Xbox 360 is years ahead of PS3 in online features

If you have a Xbox 360 you don’t know how good you have it. Playstation 3 online features are atrocious.

Most of the time their network is down. When its working its dog slow at downloading demos and updates.

Most of the demos are full games which you can unlock by paying a fee. But the problem with that is you have to download a 4 Gb file to try out a game.

The online interface is also bad when you compare it with xbox.

Xbox 360 has big game title images where are as ps3 titles are just small thumbnails. Which become full screen movies when you select them not a idea ui.

Even though you have to pay 3500 Rs annual fee for xbox 360 its worth it compared to the free service offered by the ps3. PS3 also has a payed service which costs 3500 Rs per year. It offers free games and other content.

But after seeing how bad their free service is i am not willing to pay the playstation plus membership.

Xbox 360 offers a 1 month trial which lets you to see what you get with xbox live account.

Normally a system update will update all the features but not with ps3. even after a update you will have to do individual updates for many features.

At the moment xbox online ui and features are at least 5 years ahead of Playstation.

If i buy a next console it will be an xbox not playstation because next consoles will be using online heavily

Just bought an android phone, it out dated already

If you buy any android phone other than nexus series phones which google makes. Your phone will be outdated within 15 days with a new model.

Being outdated with new releases is one thing but being outdated because the software is not up to date is another thing.

For example an os update that was released 5 months back is still not on the top devices like Samsung galaxy S2 (my phone), Galaxy Note, to this day.

Even now most of the devices being released are coming with previous generation os. Most of the devices are not on Android ICS (latest version of android).

Google could implement these rules to rectify the situation.

1. Google should make it mandatory that all new phone sold should be on latest os (exceptions can be made for budget phones below $90-$70)

2. Google should look into customizations being made by the companies and limit it to basic home screen and widget customization. Which in turn will help the companies to implement latest firmwares faster.

3. Give an option to the user to switch to pure android version during initial setup. This should have been done when android was just starting. But they can make this a strick rule from now on.

4. Mandatory support to all devices sold for at least one year, if possible two years with latest firmware.

Manufactures could implement this rule themselves, give user an option to pay $30-$50 extra  and get a pure android version and support for latest firmware for two years.

Manufactures get more money and users can really take advantage of their device.

If you read reports like this you wonder where Google’s loyalty lies. If they want to save android from fragmentation hell hole this is the only way out.

Until then stick to Nexus series, teach manufactures like Samsung, HTC, Motorola and others a lesson or switch to iOS or Windows Mobile.

Lacoste who says concept videos don't work

Few years back i saw this concept video and was stunned by the futuristic look.

The futuristic look at tennis was really refreshing, they had no product to sell in the ad. But still Lacoste stuck with me as a cool brand that thinks of the future in a futuristic way.

From then on i have been a fan of Lacoste. I couldn’t afford this brands products at the time. But now that i can, i am buying all my stuff from them. All this for a ad they did few years back with no product in it.

Check out their cool product ad’s

This spray costs around 3000 Rs, its different from the regular stuff give it a try.

This is the most different spray i have tested in a few years. costs 3500 Rs 70 ml.

Nice tag line Unconventional Chic

I also like their new Lacoste labs idea, hope many of those products make it to market.

Come on Lacoste when will you launch Lacoste online store in India.

So yes concept videos work, so companies keep doing them.
