Geek Links of the Week

Verizon is going to court to kill Net Neutrality in the United States. If they’re successful, you might have to pay your ISP to access certain sites just like you do with your cable package. It would be the end of the internet. [InfoWorld]

Apple’s original design guru, Hartmut Esslinger, says that Apple has lost its soul and no longer innovates but it driven by money. [The Atlantic White]

Most of us haven’t worked retail jobs at a games store so we just assume that people have some idea of what they’re doing when they walk into a GameStop or the game section of Wal-Mart. However, that assumption would be entirely wrong. The average consumer has no idea about such concepts as console names, game reviews and ESRB ratings. [Destructoid]

Remember when Rock Band was the biggest game in the world. It seemed like everybody played it or wanted to play it. It certainly has disappeared, hasn’t it? [Gameological]

Microsoft has bought the xbone.com domain. Just thought that you might want to know. [Fusible]
