    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco is still settling into his new surroundings in New England, and he's taking an unusual approach to his living situation.

    "I'm going to do something different, I'm actually going to stay with a fan for the first two, three weeks of the season," he said Tuesday. "That should be fun, until I get myself acclimated and learn my way around."

    Ochocinco hasn't yet picked the fan.

    "I'm not sure how it's going to work, but they have to have Internet and have to have Xbox," he said. "That's about it."

    If MSFT could somehow translate the xbox success into WP7...or maybe squeeze the functionality of a 360 into the phone form factor, they might crush the iDiots and Droods.

    The Xbox is a success... but is it a success because of its own merits, or simply because "it isn't Sony"?

    It's a good platform, certainly; but then so was the Dreamcast, and look at what happened to Sega. Nintendo showed the world how to be innovative in what was thought to be a stale industry and they've been the most profitable gaming console manufacturer in recent memory. Kinect was good, but still a reactionary response to Nintendo.

    @W3bbo:The XBox is a success in spite of the inevitable 'foot shooting' that MSFT is famous for.  Remember the red ring of death Smiley  I'd say it is successful because it works reasonably well in the MSFT ecosystem (a la media center extenders).

    It's odd, but some of the best hardware that I've used in the last decade or so has been from MSFT; a software company.
