So yesterday we bought an XBOX 360. We are not big gamers, but thought the kinect would be fun, along with some other XBOX Gaming. One other main reason we wanted it was for easy video streaming of Netflix in higher quality than our Wii can offer. We were also hoping to watch some network television from the various network websites.
Boy were we mistaken. The main thing we wanted was to watch shows from network websites and stream Netflix. The XBOX 360 can do only one of these two things, and that is at a cost.
We already pay $7 a month to Netflix, but in order for it to work XBOX and Microsoft require a GOLD member ship at a cost of $8 a month. Wait what? That is like me paying DELL a fee to allow Netflix to work on my purchased laptop! This is gouging at its best! You really require the GOLD membership to do just about everything! Can’t even view YouTube without it! This is a joke.
To top it off, there is no web browser either! Really?? Even the Wii has one!
I REFUSE to pay Microsoft a monthly fee to do things I can do for free on ALL my other devices. The XBOX was packed up and returned to the store. I will never buy an XBOX again unless things change significantly into the future.
Here is Barack Obama roasting Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
I have to say that when the next presidential election comes up, I hope Obama gets re-elected – nice to see someone in power who not only has a good sense of humor, but also can string a proper sentence together…
You might remember Morgan Spurlock from the documentary Super Size Me that was released a few years ago. Well, his latest documentary, “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold”, is all about branding & product placement. It looks to be worth watching.
He recently appeared as a TED speaker, discussing his latest movie. Definitely a very entertaining talk. Check it out, then take a look at the trailer for his latest film.

I don’t know. I think a big earthquake here in North America is Imminent… not so sure about in the next few weeks. But Jim Berkland, who successfully predicted the 1989 California quake days before it happened, says its going to happen again, and before the end of the month.
What he says sounds credible, but who knows. Make your own judgment about this. Here is the video from *cough* Fox News.
