Microsoft Bart Eppenauer, Microsoft's chief patent guy, in an interview with The Verge: "We believe our patent laws have served the country very well." Loosely translated, this reads: "This system that gives me my six-figure income and is a fine anti-competitive tool for my company have served me and my company well, the damage to the industry be damned."

Play PC games. Boycott Xbox.


Uhuh, and what operating system will you be playing PC games on?

* I love people and their Whack-a-Mole problem solving skills. The older guys in my office use the term "bubble in the carpet". It is a feature of any oversimplistic solution.

And so you buy games from Valve/Steam.

A company that must make games for Windows because it would be stupid to limit themselves to just one market while another big one is there to be exploited.
