I ditched my TV about 6 months ago. The majority of shows I want are available on the 'net, one way or another. I'm not dictated to by licences, adverts or broadcast schedules.
... the other day. For those of you that don't want to click through, it's about finding the right mix of alcohol, sleep and energy levels, all in search of hitting that sweet spot.
I think they've missed their mark. Chances are that some people will tune in to see it, but I reckon more people will just catch the clips on YouTube etc, or torrent the episode and watch it in their own time. Of course, I have nothing to back this theory up.
because according to TV, I should have had my first flying car 10 years ago. DAMMIT! I WANT MY FLYING CAR!
This has been covered a couple of times over at the GamerCastNetowrk. I think that MicroSoft are actually doing the clever thing. If you want to go all out and get the new model, the HD-DVD drive, the wireless adapter in one go, you can, and it will cost you more. Likewise, if you already own a 360, be it core or premium, then you can also upgrade that. The fact is, nobody is forcing you to have these extras. The other benefit is that it you're on a budget, then you can buy these in chunks. I can afford £245 (although no doubt we here in the UK will get stiffed on that again), I can't afford £425. In a month or two's time I'll be able to afford the HD DVD drive. I would still rather see one model of each, like Nintendo has done with Wii.
