This article alludes to the bigger issue at hand: just how shitty the 360 dashboard has become. It utterly fails now from both a design aesthetic and as an advertising tool. The first point of that statement requires no elaboration. Everyone with eyes knows its a clusterfuck. It's buckshot advertising...just load a bunch of shit into the barrel and fire it at our audience. They're sure to buy one of those things.
In my case this has caused a thousand yard stare of sorts. I've built up a resistance to the constant bombardment of bullshit, and so now I don't pay attention to any of it.
On a related note, this will be my last time renewing Gold. And I don't even pay 60 for it...I'm one of those smart monkeys that figured out you can get it cheaper on Amazon. Even $35 a year is too much for this bloatware.
