Looks like xbox 720 will require a constant always on internet connection to play any game even offline games. Darn, and I was kinda looking forward to the next Xbox.

Console rumors are crap, and hell, even many of the announcements turn out to be crap (Sony has a bad habit of claiming specs 2 years before release that they don't have on release day).  The specific rumor you're speaking of was also thrown around last (this?) generation, and it didn't happen then either.  Also, really, as next gen consoles aren't likely to change your current buying decisions much, just wait it out and see what happens.  

Just for some insight on what it takes to get your rumor published these days:

Every line of code in SharePoint was personally written by Satan.

Just sayin'.

Or Hitler.  Wait, wrong room.  I was looking for an argument (that is actually the Quotamations room these days).

That was my first thought, but I figured we'd keep the Hitler talk in Godwin's Lounge. You're not incorrect, though.

Q: How do you tell when SharePoint was the wrong choice for a project?

A: If SharePoint was chosen at all, you made the wrong choice.

Not if your other choice is the product named after a chinese flower that I can't actually name if I want to keep my job.....

I have yet to see a sharepoint installation that does anything that couldn't be accomplished with a wiki or a blog. Yes I know it does more than that but 99.999% of the people who install it don't take advantage of its "we need a notes-alike" functionality.

Most of the time someone tries it out and then dumps a bunch of documents into it and then they're stuck with it.

The conventional wisdom was "no one gets fired for choosing IBM" which eventually turned into "no one gets fired for choosing micro$oft." I think the new mantra should be "choosing micro$oft is grounds for immediate assassination."

I think it is cute when people use the dollar sign for the letter 'S' in
Microsoft. It is almost as if they it is habit, shouldn't you rename
this room with a dollar sign instead of the letter 'S'?

We would, but some people still access this room using Windoze, which crashes when it encounters a room name with a dollar sign with it. It also crashes when using any program on odd or even numbered days.

On office 2013 if your computer dies or you decide to upgrade to a new computer you have to buy a new office license. I would think this would discourage people from upgrading their hardware. It's more crap like this that makes rumors such as the Xbox internet always on drm protection scheme all the more believable.

I found my copy of Office 2003 the other day, it wasn't with my usual discs. I thought about installing it on
my mother's Windows 7 machine and then I realized the software is ten years old. Not that it has changed much
and my mother probably wouldn't use any changes but I wondered if some strange problem would develop.
She has whatever the basic Microsoft office product is, I would install open office but I wonder about odd
problems that might come up.

Wouldn't worry about it too much, Zooer.  Half my company is still using 2003 as they won't allow us to upgrade.

I believe in the if it works why change it theory. If my mom is happy the way things are leave it alone. After
ten years I am sure Microsoft isn't supporting it anymore and any software updates that were needed are no
longer available. I bleive there was an important update after I purchased it. On a related note without the
updates it means the swastika is still in one of the WingDing fonts.

I bloody hate computer locked licencing, and I have no clue why it's still around.  I have too many computers and make too many upgrades to tolerate it if I don't really have to (and I can't recall a case that I did).

I think it's cute that there are still people who are so stuck in the 20th century that they use software whose licenses require that you pay for it.

If you think it is cute than why do you spell Microsoft with a "$"? That seems angry, iF you thought it was
cute you would spell it with the "cute" Unicode smile face: Micr☺ s☺ ft.

(Not sure if those will print after I save)
