Project Natal unveiled
Project Natal, Xbox’s answer to the growing trend for motion sensitive games, was demonstrated in London earlier this week.
At this moment in time I am sitting in a hotel room in Barcelona. My plans for actually getting out and exploring the city a little today are in ruins for two reasons: it’s colder than it is at home right now; and I’m shattered from an early morning flight to make the Showstoppers event ahead of Mobile World Congress.
There are several things that will remain certainties for me: I will always lose the USB camera from my at least once; despite owning about 16GB of memory cards, I will always run out of space too soon ; and photographs from holidays will, if not uploaded almost immediately, get forgetten about until I find the memory card months later.
Technology has moved quickly and unless you were quick to jump on the DVD bandwagon, you probably still have several video tapes lurking in a cabinet somewhere.
A quick search of my own revealed a stash of videos hiding behind the DVDs. I’ve no idea what they were doing there. haven’t owned a video player since 2001. And I’ve moved three times since then.
If you’ve embraced the idea of digital audio, you probably have a large collection of MP3s on your laptop or portable hard drive, a folder full of downloaded podcasts and got your head around internet radio. But who wants to be tied to their computer?
Bose’s Soundlink opens your music collection to a wider audience. Your laptop is relegated to the role of intermediary, grabbing MP3 files, internet radio, podcasts or whatever other audio content you want to hear, and sending it to the wireless Soundlink.
