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!
