Pointlessly so. This firmware update makes your Xbone take 2 less seconds to boot up!

Seriously?

Seriously. I'm expected to accept a firmware update for THAT?

Yes...ITS TWO SECONDS! Ain't nobody got time for that


Also you should read later books of old mans war...their tech is that every component in a device isn't wired to every other part...it all talks wirelessly to each...that's where it's probably going

Have you USED wireless? :) I doubt this very much.

Like, yes, my laptop could stream to my monitor, and my phone stream to my laptop, but I don't see every phone component streaming to each other anytime soon. Like possibly even within our lifetimes.

We'd have to reach some kind of impossible device density where you couldn't possibly fit any more wires on a board before wireless board components all being able to broadcast to each other wirelessly with their own self-contained power sources became more efficient than wires. Mostly because right now (and for the forseeable future?) wires are faster than wireless in pretty much every scenario.

It IS a cool idea, and I will probably dig it immensely (because hey, green superhumans with head computers were super cool).
