The guys over at Anandtech have a very in depth review of how to take apart an XBOX 360 - which I'll not be doing with mine when it arrives!
I do like the way the CPU has XBOX 360 engraved on it though :)
Time to go download from an internal share and get dogfoodin :)Chris Capossela called Office 12 "the most significant release in more than 10 years"
Now this should be interesting - our CTO, Ray Ozzie, has started a public blog on Spaces (of course) where he plans to enter in to public discourse about projects and stuff at Microsoft. Clearly smarter than the average bear, this should prove an interesting one to monitor.
Ray Ozzie was the man behind Lotus Notes which was a pretty groundbreaking product (I used it at two pharmaceuticals companies I worked at before joining Microsoft). As our chief technical officer Ozzie reports to BillG and as his bio says he has "has responsibility for influencing corporate communications and collaboration strategy, applications and platform infrastructure, and for helping drive Microsoft's software-based services strategy and execution across all three of the company's divisions". He was a driving force behind the recent Live annoucements - that alone should make his blog a good read.
Okay - I'm on a roll with this theme now. Check out this hilarious (but cool....yep, we do cool!) XBOX 360 ad
