Re: F... Bill Gates...

Microsoft pays a lot of money in taxes and makes a big contribution to our GDP. I suppose they could just move their business to another country and then we'd get nothing.

With that in mind, I don't have a problem with our government treating them "special".

Re: F... Bill Gates...

I will say this, F Microsoft. Just got the red ring of death on my 2nd xbox 360. This one lasted about a year and a half, same as my first one. I guess that's the shelf life for these pieces of crap. Good thing I bought a replacement plan.

Re: F... Bill Gates...

Yeah I'm not worried about it getting fixed, it's just annoying that they put out such a piece of junk system.

I heard the unit needs to be well-ventilated, almost to the point of impracticality. You sure it's well ventilated?

what he aid was the richest needed all the govt help(i.e. tax breaks, and loans) because they were the main supplier of jobs. with more money in the right hands, the economy would grow. now that bill gates took advantage of it, some don't like it

I don't play video games and haven't since Nintendo 64 was the hot system, but I was thinking about dabbling again. I have a bunch of friends who are gamers. What is the red ring of death?

It's when your xbox won't start, and the LED ring around the center button (which is usually green) turns red.

And so that's it? Red ring = throw your Xbox away? Unreal.

I guess the positive spin on Microsoft sucking is just think of how many IT/tech jobs have been created due to Microsoft/Windows products being so clunky and inefficient.
