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...


Xbox One Will Do “Nothing” Without Mandatory Day One Update

"A lot of the apps come with the day one update because they wouldn't have even been done," he continued. "You're gonna need to take this update. It's not gonna be really an optional thing. Functionally, you will be able to do very little without taking the day one update."

It's a real shame consoles aren't the simple plug in and play machines of yesteryear. Oh well, that's just the price one must pay for evolving technology, I guess.
