I enjoy the Xbox, but I don't

I enjoy the Xbox, but I don't have Kinnect. (Interesting name, a play on kin and connect. lol) The Xbox games I have are adventure, real time strategy and compilations of old games and board games. Oh, yeah, I have a fun tennis game, Virtua Tennis 2009, which I bought new for cheap.

About Microsoft being mediocre. I can't say, really, because I don't own a PS3 or Wii, two systems close to the Xbox in game mechanics, in game play. Something funny, though, is I own a few Wii games AND Game Cube games even though I don't own a Cube, lol. (Zelda, Four Swords! I had to buy it when I saw it in 2006, LOL! Not a fan of the polygon or first person Zelda games.) I bought the Cube games years ago because I figured I'd buy a Cube eventually, but I won't. I'll buy a Wii, but not until its price falls to $100 at most. I'm patient. In fact, one game I bought at the time I bought Zelda Four Swords is Paper Mario which was in its factory wrap until two weeks ago. See. Patience. lol.

I'll say this about Micro's mediocrity if it is mediocre, I'm glad it is. I'll get serious here, Michael: If Micro's mediocre, I bet it's deliberate. I say that because I have a feeling video games, now an industry (a word I dislike because industry originated from concoction, from centralization economically therefore socially), now are tools to warp people. As well, I believe technology is far more advanced than what the average person knows, video game technology no exception.

I'd have no problem with technology if it occurred in freedom all these decades, maybe since America's founding, but it hasn't come to fruition in freedom. Which gets me thinking about History Channel's four-part series The Men Who Built America, having aired in November and December and still what might be watched on HC's website. Cool series lead-in song, too. Gritty, down to business, hard.

In its third part and just once in the series and in passing was the name of names. I couldn't believe it was said, but believe me, I consider its utterance huge, a gigantic signal. A signal that all along the "conspiracy theorists" have been right. Also gigantic because among the people interviewed for that documentary was U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller who said, I just don't agree how my grandfather attained his wealth. Wow. If I'm not mistaken, there is a Rockefeller someway involved in History Channel, and there is one who sits on PBS' board and, I think, one who does something to NPR. Oh, yes, that's right, the name of names? Rothschild. Lord Rothschild, to be precise, Lord a title in England's House of Lords and similar to our senators in the senate house.

Julius Pierpont Morgan (a relative of Piers Morgan?), son of Junius Pierpont Morgan, walked out of the shadow into the light after he uttered the name Rothschild then explained to Thomas Edison, who Morgan funded, My father didn't take his (read: Rothschild's) advice: buy when there's blood in the streets -- alluding to the instrument used to build America and is the passage through which massive money flows from country to country, the stock market, putting casinos in their proper places, insignificance.

So, returning to claims about Microsoft being mediocre, I'm all for it being mediocre (sounds funny!) and I'm happy people have hacked into the Xbox and Kinnect. I wouldn't doubt Gates knows Xbox and its accessories are hackable. In fact, I bet they were designed that way. It reminds me of what someone told me about the first Xbox, the black one. It could be modified to download hundreds of Nintendo and Sega games whose game play mimicked the original games or played with barely noticeable imperfections. I was close to buying the first Xbox and paying $30 for a few hundred games. But the timing wasn't right, I had to move.

The holodeck. (Star Trek, anyone?) Arrrgh. More mind warping. Yeah, I know, I know: ABBA, you're overboard. But I got to say, when it comes to certain things, I consider trends and their conclusions. To ignore them in a consolidating world that if it decentralizes will be false unless certain things happen would be folly. So, I support Microsoft patenting this technology because the private source is where to point to if its technology goes wrong, making it less difficult to right the wrong than if there was no privitization. This explanation isn't to say I support modern day's privitization. I recognize today's privitization isn't how it would be if man had been free in this country since its "civilized" conception.

As for Apple, I support it guarding its work and I would find it burdensome for the person not employed at Apple (or any place, for that matter) to judge Apple (or any place in question) on anything other than its products. In effect, whoever would have say-so about Apple without Apple employing him would be a slave to Apple; this relationship, the tying of the public to certain entities, is a problem and, without more thought, leads me to believe this relationship is how corporations and other entities will be in the future, solidifying them to eternity.
