It all goes by the wayside if your first experience with a game is crashing servers. Skylines didn't have that problem - even if some of it was a bit cryptic it got straight to the fun.
Skylines did so well because it focused specifically on player experience and fun rather than methods to maximize how much they can siphon out of your wallet. If you don't own it yet, but like city builders, you're missing out.
Every kid who has ever played a video game decides they want a career making video games. Unfortunately the first time they have to do any serious work (read: learning the basics of programming) they stop trying.
Playing games preps you for a career in programming as much as driving a car preps you for being a mechanic.
Yes, it absolutely does need to be asked, because there's a strong bias here against Microsoft in general. As for your "technology is the downfall of the next generation" speech, that's just fucking ridiculous. I'm sure your grandfather felt the same way watching you plugged in to your massive walkman that got about three hours of battery life on 4 AAs. There's significant irony in it all because, well, you're here instead of being off somewhere in the wilderness shunning all the technology and science that made your life so much better than the lives of the generation that came before you.
As someone in his early 40s, I say bring on the tech. I absolutely want to see how far it goes before I shuffle off this mortal coil. Fuck the luddites like you that can't see the writing on the wall.
No, you'd wind up in the same place because north always heads toward the pole. It doesn't matter how far you travel west or east, if you travel the same distance north as you did south from the pole, you'll wind up at the pole.
You need to ask yourself: would your opinion change if the suggested technology was all based on linux and open source software?
Do you disagree with it on the premise that you disagree with the fundamentals of it, or do you disagree with it because it's someone from Microsoft making the assertion?
By the time they get their asses in gear to ban botters, the damage is already done. It takes months - sometimes years for Blizzard to actually take action. Even when the person botting is obvious and blatant.
I'm all for clicky keyboards, but when your keyboard is priced at nearly $600 you can guarantee it's going to fail. No qwerty keyboard on the planet is worth $600.
Seriously, people get pissed when you:
1) don't get what they paid for
2) get lied to
3) have to put up with clueless cue-card-reading tech support
4) have to wait inordinately long periods of time to talk to someone
Want happier customers? Don't fuck them around. If mistakes are made, own up to it and make it right. Above all, train your staff well so they actually understand what they're supporting.
You're assuming the problem is genetic in nature instead of a learned behaviour. In cases like this it doesn't matter if the genes are passed on or not. They're not a factor.
If this had a cell reciever/transmitter I'd be sold. Of course, it'd then be $400 for no apparently logical reason.
Hacking the Keurig is as easy as Hollywood style bomb defusing. You open it and literally cut the green wire. It takes less than 5 minutes and removes all restrictions.

I don't get why the Pope is even relevant to the conversation. The Vatican has absolutely no power to implement policy in these matters, their opinions on the issue - good or bad - shouldn't have any sway on anything.
This is what happens when you take an operating system that is meant to be used with a touch screen, and try to shoehorn in traditional gaming support. You wind up with a mediocre product. Couple that with the fact that you wind up having to rebuy all the android games you have which would work with it and it's no surprise that people said "thanks, but no thanks". The nvidia shield was a better idea because it accommodates both spaces at the same time.
