just a marketing term.

You're a hybrid of your parents, yes? That's not the same as being able to switch between your maternal and paternal traits at will.

Hybrid = She Hulk, Switch = Bruce Banner OR the Incredible Hulk.

This can be confusing for small brained people who are easily tricked by marketing experts.

Now that I put more effort into thinking about it, "pocketconsole" would be accurate. Your definitely promoting the wrong hook though.
