In case you have been living under a rock, the XBox 360 has been released. I have one thing to say: Whooptie-freaking-doo. Yeah, I’d take one if it was offered to me, and I might even buy one down the road a bit, but, frankly I don’t see the attraction of standing in line for hours in the cold rain to maybe get a chance to buy one. But, it’s a game console. I can think of things I’d rather spend $399 on today.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I must admit that I attended the Mac OS X Tiger “release party” they had at the Indianapolis Apple Store. I went for a few reasons:
- The Wife suggested it I think she just wanted to go look at the Pottery Barn stores that are also in the Fashion Mall.
- I was a Mac newbie. I was still suffering from reality distortion field sickness caused by a recent Mac purchase.
- They were giving away free stuff.
At least I was inside and warm, only waited about 45 minutes, and there was no chance that I’d have to harm another human to get what I came for (But, I left empty handed. Another story for another day).
