Gamer Question

My six year old XBox360 is getting twitchy - I have to hold up the tray while the disk goes in and even then have to try it three or four times before it works. If I buy an Xbox One will this solve the problem? Will my disks play? Will I be able to transfer my achievements and progress over? If not, what can I do to make my Xbox360 let twitchy. It does end up playing the games, it's just a pain in the ass to have to fiddle with it to get it to do so.

Don't Tell Me There's No Hope At All

Roger Waters' response to why people like "The Wall"

"I think people are sick and tired of being told that the most important thing in their life is commerce and the new this and the new that. I think people are probably ready to go now, 'Well, all of that rhetoric lead us to lob bombs over the top of the wall, that divides society ecologically, economically, philosophically and politically, from all our fellow human beings. And we no longer want to be told by our political leaders that they are scum and that we are great.' So that I believe that it may be we're no longer interested in the 'us and them' form of political philosophy that we've been fed on for the last couple of 1,000 years and that we may be ready to move into a new place. All that, plus "Comfortably Numb" is awesome."
