Microsoft HomeStation - Son Of XBox Revealed

brendan.b Big Brother Revisited (181 comments)

Is it just me or does anyone else have doubts about a society that would allow one company to dictate our computing needs (work, games, home automation etc) to such an extent. If Microsoft are going ahead with this idea, they should make the hardware/software more open to allow competitors and user choice.

I guess I'm not surprised that Microsoft would do this, but I do wonder at the logic. Do they really think that people would be willing to have all computing functions (hardware/software/comms) controlled by a single company.......
