Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse.
is this a joke because i’m not laughing at all
I thought to myself when I saw this, “no. This has to be some one being silly. This has to be something some one fabricated to make microsoft look worse and people just aren’t checking the source.”
AND IT GOT WORSE:
remember when the basic fucking concept of a commodity was that buying something meant it was yours
I want everyone to think long and hard on this information.
This means that you are not buying your games. You are paying 60+ dollars to rent the games from Microsoft, and they can take their game back whenever they feel like it.
You will not own your game. You will not own your console. Essentially, Microsoft is saying “We can disable your games and cut you off from accessing your console whenever we choose to.” Because a ban that locks your XBox Live account means that you will be locked out from all non-game functionality of the system, and by revoking your ‘licenses’ on all your games associated with your account, they can then disable each and every game you own for the system. Leaving you with a five hundred dollar cable receiver. Or, in the case of most users of the console, a five hundred dollar paperweight.
All because you accidentally walked into some online glitch and the rest of the players rage-report you for cheating.
This is unacceptable. Buy any console but an XBox One. Do not support Microsoft’s sudden belief that they own everything despite our purchase of it, and we have to prove we’re worthy of being shared with by paying exorbitant fees and jumping through constant hoops and hoping someone doesn’t report us for cheating because we made them mad in an online game.
Tell Microsoft ‘No,’ and do not give them your hard-earned money for what amounts to a video game subscription service with a $500 starting fee and $60+ dollar purchases.
There are way too many people that get banned unfairly. This is bullshit. I let my nephew play on my live account once when he was little, and I got a lot of people reporting me just because he was playing like a five year old. So. Cool.
I read all this but I don’t think it was mentioned so just in case:
You can’t argue with Microsoft once your account has been banned. Once your banned, that’s it. You’re done. You can’t appeal to anyone at Microsoft to get your account un-banned. This resulted in an influx of people selling their 360’s on places like Craigslist for really cheap because they could no longer connect to the internet.
Because, again, you can’t just disconnect your account on your 360 and re-sign up with a different account. Once an account has been banned on your 360 then you can no longer connect to the internet on that 360. So people were selling their counsels online to people who didn’t care if they connected to the internet or not.
And basically Microsoft is fucking awful.
Good god what even

Peer into a Simulated Black Hole
The folks at NASA put together this awesome supercomputer simulation of the inner regions surrounding a black hole.
Stellar gas is accelerated to near-light-speed thanks to the incredible draw of the black hole’s gravity. You know how a hot iron bar will glow red? That’s emission in the visible and infrared regions of light. Gas surrounding a black hole gets so hot that it emits light with MUCH higher energy: X-rays!
Near the center, the event horizon marks where nothing, not even x-rays, can escape the pull of gravity. That’s the dark disk in the center.
I think this is about as close as I ever want to get to a black hole.
