You might try to take your own advice. The post I was responding to was borderline trolling and this one is little better.Terminate421 said:Before you post make sure you don't act rude. It's unprofessional and bound to get replies like this.
This doesn't make any sense, unless it's a failed attempt to be ironic. My point was that there are devices that do the job better and don't cost an extra $60/year for no good reason.Besides, if you have Netflix and an Xbox, I would assume you'd BE USING YOUR COMPUTER
Wrong. Learn how the internet works. The only reason I'm connecting to Microsoft at all is because they've mandated that you have to authenticate to a Live Gold account in order to access Netflix. There's no technical reason that my Xbox couldn't connect to Netflix without touching the live servers at all. It's just an MS cash grab. Neither my Wii nor the PS3 require a paid subscription to access it, and it sure as hell isn't because Nintendo and Sony are "generous."Furthermore, you are paying to use Microsoft's servers to be connected.
Also, since you clearly don't know what an HTPC is: Home Theater PC. It's plugged into my TV, same as my Xbox, not "firing up my laptop."
You might work on your own reading comprehension before you start throwing around comments like this. Glass houses and all.Lastly, no one gives 4 shits about what your PC is and what it can do. Calm down and realize this before you sound like a goddamn 4th grader.
