Not So Much Feelin’ This Xbox 1080 Portable Concept

Not So Much Feelin’ This Xbox 1080 Portable Concept
Kotaku’s Owen Good likened this concept to Blaster from Transformers. Personally, I’d go with a “V-Tech” comparison, or maybe even “LeapFrog.” You know what I’m talking about – something that my 5-year-old sister (and I do have one) would use to help learn her letters, something big and shiny with oversized plastic buttons.

Microsoft (Mis)Educates Best Buy Employees About Linux

Microsoft (Mis)Educates Best Buy Employees About Linux
A Best Buy employee recently posted screenshots of what he claims is part of a training program about Windows 7. The screenshots show some Windows vs. Linux comparisons.

Halo Mimobot Flash Drives Defends Your Data From the Covenant
The Master Chief MIMOBOT isn’t a towering 7-footer with a 700 lb. armor like his video game counterpart, but he can store data. Like, up to 8 GB. And he has a huge head. As you can see, Blue and Red Spartans have also enlisted to protect your spreadsheets and documents.

The Future of Desktop Computing is Looking More and More Like Star Trek

The Future of Desktop Computing is Looking More and More Like Star Trek
Microsoft’s “top research and strategy officer” Craig Mundie demoed various flashy & functional future tech that the company believes will be an integral part of the future desktop computing experience. Mundie’s demo included “hologram-like videoconferencing, a virtual digital assistant, and multiple surface computers, along with voice-, touch- and gesture-recognition technology.” Where’s the visual & olfactory recognition tech?

‘Splosion Man Tearing Up Xbox Live Arcade
From the minds behind The Maw comes ‘Splosion Man, a colorful action platformer packed with hilarious achievements and visuals that are at times evocative of Wall-E. You may be able to guess what ‘Splosion Man is about.

The Console Wars, Crafted

The Console Wars, Crafted
Who will win: the gigantor Xbox 360, or the lovable mascots of Nintendo? Unfortunately for Microsoft, the ‘box has been cast in the role of villain in this piece, and you know what happens to the villains….

Microsoft: Check Out Our in-Game Ads or We’Ll Starve Your Virtual Dog

Microsoft: Check Out Our in-Game Ads or We’Ll Starve Your Virtual Dog
Okay, perhaps I’m being a little ridiculous with my title there, but I’m torn between thinking this new development from Microsoft is both funny and completely horrible. Microsoft’s adding all sorts of new ads to the Xbox 360 interface, and now there’s a patent for walking billboard avatars who hang around in avatar-supported games.

Ben Heck’S Xbox 360 Laptop Rev. 5 is One Bad Mofo Portable System
This wouldn’t be the first time that casemodding king Ben Heck has cranked out an Xbox 360 laptop. As a matter of fact, this is the fifth revision of Heck’s portable 360 modding shenanigans. But the fact that he manages to cram such a beefy system into a portable case never gets old for me.

Serious Sam is Back, Getting Down to Business on Xbla

Serious Sam is Back, Getting Down to Business on Xbla
Nearly a decade ago, Croteam, a team of six developers in Croatia got real damn serious about making a first person shooter, and the resulting hero is the stuff of cult legend. Serious Sam has everything that makes great shooters really great: crazy weapons, major fights, and a sense of humor.

Microsoft: It Pays to Use Internet Explorer 8

Microsoft: It Pays to Use Internet Explorer 8
This is how things are in the browser world: Opera never recovered from its commercial days, Safari is… okay I guess, Firefox is customizable, Chrome is speedy, and Internet Explorer is owned by a powerful company with lots of money.

New Windows 7 Build on Torrent Sites! There’S a New Wallpaper Zomg!

New Windows 7 Build on Torrent Sites! There’S a New Wallpaper Zomg!
Okay so maybe I shouldn’t be so sarcastic; the new build sports significant changes as well. Or should I say “builds”. But I’m getting ahead of myself: Build 7232 of Windows 7 was leaked yesterday, bringing with it improved driver support and application compatibility.
