commented on The City Council Is Trying to Kill Pedestrians
How many pedestrians are killed in this way? In many parts of the world, there are no sidewalks and drivers just drive around pedestrians walking along the side of the road. It doesn't seem to be a problem there, so why is it such a problem here? As long as people don't get ticketed for walking on the side of the road, I don't think we should be investing that much time in this.

@9, You can make any interview come out to be what you want it to be. That's why there's such a thing as a hit piece or a fluff piece. There's no such thing as an accurate or not accurate characterization, since it's all based in opinion. You think the characterization was "accurate" because you happen to agree with Dom. It's allowed that some others feel differently.

commented on Microsoft Resets Xbox to One
"The end of _______ gaming" is a regular feature in gaming publications. Game journalists have little imagination when it comes to change, so they perceive every shift of current as the complete end of things. This year we talk about the end of console gaming again, next year we talk about the end of PC gaming again. Who knows, maybe the year after it'll be the end of mobile gaming. Gaming's forever dying and yet it's still here, making lots of people lots of money.
Even if the console becomes an entertainment hub device (much like it already is), it will never stop playing games.
The new XBOX is boring and not forward-thinking at all, but the nice thing is, the OS can be updated eventually to include things people want on it. Microsoft's good at playing catch-up, after all.
