XBox Live Video Store – where’s all the content?
There’s plenty of content here in the US, though as you observed it’s kinda of random – but that’s not limited to the Xbox. The bigger problem is presentation. It’s just long lists of genres. Again, Microsoft isn’t the only one with this problem. At least the Marketplace is better designed for the 10′ interface, whereas I find the PS3 more computer-like – things are too small from the couch.
Is Online Gaming Creating Citizens or Monsters?
Davis, in some of the ZNF comments and the TCF I’ve seen at least one or two mentions of adult gaming groups – I assume it would limit some of the silliness. I traded in my Xbox for a PS3 and the Xbox at least allowed me to rate asses and in extreme cases report them. No such feature on the PS3 as far as I can tell. I’ve been playing CoD4 and SOCOM withOUT my headset – less community feel, but less stupid people.
Lenovo IdeaPad S10 netbook reviewed
Agreed, it does look sharp. But after Laptop’s article, I just canceled my (delayed) order. I can live with the battery life, but the reason I’m getting a 10″ screen was for the larger keyboard. “Cramped” doesn’t work for me. Guess I’ll be keeping an eye out for deals on a 6 cell Eee 1000H or MSI Wind. Unless Apple does something crazy in the next few weeks…
MacBook Pros, what to expect, when
16″ and 18″ screens are non-standard and would boost production costs – unless it’s a start of a new trend. WiMax? Forget it – they’d need to get in bed with Sprint. If there’s any 3G or 4G, it’d be more likely they’d expand their relationship with AT&T. For the most part we’re all just educated guessing or regurgitating unsubstantiated rumors. Time will tell…
Seven Social Media Consultants That Deliver Tangible Value
Some of the best results are achieved by consultants/agencies largely invisible to the echochamber. Perhaps that’s how it should be – I know we’re all preaching transparancy, but at the end of the day it’s about the client not the consultant.
