Stupidity Squared

Here's another reason not to bother with an XBox One - you have to install every game - but MS figures that you have no need to know how much free space you have left. Their explanation?

Xbox One was designed to make storage management automatic. For saved games, settings, and other information that Xbox One customers save to the cloud, space is virtually unlimited. On the internal hard drive in each Xbox One, games and apps can be uninstalled or reinstalled instantly with the click of the Xbox One menu button. Saved games and settings information is retrieved from the cloud for any game as its being reinstalled. By being smart about how storage is managed, Xbox One keeps everyone playing, watching, and sharing their entertainment content rather than worry about limitations. You can also see how much storage any app uses by pressing the menu button on that app.

So they'll let me see how much space any individual thing is taking - but they expect me to whip out paper and pencil to sum it up. Which set of morons came up with this?
