Considering that I have had one removed three times on that exact same toe, call it wishful thinking that I did not entertain the possibility.

I was referring mostly to the commercials I've seen for Windows 8, Surface, and any Windows phone. I realize Windows 8 isn't actually a device, but again their message for it seems to be that it allows you to do whatever you want on any device that uses it.

Woo! Happy Birthday Agent!

I'm going in to get my toe looked at hopefully today. I have a giant gash along side one of my toenails that hasn't even tried to start healing in the last two weeks.

Very true, I had forgotten that campaign. But still, most companies with a bunch of devices that all do pretty much the same thing usually sell them with at least a few features that set each product apart from one another rather than bragging about how all their products are the same.

Look at Apple. Anyone can tell that an iPod Touch is just a weaker and cheaper iPad, but Apple's marketing team uses that fact to advertise both of them. Same with their phone line, regardless of how many tech blogs and experts tell consumers that the latest iPhone iteration isn't a significant upgrade from the previous one, Apple fans still line up in droves for every single version.

The last bit of that memo highlights the problem with Microsoft's message...

Around every corner I see them touting their new slogans along the lines of all their devices being capable of doing everything. So then, Microsoft, answer me this: If all your devices can do everything, why on Earth would I buy more than one of your devices?

My contribution would be any cutscene from Graces F where Sophie saves the day. Favorite one being the first half of the battle with Richard in Lhant at the end of Chapter 3... you know, before it went all DBZ for the second half.

Ah, my mistake. I thought Blitzball was fun enough as it was basically just water polo under the surface. Certainly ten times better than what they did with it in X-2.

Y'know, taking every opportunity available to insult a game or franchise even when it adds nothing to the discussion at hand seems kind of... cheap.

The PS3 actually *does* have the occasional advertisement, but usually it's for other Sony products and services and is very unobtrusive as it is with XBox 360.

Now that Don Mattrick as CEO of Zynga has been confirmed.... something foul is in the air. Zynga is many things, but they certainly aren't stupid. So why would they want the guy that basically destroyed customer confidence in the XBox name? Especially considering that Zynga themselves aren't very well loved by the gaming community.

The simplest explanation would be that Mattrick is bringing over some of his Microsoft money and is personally investing it in Zynga.

I think making the Kinect a mandatory accessory included in the box was purely a financial decision. I'm almost positive it's the only reason for the extra $100 on the price and at this point I think they're trying to make back some of the money they've put into the development of the darn thing.

I mean, Microsoft was teasing the concept of the Kinect not long after the 360 launched and gave us a tech demo at least twice a year until it was finally released. And then... yeah, didn't exactly perform well, but unlike Sony's Move, Microsoft must have put a small fortune into the technology and can't let it just go the way of the Zune.

Needed a break from RPG's after my Chrono Trigger gauntlet, so I put the Sly Collection back in my PS3. About 60% of the way through Sly 2 and I'm still having a really good time with it compared to the fun but ultimately uncreative first game. I love that the game manages to make stealth a fun approach that is almost never actually required.

^ I *really* hope they keep the Christmas theme from version 1.0, now *that* was a relaxing track.

You must be getting much better weather up there than down here. 'Cuz if someone wanted to go hiking yesterday for their birthday here, I would spare no time in telling them just how cray cray they were. Glad you enjoyed it, though. Happy wishes for the next year and whatnot.

Most EULAs contain that clause lately. Honestly I wish someone would get on their cases about it, because their presence just screams "Can they really do that?"
