A husband went to the police station to file a “missing person” report for his missing wife:

Husband :-I lost my wife, she went shopping & hasn’t come back yet.

Inspector :-What is her height ?

Husband:-I never checked.

Inspector :-Slim or healthy ?.

Husband:-Not slim can be healthy.

Inspector :-Color of eyes ?

Husband :-Never noticed.

Inspector :-Color of hair ?

Husband :-Changes according to season.

Inspector :-What was she wearing?

Husband :Not sure whether it was a dress or a suit.

Inspector :-Was she driving?

Husband :-yes.

Inspector:-tell me the number, name & colour of the car ? . . . . .

Husband :-black Audi A8 with supercharged 3.0 litre V6 engine generating 333 horse power teamed with an eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission with manual mode. And it has full LED headlights, which use light emitting diodes for all light functions and has a very thin scratch on the front left door.….and then the husband started crying…

Inspector:-Don’t worry sir,… . .We will find your car.

The XBOX gets online media!

W00t! I’m possibly a little behind here but it appears that the XBOX360 dashboard has been brought up to date.

We’ve had Sky Player for some time now which was epic when released but now we have the likes of YouTube, 4OD, DEMAND5, Love Film, MSN Video, Blinkbox and even Dailymotion.

Wow!!

That’s more video apps than the Kinect sensor can register me waving a stick at. Now I just need an app to create enough time to use them all πŸ˜‰

Good job Microsoft. Why would anyone ever want a PS3 now?

The best thing about these apps is the way they’ve been designed, clearly focussing on the Kinect sensor being the main method of interaction.

Within the YouTube app (and all others), we’re presented with the new tile style layout which makes control by hand very easy and very cool.

Definitely about time but definitely worth the wait.

EDIT:

Marcus Lockwood @ WickedClothing just gave me a heads up on something…

He sources his information from http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-16029825.

Blimey! iPlayer was always a major thing missing, even when Sky Player was released but I’m glad to see that now the Beeb are working with Microsoft to make this happen.

Pretty soon I’m not going to need my PC on ever, and I’ll be honest…. I am really looking forward to that!!

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day

Got me this new blog. Tried many times before to achieve something with a blog but always seem to fail…

Perhaps this time it will be different, perhaps not. Only time will tell.

Regardless of that, I’m awaiting delivery of my new Apple Wireless Keyboard so that I can start using the iPad more productively.

Bored of it being just a fancy YouTube client πŸ˜‰
