Jaybird is Birdmojo on Xbox Live and Jaybirdmojo on Playstation's network. He's been playing consoles since the Atari 2600 and it was Zork that taught him how to touch-type. If you've got a song for Wednesday, a commercial for Saturday, a recommendation for Tuesday, an essay for Monday, or, heck, just a handful a questions, fire off an email to


  1. (And, for the record, I tested this on my own browser before posting this to confirm whether this was just an ugly rumor. Got the same results. Dang.)

    • Huh. If you just type in “xbox one is”, you get a bunch of negative terms. If you type in “the xbox one is”, you get “amazing” and nothing else. That does make it look rigged.

      • I got negative results for:
        1.) “Xbox one is…” on Google.
        2.) “The Xbox one is…” on Google.
        3.) “Xbox one is…” on Bing.

        I got a sole result for “The Xbox one is…” on Bing: “… amazing.”

        Something is fishy.

        • And if you put in “the ps4 is”, you get nothing at all. Without the “the”, the results are mixed.

        • Yes, sounds like some people may be reverse-googlebombing Bing.
