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

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
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
...that's all. Just thinking of c9
ps - bought an asus cube w/google tv (dumped cable) Love that the other side of the remote is a blackberry styled qwerty keyboard... food for thought
WOOF! WOOF! ...errr i mean HOWL! HOWL!
