    New XBOX 360

    • 8 Comments

    Pretty sweet looking….glad I just offloaded my original 360 :) Lots more photos over on MajorNelson’s Flickr site and on the Microsoft Blog. In other news, 25m users on XBOX Live…that’s quite a cloud service. Oh and Kinect will launch on November 4th. Worldwide.

    Check out the full event with game footage, Cirque Du Soleil and more.

    Windows Live Messenger for iPhone

    Get Microsoft Silverlight

    Windows Live Messenger is now on iPhone in English and French for the US, Canada, UK and France. You can grab it from the iPhone App Store. I think they’ve done a pretty good job on the UI. What you reckon? Also some good SkyDrive integration for handling photos.

    Rethinking Philanthropy

    • 2 Comments

    I stumbled across this post from CNN simply because I loved the photo above of Warren Buffett and Bill Gates having a laugh in a diner.  After chuckling at the collection I went on to read the post itself. Wow….what a read. It’s long but worth it if you have any interest in philanthropy or who big minds work. It would seem that Bill and Melinda Gates, along with Mr Buffett are aiming to get the super rich to donate somewhere in the region of $600bn to good deeds. CNN estimates the Fortune 400 who are being encouraged currently donate something like $10-$15bn. Quite a hike then.

    Oh and the letter from Bill & Warren to Mr Rockefeller is one for lettersofnote – I love seeing how folks like this converse with each other and it’s a rare insight.

    Wanna see what it’s like to be a Jedi using XBOX Kinect? Check out this video courtesy of Wired. To quote them

     

    Oh man! It turns out that Star Wars Kid was doing nothing less than predicting the future. The awesome future. Microsoft has demonstrated its Project Natal, which has been renamed Kinect and transformed into a motion-controller for the Xbox 360.

    I need this. Now!
