The amount of hubris this guy and this company has is amazing! In a weird sort of way, you got to admire the pair he has for saying what he said in that direct manner, even repeating it. There it is folks. Direct from the horses mouth, no lame Twitter back and forth or leaked emails from developers.
Hey Microsoft, will my country's ISP's upgrade its network resources with the introduction of the Xbox One? I hope it does, i really hope it does and i will love you Microsoft for it.(which is never going to happen because my country is India).
According to the other news outlets, Microsoft also dumped on the Navy while making this statement. Not a good PR idea to dump on the troops. Really foolish of them, but I suppose this is to be expected from a company now associated with #dealwithit.
What an absolute train wreck Microsoft has become under Ballmer. First they fight their customers on the Windows Start button and then finally relent only to bring it back as a simple trigger for Metro - almost like a back-handed slap in the face for loyal customers. Now a SECOND spokesperson tells people to 'deal with it' to the point of suggesting that they don't upgrade if they can't take the requirements (or meet them for that matter - yeah, screw you farmboys!!!) My only explanation is that Ballmer has offered a prize to the first employee who can bury Microsoft the quickest and everyone is lining up to throw Bill's company into the shredder at lightning speed. A World Class Corporation, once the admiration of the World, reduced to this pathetic, unprofessional pig-headed disaster of a tech company that even children know enough to mock openly in the street...How anyone on that Board sleeps at night with that buffoon in charge is quite beyond me. The Shareholders need to act - NOW!
