Microsoft: 'Xbox One Would Be Great for Small Businesses'.. Except Not.

Microsoft suggested that their new next generation console would be a great addition to small businesses. Microsoft argues that their console would be a better replacement for a computer with a webcam because people would be able to easily connect the Xbox to their conference room TV’s and would have a high quality webcam right out of the box. Moreover, they also suggest that their console would be great for showing videos, pictures, and documents via their SkyDrive and Office Web applications.

Really Microsoft? I don't think so...

The story is too old to be commented.

"They argue that their console would be a better replacement for a computer with a webcam because people would be able to easily connect the Xbox to their conference room TV’s and would have a high quality webcam right out of the box."

Or, you know, you could buy a much cheaper PC/laptop that can do all those things and more but without a Gold subscription.

Honestly, this is getting ridiculous now. Whoever was in charge of initiating this piece of PR at Microsoft should be immediately fired.

I said the same thing when the PR was released for the PS3 being used to cure cancer and Alzheimer's..lol

Sure, that is quite the hyperbole but essentially it was working towards a cure, maybe in a small, insignificant way. So it's not entirely false although pretty ludicrous.

What MS are doing is saying screw all the other cheaper, better, more advanced options. Buy our $500 machine + ongoing subscription instead.

There's absolutely no reasonable sense to it.

Folding at home used computation from PS3's across the world to contribute to map proteins and such.
That was research related to curing Cancer and Alzheimers. It wasn't some exclusive feature, PC did it too.

Do you not think it's good to lend some of your electricity for the greater good? My BF had our PS3 doing that stuff all the time. Maybe thats why ours died an untimely, but temporary death.:P

"We shall begin our hostile takeover of Microsoft in 48 hours. We must buy all of their stock and use the momentum to garner public support and replace all board members with our own."

"Yes master. I will prepare the funds. What will our first target be?"

"It is the Xbox division! Let it be!"

"Yes maste- what?! What are you doing?! NOOOO!"
*gunfire*

"The government has a search and tap warrant and you are all under arrest. Thanks Microsoft!"
*thumbs up*
