Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

I had this exchange today in my e-mail (I've changed the names to protect those involved.):

Normally, I would start an email like this extremely professionally....but in this case:

Are you fucking serious?!

Number one: You can ABSOLUTELY remove your credit card from Xbox Live. I've removed four personally, and helped point three people in the right direction.

Number two: You first "hack" example was actually a hack on Infinity Ward's servers...not XBL. That same hack affected PSN users as well.

Number three: Your other "hack" example is a GLITCH. If you never took your game online, never even plugged an ethernet cable into your console of choice, that glitch existed.

Do you even know what a "hack" is? Do you have ANY journalistic integrity whatsoever?

And finally, just like every other idiot in the industry claiming that "no network is ever completely secure": Reuters, a MAJOR security firm went on record both BEFORE and AFTER the attack on PSN claiming that the holes in Sony's firewall were so big you could drive a truck through them. They have further added that after analyzing Sony's NEW network, it's still "cheap" and "unsecure".

Do some fucking research. People like you make other gaming journalists look bad. You have clearly done no work whatsoever, as you are a Sony fanboy that simply can't accept that his company screwed him. XBL hasn't ever been hacked. EVER. Will it ever? Who knows, but to date, their security has been up to snuff, unlike Sony's.

I'm sure I won't get a response from this, as you just got all of your credibility destroyed, but I'd love to hear your "fanboy" responses to my actual facts.

Sincerely,
'Buttmunch'

Here's the official Game Revolution response:

Dear Buttmunch,
Reuters is a fucking news outlet you moron. Goddamit, you're stupid.

If you have a question for Game Revolution, or just for me, and think it'd best answered in front of all your peers and the internet at large, please drop a line to daniel[AT]gamerevolution[DOT]com. Any funny spam will do.
