Not sure if this is specific to the Xbone or also includes the 360.

Just a rumour but hey you'll get ponies and delusional people spouting conspiracy stuff so eh.

Even if it does happen its no big deal its just ads.

every company collects user data and uses it in a specific way or sells it.

count how many advertisements you see while your driving to work (both going too, and coming home from), count how many advertisements you hear on the radio, count how many advertisements you see when your watching television (30min sitcom how much of that time are ads), count how many ads you passively look at on 360. if ads weren't a big deal, how come their everywhere?

What do any of those have to do anything?

Like I said they are ads and having ads in your dashboard is no big deal just like ads in the billboards, on tv or on the radio.

go some place that doesn't drown you in advertisements everywhere at all times and you will realize how big of a deal it actually is.

I fail to see that point you're trying to prove?

Having political ads on Xbox isn't a bad or good thing it's just no big deal at all?

simply answer one question for me, if advertisements weren't such a big deal how come you cant go anywhere or do anything without seeing/hearing them?

I have to assume darkhare doesn't have the ability to tune things out, so if it exists, it's a big deal.

I have to agree with Tyronelio here, I don't care.

I still fail to your point?

I'm clearly stating that political ads in tc article post aren't a big deal because they're no different then any targeted marketing.

Obviously ads in whole are a big deal but hat does that have to with the topic or with what I said? Or did you misunderstand?
