A new interface for XBox 360 game console users allows you to use your voice to navigate through the games, TV shows, movies and music.
Steve Ballmer showed off this technology back in September, but starting this Tuesday, this becomes reality. It adds not only remote gesture control, but also remote voice commands. Therefore, if you don’t have a Kinect motion controller, you still can control without a remote.
The Associated Press got a special demonstration of the new features. When the Microsoft employee said “XBox Bing ‘Iron Man’,” a search for Iron Man came up. When the employee said “XBox, show movies,” a list of movies from various sources appeared.
With over 57 million XBox units sold, Microsoft is expecting to make a real impact in the cord cutters market. Adding pay channel partners like Verizon FIOS means that XBox will get into the Over the top TV market with a vengeance. You will have to use over-the-air or alternate cable methods to get network TV like NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox.
The real question is how this will affect your household. Will you cut your cord over this update? Will you start to use the XBox as more than a gaming system?
If you cannot beat them Join them. A federal judge who worked as a lobbyist for the RIAA has already ruled pro RIAA as compared to other judges reviewing similar cases. This is a major win by the RIAA and will obviously go badly for any that draw her as a judge. I talk about this and a lot more. I also announce some upcoming format changes as we look forward to the next 5 years in where this show is going to go. Obviously the Ohana are going to weigh in as I make these changes and we will see how they go.. I have decided it is really time to focus on the format as the shows has not changed much in the past 6.5 years.

Ok Mini contest someplace in the show, gonna make you do a little scavenger hunt hope you participate. Big thanks to Jeffrey and Sam who split the prize on suggestions for the Video portion of the show. While the implementation did not go perfect tonight we will get it dialed in over the coming weeks. Huge number of ideas all of them good, just need a banker as a friend to implement them all. Your show host needed sleep and a Red Bull neither which he has had much this week so have fun with Toddisms.
