    I play games on the PC so it seems logical for things the be the same with the Xbox One
    - so, if I can surf and research there as well, so much the better.. heh, heh!!

    the IR remote is very handy - I watch BBC iPlayer a lot on the XBoxOne
    - I've been watching a lot of Firefly on Netflix, via the Box as well..
    - also have nice shiney Elite Controller, which is an amazing piece of kit..

    my rooftop TV aerial is fubar at the moment (it's pretty ancient), but when that's back (and upgraded)
    I'll be watching the FreeView stuff via TV in-screen on the Box as well.. just gotta get round to sorting the antenna..
    ..eventually I'll invest in a Smart-Screen TV - current one's a bit limited in capability..

    - should I get a 950XL first, though - that is the question..??

    - I love having too much tech..!!

    I was just playing around with it. I can't stream it to a PC through XBOX Glass apparently if the source is HDMI. I couldn't get it to work anyway? From a Google search it looks like it only works if you have a USB tuner connected. Just to be clear, I can watch TV on my XBOX via HDMI on my TV, I just can't stream it to my PC. Which is a bummer. I'm learning as I go along. I still have some settings to go through when I get my IR blaster. Once that's all setup I'll try it again. I have to do some more reading research.

    Funny that Apple doesn't make a gaming console? I guess they figure their to refined to game?

    Yeah, if you don't already own one, I don't see these changes making anybody run out an buy one. lol, I just clipped and pasted the title of the original article as my thread title. I'm beginning to think I should have left out the Do You Care part.

    Although I knock Windows 10 deep down I would like an Xbox. Like someone else said you can never have too much tech, but as I have a ps 4 my wife would go mad - I've barely even played that due to our children dominating the TV - the menus look nice though - lol. I just wish every device played to its own strengths rather than be all things to all people. Windows as a desktop OS I feel has suffered because of it. I miss Windows 7 but I do realise Windows 10 is the future so I roll with it and endure it's frustrations. I don't mind new features such as this as long as they are not to the detriment of the OS. At the moment it seems it's moving way too quick - updates, updates, new features upon new features. Old bugs get neglected and fall down the pile and then with the new we get more bugs ontop of them. It's not just a Microsoft problem with today's attitude, many other of the big boys are at it - Apple seem to bring out a new iOS everytime the wind changes and are experts at breaking existing functionality. I just wish everybody would slow down a little, let things mature - stability and less bugs over new features would be my mantra

    In the U.S. Comcast is testing an internet tv box for people without computers. Don't know the status of this. I wonder if it will also include wifi for people who do have computers. You will just need one box for both internet & tv. Additional tvs may require another box.

    Another smaller cable company is testing wifi for all your devices including tvs in the house. Don't know the status of this either.

Your not really playing the game per say anymore though. It's different levels and layouts with a different objective. HALO 1 Combat Evolved and HALO 2 were released to PC and XBOX, HALO 3, 4 and 5 are XBOX only. I wanted to play them so I bought one. I'll slowly add other games as time goes on.
    I came close to buying a Xbox once. The games that I looked at all mentioned something about online and multi player so I passed. I recently started playing Kings Quest on Steam. I'm at a point in the game where I have to do some fast shooting and because of the Arthritis in my hand I'm having a heck of a time getting past it.

    I'm not the least bit interested in the multi player type games. My personal favorite is fist person shooters, HALO, Medal of Honor, Wolfenstein, Dishonored, etc. A lot of games have a multi player mode as an extra. Halo does but I likely will never use it. There is copy protection in some that requires an internet connection. Like Steam but through XBOX Live. It sucks, and I don't like it, but that's life. I have high speed Internet so it's not that big a deal for me.

    I was more into adventures games. I spent many hours playing games such as Indiana Jones, King Quest, Space Quest, and Quest for Glory. The first games I played on a computer were all text adventure games.

    If an inexpensive $300 Xbox game console could double as a Windows computer, would you use it that way? This summer, Xbox One owners will finally be given that option. Microsoft will turn the separate Windows 10 and Xbox One app stores into a single shared marketplace, the company confirmed at a develop

    What that means: Users should be able to buy a piece of Windows software just once, and use it on an Xbox One game console in addition to desktop and laptop PCs. Xbox One owners will gain access to productivity apps and expanded social networking, not just games. The $300 Xbox One could become a cheap way to turn a TV into a Windows PC.

    The Xbox is finally becoming a Windows PC. Do you care?
    I have signatures turned off.

    Isn't the X bone One just a semi custom 8 core AMD Jaguar 1.75 GHZ APU with Radeon HD 7000 series GPU graphics which these days are hardly remarkable and maybe just above the bottom feeders but then again it's an appliance PC from 2012 -2013 or whenever for the console slaves being ported to windows 10 and not for real PC gaming or brute force computing but for $ 3-$400.00 thats about the price of a decent kinda mid range PC d/GPU anyway or a cheap slimline SFF Celeron ,AMD APU or Pentium desktop or maybe an i3 box which you could stuff an GTX 670 or 680 or GTX 7xx or AMD R9 280/290 into and maybe make something OK out of it !

    I could it as a low end notebook spec PC /console slave gamer but maybe with better graphics than a bottom end notebook up to whatever it can push at playable frame rates and console slave video quality but not for me CPU or game wise but OK and unremarkable for some folks .
