Microsoft turns to Zune for mobile game edge


xbox live subscription

I was able to play Halo 3 on XBOX Live over this past winter holiday, with my three sons (over 13, of course) and it was absolute fun! I will be getting an XBOX 360 soon, but likely by a PS3 just to get the Blu-Ray functionality. Most opinions I have read say that online gaming for PS3 is rather lame compared to XBOX Live.

Also, the XBOX live subscription is roughly $60 (US) per year, not $50/month.

(See http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/memberships/12month-premiumgold.htm)

Swearing at work 'good for business'


Swear Jar

Maybe it would be great incentive to set up a swear jar at work !!!


I hope you can see this outside the US.


Apple slashes iPhone prices


Whining ...

The market price is what a willing seller can sell to a willing buyer. Apple was willing to sell the iPhone for $599, and you were willing to buy it (and did so) at that price.

It's $200 bucks you were willing to pay to be an early adopter. Even the Razr was priced pretty outrageously when it first came out, and people were willing to pay that.

If you buy a car today, and the manufacturer offers a $1000 rebate six weeks later, do you feel the same way?
