Microsoft Employee Fired for Exposing Xbox 360 Defects

Thought this was interesting....


-------------------------------------

Microsoft Employee Fired For Exposing 360 Defects

filed in Industry News on Sep.15, 2008


On September 5, Venture Beat ran an article exposing the internal corporate influences behind the
Xbox 360 console’s notorious “red ring of death” defects. The writer, Dean Takahashi,
sought the help of Robert Delaware, who was a temporary game tester,
to unravel the mystery behind the series of customer complaints.
After the story went live on the internet, Delaware was fired by his supervising manager for
speaking to Takahashi without permission from Microsoft. Takahashi said in a follow-up to the story:
“He fully knew the risk he was taking, based on multiple conversations I had with him about using his name.
Clearly, from a legalistic point of view, Delaware broke company policy and it is the company’s right to fire him…
[Delaware is expected] to face civil charges from his former employer … and Microsoft as well.”
According to Takahashi’s report, Delaware helped unravel the following:
“Microsoft knew it had flawed machines, but it did not delay its launch because it believed the quality problems would subside over time. With each new machine, the company figured it would ride the “learning curve,” or continuously improve its production.
Even though Microsoft’s leaders knew their quality wasn’t top notch, they did not ensure that resources were in place to handle returns and quickly debug bad consoles. There were plenty of warning signs, but the company chose to ignore them.
The different parts of the business weren’t aligned.”


Source of Power

--------------------------------------


So Microsoft does indeed know that the 360 has some major
flaw issues, and it issued a company policy to keep them "secret"?

The guy knew the risks, yet he ratted them out....
Or as they said....."violated policy for talking to the reporter"....

Does this clear cut of evidence prove to you,
that the Xbox 360 was defective riddled from the time
it was made in the factory to being sold in the stores?

How many of ya'all had freakn A RED RINGS OF DEATH?

Rockn.

I have a 360 Elite so I'm special and get silver rings of hope.

But seriously, this is a load of bull. They just wanted the stuff on time so they settled for less than perfect. God, I hope they don't have those expectations when they release Windows 7.

I found that the Innercooler takes the ring of death away! I bought one and put it on my system and have had it for quite sometime and it keeps the core temperature about 30 degrees cooler with it on the system!
