This parody ad by Microsoft really demonstrates why they’re behind Google.
The Verge is reporting that Microsoft plans to dump the Xbox Points system in favor of a new and far more efficient system for digital purchases: regular old cash and gift cards.

The Bad: It’s 130 minutes of fucking awful clichés and one-liners. It’s also chock-full of terrible acting. Not even Sir Ben Kingsley could save this film from itself. There’s no plot.

SCORE (Out of 10): 5
