exclusive footage of the xbox one production line
IF YOUR HEART DIDN’T SHATTER INTO A MILLION FRAGMENTS WHEN THAT LAST LINE WAS SAID YOU ARE NOT HUMAN.
I watched this the other week and i started crying my eyes out.
See. It’s not fair. They took Goofy, who even in GOOF TROOP was still just overly silly and meant for splapstick, and they give Goofy real world fatherhood problems. And to this DAY I will still mist up for this scene.

Final Fantasy VI, SNES.
The pod continued its slow rotation, to disclose an even stranger sight — a huge red sun, many times larger than the Moon as seen from Earth. Bowman could look straight into its face without discomfort; judging by its color, it was no hotter than a glowing coal. Here and there, set into the somber red, were rivers of bright yellow — incandescent Amazons, meandering for thousands of miles before they lost themselves in the deserts of this dying sun.
Dying? No — that was a wholly false impression, born of human experience and the emotions aroused by the hues of sunset, or the glow of fading embers. This was a star that had left behind the fiery extravagances of its youth, had raced through the violets and blues and greens of the spectrum in a few fleeting billions of years, and now had settled down to a peaceful maturity of unimaginable length. All that had gone before was not a thousandth of what was yet to come; the story of this star had barely begun.

Have a history teacher explain this if they can.
Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost a child while living in the White House.
Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.
Now it gets really weird.
Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln.
Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.
Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.
John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.
Now hang on to your seat.
Lincoln was shot at the theater named “Ford.”
Kennedy was shot in a car called “Lincoln” made by “Ford.”
Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.
And here’s the “kicker”:
A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.AND……………….:
Lincoln was shot in a theater and the assassin ran to a warehouse…
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and the assassin ran to a theater…
I saw this had to share just in case anyone did not know.
I WILL NEVER CEASE TO REBLOG THIS
Microsoft Exec: “If You have Zero Internet, [Xbox 360] is an Offline Device”
In an interview with GameTrailers.com, Don Mattrick, President of Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft, addressed the issue of the Xbox One’s online requirements. In the interview, Mattrick said that, “fortunately we have a product for people who aren’t able to get some form of [online] connectivity; it’s called Xbox 360.” He also went on to say that, “if you have zero access to the internet, that’s an offline device.”
Mattrick also shares in the interview an example of how, to Microsoft, people without internet truly were outliers of their targeted audience. He uses the story of a concerned gamer who lived on a nuclear submarine and was worried that he wouldn’t be able to play the new Xbox during the system’s initial backlash about the online requirements. Mattrick shrugged off the concern and the gamer as an unfortunate member of Microsoft’s audience and attempted to relate to the gamer by saying, “hey, I can empathize; if I was on a sub, I’d be disappointed.”
The video was recorded before Microsoft’s E3 Media Briefing on Monday morning, and before gamers seemed even further alienated by the Xbox One’s steep price tag of $499.
It seems as though Microsoft is in the middle of a PR nightmare. First, there was Microsoft Studios’ Creative Director telling gamers to “deal with it” in April, when rumors about an always-online console were at their peak before the Xbox One reveal. Then Microsoft couldn’t get the details of the Xbox One’s functionality straight after their reveal event last month. Yesterday, much of the gaming community seemed to be taken aback by the Xbox One’s price and further lack of relief regarding online functionality and used games restrictions. Last night, Sony went right after Microsoft’s missteps and announced a lower price point, guaranteed gamers’ ownership rights of purchased content, and cleared the air over any misconceptions about requiring an online connection. And now we have this, an eerie repeat of April’s “deal with it” scandal from an even higher source within Microsoft’s ranks.
Is Microsoft shooting themselves in the foot? Are they catering enough to their fans to garner a strong enough install base at launch? Sony got cocky last generation with the PS3 after the outstanding success of the Playstation 2, causing them to have a very slow start, and only catching up with Microsoft in the past couple of years. If Microsoft is repeating Sony’s mistake heading into this generation, will they be able to recover?
