The Red Ring of Death
Windows cognoscenti all know the Blue Screen of Death. Xbox 360 users are learning
about the Red Ring of Death: This is when three red lights turn on, indicating
that your Xbox is as frozen as Ted Williams' head (thanks to my daughter Lauren
for this sweet metaphor!).
Microsoft is tackling these hardware problems, extending warranties by up to
three years and setting
aside $1 billion to pay for repairs. If you're looking at a used Xbox on
craigslist or eBay, check the lights!
