Let the Rumors Fly! The Tuesday Update Rumors.

So…I knew rumors would fly…and they are.  Remember last time when we had that update, I think it was January or February, where everyone thought camera support would be there?  And they were all wrong?  Well, I think it is going to happen again.

These are my favorite rumors:

  • Various Xbox enthusiast sites are reporting that Microsoft’s update to the Xbox Live online game service will add key communications features, such as the ability to send and receive voice and text messages to foes and teammates during games.

  •  Later, the company will reportedly add a voicemail feature. To foster a better community around Xbox Live.

What makes these rumors even better…are that they are already features we have, and have had for sometime!  Voicemail?  Isnt that just a voice message?  Or is that “I am sorry, but Mastaglach820 is not available at this time”…I go with the voice message.


On10.net has a great Windows Vista Preview Video!

I am getting into this whole on10.net.  There are some videos I like…some I don’t.  You can’t win them all.


Some may have realized that I have been beta testing Windows Vista.  I am truly loving it, and can’t wait for a final version that is polished (there are slight performance issues, but we are about 6 or so months from “going gold”, as they would say in the game industry, that I am not scared).


Windows Collaboration…what it can do.

I am sitting in my Economics 203 class last night, and I am thinking about Vista.  I have a paper due, so I can’t play around with it just yet.  But…I am thinking…man, the teacher always has to switch over to our video projector (which is really cool), to do the graphs.

Now, I am thinking…well, we could all do a windows collaboration and everyone can chime in, and get that.  It would be really great for internet classes and such.  And what could make it even better…tablet PCs.

I see alot of good things coming from Vista.

Video Schedule Error? What causes this?

I truly dont know. I thought it was related to me using trillian, but it happened again when I used my media controls on my computer. I thought, ok, so it is unsupported.

But, then it happened when I am just here. It happened again while running Trillian on this new build.

The problem is…I don’t know how to report it. It happens over so many situations, that it is impossible for me to do it. I took a physical picture (took my digital cam out), and snapped a shot. Those bluescreens go too quick to get any info.

Take a gander:

First few minutes of Vista Build 5365.

Ok…so I talked about my switch from 5308 to 5342…well the switch from 5342 to 5365 is AGAIN a performance upgrade. Man, IE7 is definetly alot better.

Today is probably the last day this weekend ill spend with this build. Got a paper due monday, so I gotta get on XP for that (everything is still on XP). Will have more later this week.

Oh, the new gadgets…so cool!

Updated: Mark Ecko still an idiot.

I usually dont call people out, but I made a previous post about this dude.  It was about him “tagging” Air Force 1.

Well…in all his political activist glory, he admitted to it being a hoax.

Ecko acknowledged Friday that his company had rented a 747 cargo jet at San Bernardino’s airport and covertly painted one side to look like Air Force One. Employees signed secrecy agreements and worked inside a giant hangar until the night the video was made. Ecko declined to say how much the stunt cost.

“It’s not cheap,” he said. “You have to be rich.”


Hey Ecko, why don’t you shut up, and instead of trying to start your political activism…why don’t you donate money to schools?  How about education children int he classroom to be smart, and have the ability to go on, and maybe become politicians.  But…that isnt cool right?  Cmon, we are Ecko here.
