Microsoft bought Xbox because it was successful? What? Microsoft developed it from the start.

Der. I guess I was thinking of Bungie. I woke up at four in the morning and couldn't go back to sleep. NO SLEEP.

Microsoft has moves like Jagger? No wonder they're so hip and cutting edge. This will play well with the soft-rock crowd. I don't understand why Microsoft chooses to market to the 40-ups. It's a losing strategy to make life-style products dressed in mom-jeans.

I'm getting fed up with Explorer. Firefox is sleaker and easier. So, there!

No one, but no one, is ever going to want to read any kind of text on a device that's twelve feet away.

WOW living life on one's sofa watching TV endlessly. It's just like Ferenheit 451.

@5 WoW is kind of nice on a 42 inch HDTV about that distance.

@2: Microsoft bought Bungie long before they were anywhere near the wildly successful juggernaut of their Halo era. In fact, it could be argued that they were only able to become so successful due to the massive support of MS behind their Halo:CE/Halo 2 projects.

@7, you are an insufferable dipshit. I have ingrown hairs on my ass that I like better than you.

I've tried turning on Microsoft Live for about two years now... to no success (I suck at this I guess). Getting hold of any form of support is just impossible. I think I'll pass...

My wisepunk, what a lovely picture you paint with your words. May I ask what you use instead?

Microsoft trying to fill a void nobody has is always good for a laugh. Did you ever wish you could check your stocks on your coffeemaker? Well now you can! Does your TV remote only utilize one of your hands? Problem solved! Does it bother you that you can't make phone calls from your word processor? Hot damn, check this out!
