Microsoft Executive Adam Orth Tweets About An Always-On Games Console

5 April 2013

CNET:

“Sorry, I don’t get the drama around having an ‘always on’ console. Every device is now ‘always on’,” Orth wrote. “That’s the world we live in. #dealwithit”

When Mass Effect designer Manveer Heir said, “You’ve lived in LA, SF, Seattle… very connected places. Try living in Janesville, WI or Blacksburg, VA [small rural towns in the US],” Orth replied, “Why on earth would I live there?” Well, quite.

I agree with his premise, but his snobbish tone incenses me.
