I'm assuming you either didn't watch the video or your reading comprehension took a dive.
1. The guy is the VP of advertising, that's what he's supposed to talk about. He mentions more than just the One and it's used in context of a broader initiative.
2. MS has said there will be no advertisements on your home screen.
3. It stands to reason then that the point of the always on feature isn't because of
the desire to advertise to you more(the contention leading to my response to him) but rather that the always on nature is a benefit to
their initiative. There's a distinct difference and I'm sure you're smart enough to know what it is.
I think it's funny you assume I'm just blindly defending MS from something "obviously" negative. I've been a pretty vocal critic of a lot of their decisions with the One but even I understand the bigger picture here with respect to this video. Maybe you should try it too.Edited by pcweber111 - 6/18/13 at 12:52pm
