Missives from the Digital Front…#XboxLive, y’er #KillingMe

DECEMBER 22, 2012

Dear #XboxLive:

Today, y’er #KillingMe with your #XboxLive Service. I went to watch #ESPN3 on #XboxLive, but had to perform #28Steps or so first to #GetItToWork before I got #FAIL!

#NumberOfClicks

1. Go to #XboxLive Home Screen

2. Pick #MyPins

3. Pick #ESPN3

4. #UpdateNeeded. #REALLY? #AGAIN? Pick update and store to hard drive

5. Wait for download. #ReallyAnnoyed. Installed. Pick #Live Events.

6. Pick category. #Basketball.

7. Pick category. #NCAABasketball

8. Pick category. #Mens

9. Pick category. #ACC

10. Pick game. #BCvsPC

Enjoy game? #FAIL. #TechnicalDifficulties. #SCREAMatTV

Open request. If #Microsoft wants to offer another TV service beyond what they have offered historically (#WebTV) (#Owch) and improve on #XboxLive (#PainfulToday) and get consumers to shut off their satellite or cable TV box in the future for a Microsoft-branded product/service, work has to be done. #SOON

If a new service is #2013Guess?, then the #ClockIsTicking. Plus, #AppleTVisComing.

BTW, since I started typing this, the #BCvsPC feed? #Frozen. #IsTheGameOver??

If so, #IMissedIt

Best regards-
