One More Note on Microsoft

If you remember, Microsoft announced the One and touted its features just as the dirtier parts of the NSA story were breaking, so "all-seeing Kinect" was particularly bad timing. It all felt very creeper-esque.

Here's a thought, though. Why doesn't Kinect just ask you if it can turn itself on after you turn on the One? Just try "Hello, this is Kinect. May I turn on, please?"

Maybe they didn't want to do this because they thought too many people would say "no". But that's kind of the point about asking, isn't it?
