Having bought an Xbox One quite literally days ago, I find the interface to be extremely confusing and the opposite of intuitive.

Ya I bought one not long ago as well and I found the grid just weird. Main screen shows the stuff you use a lot, left is your pinned stuff (and figuring how to pin something was confusing as well), and as far as I can tell the right two screens are just garbage ads, store, friends stuff that I never use.

Sort of feel like anything would be an improvement, although I do like how easy it is to go split with the TV.

I don't know this grid layout you speak of, but it sounds like a grid of large blocks (given that you can order(pin) them as you see fit) would be easier to navigate than anything else.

2. The New Xbox One Experience Launches In 10 Days Nov 3, 2015, 14:18 deqer
 
Microsoft has lacked the experience and talent to operate a business (like most businesses in the world) for more than 20 years now, and this example obviously proves it.

Blue's comment "Not used to the old new experience yet." is spot on. This comment applies to many things in life, and it's due to business greed that the business ignores this comment, due to greed (re-brand, re-release, and provide cover story (to the public) to hide behind).

On top of that -- if you didn't know, Microsoft's employees are not as experienced as you're lead to believe.

It's unfortunate, because you (the customer) end up paying the price for that, while Microsoft just gulps it up and moves on.

Sure, they made Windows. But that means nothing. Really.

Those voice audio files are saved and re-used millions of times. Every time that any one plays the game. That's a lot of use for the little $ that the company paid for it.

Unfortunately, this game won't succeed much because it's name has too many syllables.

The game just came out, and already there's an expansion? C'mon...

I understand you're in business to make business, but, at least try to pretend that your expansions have more meaning than just to make more money for yourselves.

Even if it was true, it's hard for me to get excited about a BF game these days.

Yah, no one likes getting into a game for it then to suddenly shutdown it's master server permanently. I mean, seriously, who does that? Oh yah, EA does. And Nintendo. And...

And then DCMA prevents homebrews from bringing it back to life.

I guess everyone really does need to read the EULA these days, and really take seriously that sentence "We have the right to cease service at any time, for any or no reason." -- they serious.

This isn't the Kings Quest that I remember. I prefer the classic pixel art style, and music. Although the intro/music to this youtube video was fairly nice.

If he wants to prove that in some way, good luck. But that's not how Kickstarter works.

He also doesn't say it's a Kickstarter system.

I'm not sure if I should give you the Jackie Chan "WTF.jpg" or the Ellen Ripley quote about IQs dropping sharply while I was away...

Tell ya what: I'm going to leave you a collection of dequer's greatest hits, and you can decide the wisdom of freakie deakie.

There's this.

And this.

And this.

And this right here.

This brilliant fucking gem.

A Deep Thought.

Another deep thought.

Yet another, on the topic of Star Citizen.

An important message to developers.

And another.

On the topic of reading.

But then chiding someone else for not reading.

More chiding.

Deep thoughts on blizzard.

More deep thoughts.

Oh wait, reading is bad again.

And that's just from the 5 most recent pages of deeqism. God knows how many brain cells died when he typed that. Please do not encourage him.

Why am I worth the effort you put into this post?

Wow, that final push. Congratulations.

I was keeping an eye on the last few hours. Something fishy was going on. A huge batch of pledges came in to get it over $600K, and then they started losing money as new pledges came in. It was like someone propped it up to get it over $600K, and then started reducing their pledge as other new pledges came in.

I mean we've seen crowdfunding pops before, but they made 20% of the required minimum in the last day, all to end at just %0.3 above the required minimum. It's all very unusual.
Sounds like there is a system in place, under the hood, that allows people to "donate while no one else is"

So, you have your two options:
1) Donate
2) Donate as reserve only.

When anyone else donates, it replaces those reserves -- so, the money from those reserves go back to their owners.

---

Certainly an effective way to ensure survival of a kickstarter campaign, if the amount funded so far is high enough and warrants usage of this type of donating system.
