When asked about the nickname 'Xbone' for the Xbox One recently, Microsoft salesman 'Major Nelson' opined, "I don't like it...it disrespects the teams that have put in thousands of hours (already) into the development of the product. Sure, it's cheeky but I don't care for it myself." Tough.
Tough because Microsoft's bigwigs liked it so much that they bought the domain. At least that's what the latest WHOIS records
