Is Innovation the Most Abused Word In Business?

xmorg Re:It is abused but I think this sets too high a b (287 comments)

making a cell phone sized computer, and then locking it up so tight it barley resembles a computer and the user who pays for it barely owns it is hardly innovation...or is it? Depends on the goal.

Should Next-Gen Game Consoles Be Upgradeable?

xmorg Of course no. (348 comments)

It doesn't even make sense. Consoles are for idiots.(or little kids) Idiots don't upgrade, they buy new consoles. IF you are 13 years old, all of your friends will laugh you into deep depression if you had an upgraded ps3 and not a ps4.

Xbox 720 Might Reject Used Games

xmorg Re:Bull (543 comments)

You underestimate the power of marketing
when a new console comes out, millions of dunderheads rush to buy it, and although may complain about this or that they end up living with it, EVEN if its a massive step back in owner privacy/rights/usability. The shiny new graphics are usually enough to get people to buy it, and forsake their old. The commercials, newsmedia, yea, the culture itself will offer you a choice, which will you buy, the wIII, the Ps4 or the 720????

Within weeks of the new system coming out, teens will forsake the 360 like yesterdays news. My little cousins right now would have to be pretty bored to play a ps2. They will just accept that you can no longer bring a game over to your friends house, they will just bring the whole system. Gamestop will find another way of making money...
