OMG, have you guys been reading the reports of widespread XBOX 360 crashes? http://www.xbox-scene.com/xbox1data/sep/EEFkZkkkyEHasmrPqu.php The hopeless MS apologists at C|Net have even declared the honeymoon over for the 360 http://news.com.com/2060-11199_3-0.html?tag=nefd.aof ... and rumors of recalls are circulating. http://www.techimo.com/forum/t157004.html It's not surprising that this has happened -- MS is not a hardware company. In their hubris to beat Sony to market, they brought out a machine that wasn't fully tested. After the three year overdue fiasco that is Longhorn/Vista, MS needed a quick-to-market victory in the console market. But unless they quell these PR fires fast, they may lose the release date advantage, giving Sony an opportunity to kill the XBOX for good in 2006. This is a time for Apple to think big and get aggressive. MS is a company in deep trouble. Google, Linux, Sony and Apple are all nibbling away at them ... the time may be ripe for a frontal assault.
