ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:44 PM) :boredom: we could of had him a few years ago
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:44 PM) but at least he didn't break it on us
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:45 PM) I don't think he wanted to be here
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:46 PM) I don't really care for passing records being broken. Qbs now have a lot of rules in their favor
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:46 PM) I mean even the catch that got them into the redzone was a PI call that wouldnt of been called when favre played
Jetsman05 Icon : (20 October 2014 - 05:16 AM) is that a suggestion that Favre was a better QB than Peyton?
santana Icon : (20 October 2014 - 08:05 AM) No it's a suggestion that passing records today are a bit skewed by the modern rules
santana Icon : (20 October 2014 - 08:05 AM) everyone knows Favre is the bestest ever that's not even an argument duhhhhh

santana Icon : (Yesterday, 12:36 PM) hey 05.. yo 05... 05!!!!
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 12:36 PM) UEFA TIME
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:35 PM) Jets to sign Kerley to a 4 year extension
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:43 PM) he's a good slot WR, i'm assuming we got him cheap, can't complain
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:43 PM) we need to lock up wilk. but if harvin pans out, were set at WR for the next 4 years as decker, kerly, and harvin are all under contract.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:44 PM) Ivory is good too, we need a speed back (CJ sin't cuting it) and some o-line and mainly a QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:46 PM) Our offensive weapons aren't bad, need a qb and ol
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:09 PM) they were bad when decker was hurt and it was nelson and kerly starting and salas in the slot
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:40 PM) That damn street thug Kerley
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:18 PM) Yeah because Nelson is terrible, Salas is no more than a #4 kind of wr
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:55 PM) Can we focus more on this street thug who is stealing $16 million from the team!?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:05 PM) salas shouldn't be on an NFL roster. #4 WR is a bit generous
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 06:00 PM) extending kerley is a great move. i could see another team poaching him off the roster real fast.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:17 PM) Salas isn't that bad, hes made some plays for us this season.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:17 PM) You know who shouldn't be on a NFL roster, Salim Hakim. IDK why hes still on the Jets, he was TERRIBLE at KR and has no value as a WR. Waste of a roster spot IMO
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:18 PM) Percy Harvin will be our KR now, I would imagine. Hes electric at it
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:48 PM) yeah hakim is another one i don't understand. he is even attempting to play WR and got benched at KR
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 07:27 AM) FIRE IDZIK

Xbox 360 Warranty Expanded To 3 Years For 'Red Ring' Errors

Xbox 360 Warranty Expanded To 3 Years For 'Red Ring' Errors After what it calls “an unacceptable number of repairs to Xbox 360 consoles,” Microsoft has announced an extension to the console's warranty, covering its infamous 'red ring' general hardware failure error for three years past the date of purchase.

Since its debut in 2005, the Xbox 360 has gained a reputation across a number of internet forums and weblogs for hardware failure, and, in a statement issued today, Microsoft officials note that the company has conducted "extensive investigations" into possible causes for problems with the Xbox 360 hardware. As a result, the company has “made improvements to the console and is enhancing its Xbox 360 warranty policy for existing and new customers.”

Xbox 360 owners who experience the “three flashing red lights” error with their Xbox 360 within three years of purchase can have their consoles repaired at no cost. The company adds that as a result of this, it will incur a $1.05 billion to $1.15 billion pre-tax charge to earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2007 for anticipated costs under its current and enhanced Xbox 360 policies.

Microsoft notes that those who have already paid for such repair charges can expect reimbursement checks for the amount of their console repair.

“The majority of Xbox 360 owners are having a great experience with their console and have from day one. But, this problem has caused frustration for some of our customers and for that, we sincerely apologize,” said Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft’s Entertainment & Devices Division. “We value our community tremendously and look at this as an investment in our customer base. We look forward to great things to come.”

Microsoft corporate vice president Peter Moore has written an open letter to the Xbox community stating that the company has "not been doing a good enough job" at its customer service over the hardware problems.

"Some of you have expressed frustration with the customer experiences you have had with Xbox 360; frustration with having to return your console for service after receiving the general hardware error message on the console," said Moore.

"If we have let any of you down in the experience you have had with your Xbox 360," he added, "we sincerely apologize. We are taking responsibility and are making these changes to ensure that every Xbox 360 owner continues to have a great experience."

[UPDATE: In a call to Microsoft investors, Bach and Microsoft CFO Christopher Liddell explained that despite the $1 billion the company will incur from the new initiative, the overall health of the Xbox business is very strong.

Liddell added that he was "disappointed in the result from a financial perspective," but that in Microsoft's view "customer satisfaction" was the priority, saying that the undertaking would "strengthen the long term health of Xbox business."

Liddell also said that despite the charges, the company was not updating its fiscal 2008 guidance, with Bach responding to a question saying that the September release of "four letters called H A L O" would cushion the financial blow.

Asked when the company first became aware of the issues it says it has resolved, Bach said that for a "little over first year," the "set of issues wasn't visible at all," but during the last couple of months the company has seen "significant increases, significant call volume, and significant attention" to the problem.

While Bach was unwilling to talk specific numbers of consoles repaired or return rates, he said that "with a billion dollar charge... it's a meaningful number -- one that we take very seriously, and one that clearly has our attention."

The company was also quick to add that the issue was something that should be seen as "Microsoft's responsibility," and that the company's manufacturing partners have "done good work," but the problems arose from a "Microsoft design challenge," and are something "the company can now engineer around."

Finally, Liddell added that the new three year policy should be seen as "more of a security blanket, than an expectation on our part" of further failures for new consoles sold from this point on.]
