Games More and more evidence is pointing towards the next Xbox requiring an always-on internet connection in order to play any games - i.e., once you lose your connection, you can't play any game at all. Three minutes after losing your connection, "your" game will suspend itself and stop playing. Microsoft's Adam Orth took to Twitter to defend this anti-consumer practice, but he did so in the most ungraceful of ways.

Well, some people may be even more fortunate than you, and and might enjoy vacations and weekends in houses or apartments in places probably more attractive than the one they usually live in.

It's great that you are happy always at home with your IP landline conversations and Net TV channels. But when I am in the beach for a few weeks I find it nice to break away from the waves and whip out the turbolaser for a shot or two. And I am not fortunate enough to be there enough time every year to justify a second internet bill.
