Xbox 360- Elegant Edition Ads Class And Silence To Your Gaming Experience

  The current version of the Xbox 360 with its inhale concept is fairly nice in the way of design, that is until you turn it on.  The rushing fans creating a roar that makes the gaming experience sound like you’re in a wind tunnel can be gone for good with the elegant edition.  This case mod brings back the boxy DVR or VCR look of times past, but ads a very valuable 3 fan setup to create a near silent experience.

Will You Be Getting A Zune HD?


  The Zune has a sympathetic pull on the gadget loving side of me.  While I generally use Apple products, I like the drive of the underdog.  Microsoft knows how to play catchup as we have seen with the Xbox 360 and the great experience many of us have online with our friends.  The real question is will Microsoft hit a home run with the Zune HD?  If you have an iPod Touch then you can guess the Zune HD will have a similar feature set.  The real problem lies in the lack of a hugely successful app store.  I am cautiously optimistic that Zune HD can deliver such an app store, but Microsoft has a vast pocket to draw from.  The marketing power of a company with such monetary resources that far outweigh most companies certainly helps get Zune noticed.

Netflix Streaming Finally Comes To Mac


  Netflix has long allowed its PC users to stream their online selection via Windows and soon the Xbox 360.  The same has not held true for the Mac as we thought Netflix would eternally neglect the ability.  Now you can finally watch the streaming video on your Mac, but that comes with an ironic catch.  Netflix has decided to stream via Microsoft’s competitor to flash, Silverlight.  Silverlight is a very capable platform and was used by NBC during the Bejing Olympics.  Since then, NBC has dumped Silverlight in favor of its traditional flavor of Flash.
