It's not easy being a Microsoft engineer; sometimes, your boss will actually expect you to engineer things! Watch as our heroes solve the "next generation XBox" problem and the "pile of Zunes in the basement" dilemma in one fell swoop.


  • The cutaway to Sony was shot during the LoadingReadyRun panel at PAX East. Graham edited the cutaway into the video live on stage and it premiered a few minutes later.
  • The "Zunes" in the stacks are actually audio cassettes. The lone white cassette is a cassette of Rick Astley's album "Whenever You Need Somebody." The first song on this album is "Never Gonna Give You Up," later popularized by "Rickrolling."
