Don't get me wrong, the 360 has many fun games and is well worth the money. Just keep the mindset that your xbox will eventually fail (eventually) when you buy one.
Pissed off at the boss, need to vent? A bit of Gears of War will do the trick.
Not to bum on your parade, but I get more pissed when playing Gears of War because of the horrible lag/netcode.
...(MCPS in UK for example)
To be technically correct, MCPS changed their name after merging with PRS to "PRS for music" http://www.mcps-prs-alliance.co.uk/
The problem was that the phone had some real glaring problems that were never resolved. Such as a one day battery life.
This was fixed in a patch. The battery life was due to the phone not being able to suspend/resume properly so the phone was "on" all the time.
And the inability to charge the phone after the battery wore out completely.
Again patched a while back so that you can charge the phone using a usb cable/the open moko wall charger (because the openmoko wall charger has more current running compared to other wall chargers). To be correct, the phone was unable to charge "with the usb cable" but is able to be charged with the wall charger.
I was going to be first in line to buy one when the power management problems were sorted out. But years later... they were still there.
Yes this is true. The phone was not usable as a daily phone until this was patched (back in november 08 afaik). I use it as my daily phone now (just no bluetooth on the FSO stack).
I'm really saddened that the phone never truly got the support it needed to succeed.
So where does that leave us for free phones?
Indeed. I own one of these and put the FSO software stack and anxiously waiting for updates. Hopefully development will continue on these alternate software stacks since its a great piece of hardware that seems to suck because of a non mature software running on it. Koolou is working on an android port (its usable except no volume control afaik).

Man: My Margaret what a sub-par ham.
Margaret: Perhaps I can't bake a ham, but what I can cook up is a little grace and civility at the table.
Man: Did you know your mother is a whore?
