In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Xbox Live Says "No, Thank You" To Possible PSN-Outage Advantage

I wrote a while back about Microsoft's PSN-outage comments and how I thought they were full of shit. Unfortunately, some individuals seemed only to read the headline, and then where they could reach me via e-mail. Thankfully, Microsoft Exec Dennis Durkin is doing my job for me and clarifying:

It's bad for the industry that this has happened to Sony. We don't wish that upon anybody and you've seen we've been actually pretty quiet on the subject because we don't want to appear to even be looking to be taking advantage of somebody else's situation like that. That's just not in our DNA.

Over time, all of the bets Microsoft is making are about cloud bets. We want customers to feel confident about the quality of the service they're getting, the security of the data that they have and the security of the private information that they have. As a company, you can look back 8, 9 years ago, when Bill Gates wrote his Trustworthy Computing Memo that basically said, "We need to change the way we architect our products and it has to be designed into the way we architect our products and services." So it's in our DNA, across the company.

I swear to God if I get called a fanboy of anything after I post this I'm going to post only about PC games from now on.

Haha, just kidding, I'll post everything.
