Xbox 360 in the recent years has developed into more of an entertainment platform then a gaming platform. With the introduction of Twitter, Facebook and Youtube being the most popular social apps. All this is awesome, except they are all alone.
Their are two parts to “Social Media”, Social; the exchange of updates from your friends and Media; the method of social exchange be that images, audio or videos. I look down my Twitter feed on my console and see updates containing links to images and videos which I just can’t access via the Twitter app but if I were to open Youtube and type in the link I could view the videos.
What I’m getting at here is that alone the apps are only 50% as good as the original. What we need to have is something which exists on almost every other device except consoles.
We need app/game multitasking on Xbox 360.
Links from Twitter and Facebook open videos in the Youtube app. Updating status mid-game and changing tracks on Last.fm while playing some halo! How about getting notifications mid game aswell which would be presented in the same style as the xbox notification but slightly different, like the one below which I just made?
Of course you may say, well soon we’ll have the console web browser to do that..but wont that then further kill the Xbox apps?
Thanks for listening

You may have already played the most popular indie game of all time on the PC. Minecraft is also available on Xbox 360 in the form of Minecraft: Xbox 360 edition. I bought it on release day and have been playing it every week since, the following is a summary of how I have felt about the game so far.
Non- techy Friend: What does Internet Explorer do exactly?
Me: It let’s you download better web browsers such as Google Chrome and FireFox.
Have a great weekend :D
If you had less memory in your PC, would you work more as a result of more demanding processes, such as gaming being unable to run?
If your not good at managing distractions (and a pc is distraction central) then perhaps getting a PC with less memory would be beneficial for you.
You don’t need more than a gig of ram to run word processing, spreadsheet software and you’d save a lot of money too.
Thanks for Reading :)
