    in a sense it is like - pay us - and we will give you all the access google does - to everything - for free - legally.  or - just keep using google to get stuff - free - and wait for your comeuppance

     

    NO leadership on the issue

    re - xbox - 

     

    a box solely designed to illicit recurring payments should not cost 500 dollars

     YOUR BOTH WAYS APPROACH IS WHAT IS KILLING YOU (PLUS the nickel and dime attitude afterwords)

    it should be FREE - like the tablets of the future...sponsored by grocery chains or walmarts

    Make it exclusive - charge businesses to be "in it:" = cost to us - 0 

    devices are commodities... its software thats key... oh wait - now youre a devices company?

     

    fire everyone at ms!   in other news - so its ford guy or internal guy? go with internal guy

     

    (turn-around old guy car rock star vs - young butt kissing engineer.... sigh

     

    can there not be a john lasseter in the line up?  andy partridge...  im serial!

    edit - last years ipad will cost nothing in 5 years - and will be roll-upable  (Wal-Pad.... free on purchases over 200 or more - branded to walmart - with all their partners in it.  we pay nothing

     

    edit - ps - are businesses going to download and rip you off? nope.  would they pay to be in your products? yes.  Is the whole ecosystem already bent in your favor? yes - do you stand to make the most in your - UN-WALLED garden - yes.   wake up ms

    we just dumped our cable - and home phone - ... like the 40 thousand other rogers subscribers this month - oh ya ms bought 500 mil of them a long time ago - they also did the AWFUL explorer tv set top

     *edit - we are now using our cell phones as ...well phones... instead of mini gps computers.  no land line!

    anyway - once again i WOULD HAVE BOUGHT MS DEVICE - but it didnt exist

     

    there was no - 99 dollar (important - 99 dollar) ms box - to HELP you get free content

     

    google isnt perfect. it gets reined in.  it tries to screw over ALL media companies

     

    MS ONLY DOES STUIFF TO MAKE MONEY

     

    so - un-NOW

     

    the end of MS was billg calling bens a communist

     

    new ceo - read ms history please

     

    back to google play - it really is ridiculous... but you can tell it errors in YOUR favor - not the media companies. also to be fair - most of the nuttiness comes from the asus patented 3d UI ... so...lame.  it works - dont get me wrong - but steve jobs is rolling in his grave laughing

     

    edit - google does stuff to make money too - but it gets its money from business - and makes our stuff free. It creates the illusion that it is not evil. In this economy - ill take free,

     

    you cutting it up in commercials is a joke. it is the negative play. fire your ad company - and also fire who ever came up with " Honestly" campaign

    billg is rolling in his...oh wait

    dear new ceo:

     

    will you help us 

     

    _walled gardens are made to be broken out of - save TIME

    dont build them

    * in a week and a half it has worked great - but it once:

    - forgot to refresh a usb drive without re-setting

    and did lock up once - requiring a reboot

     

    i chalk that up to cutting edge.  where is MS's "sphere" that lets you get RID OF all ADs

     

    ?

     

     

  • asus cube google tv review by me

    it is not without wonder that i unpacked the - asus (google) cube

    so - are cubes stupid? (they've never sold before - steve) who cares.

    you turn it on - it works - its 99 bucks

    type american pickers full episodes and they all come up.
    type chopped   - same
    type dragons den  -same

    everything comes up and plays with NO commercials
    the UI is ridiculous - but it works

    the back of the remote is a qwerty keyboard
    thumbs up

  • Mazie is 9 at midnight

    ...that's all.  Just thinking of c9
