The big story of the day is how Microsoft will be selling the Xbox One without the Kinect starting this June. Good! But what about the user interface? The Xbox One's UI was designed to be "best" used with Kinect, and thankfully Microsoft will be addressing this matter.

All I want is auto-sign-in by default. It's really annoying having to sign-in into my one account every single time I turn on the Xbox One. Which isn't often, but you know what I mean.
