The Xbox One on-boarding kinda sucks
January 18, 2016
Way back in 2001, I was lucky enough to get an (original) Xbox shortly after launch. At the time, the Carson City Target was not a terribly popular place to buy video games. Jumping up to 2005 I had become a fairly solid fan of the platform and managed to get an Xbox 360 a few months after launch. However by the time the Xbox One came around, real life had struck and I had much less free time and money for video games. There was always a longing for the XBone but never strong enough to actually get one. That was, of course, until this Christmas when my girlfriend got me the Xbox One Elite Bundle. However, this is not a story of love so much as it is a study of on-boarding.
For the love of Starbucks, who cares about the red cups?

It’s red and green, that’s Christmas-y Apparently the thing to do these days is rage on the internet against Starbucks. If you’re important enough, you can rage in person about boycotting Starbucks. Why all the rage? Because a cup is red instead of decorated with Christmas-y stuff. This is so ridiculously #firstworldproblems it hurts to even think about. So I have a suggestion for the seething masses… shut up and enjoy your coffee.
