... Also how long till MS Office gets ported to the XBox.
Microsoft isn't positioning the XBox as a game console or a PC but as a device that hooks up to your TV and gets to be a central fixture of your /home/. The tablet is portable, but it's not part of your home because it's not bound to it. The living room is, though. The TV is. The XBone is.
What they're doing actually makes SENSE. PCs aren't cool anymore but something that augments your TV is (even if it ultimately... is the same thing).
It's a (somewhat limited) PC that they're marketing as something better than a PC by marketing it as something DIFFERENT than a PC.
... This is the stupidest fucking thing and it could seriously work completely how they're intending.
