Is Microsoft implying that technology is God?

43 second read

One of the top Xbox Live employees, Eric Neustadter or more commonly referred to as “e”, has posted an intriguing image on twitter along with the hashtag #itmeansnothing

handofgod

ย 

Itโ€™s a cool image that brings to mind technology, advancement, integration and also that really famous graffiti that some dude called Michelangelo painted on the Sistine Chapel

So is Eric saying what a lot of people believe now and that is that technology has replaced religion for the most part and is now the source of all information? Or is it just a glimpse into how integrated the next Xbox will be?

Or do you think he found a cool picture and just posted it and even said that it doesnโ€™t mean anything?

Let us know

      Lardus can go without swearing, but Lardus will not tolerate a lack of capital letters. That will drive Lardus to a lot of swearing. There is a chance Lardus will approve of people making less spelling mistakes, as it grinds Lardus’ nuts quite a lot to read them! Will Lardus be able to talk in question format only? Would that be debatable? Perhaps Lardus will vote for speaking in 3rd person?

    Better with Kinect 2.00 Skynet always on-line Matrix system MILO THE KID Infinite-1000.

    You are the interface.

    But at least we do not have to worry about the A.I. becoming self aware as the games we play like Star Trek are still a very long way off.

    Tis beautiful. A lot of people, I think, are replacing religion with technology. A pity, we don’t need faith, in gods or technology, only logic and compassion.

    Deus Ex Machina… heh…
