This deserves a mention: check out TechShop, a fully equipped shop were you can go and use equipment in the same way you might use fitness equipment at your local gym. Very nifty idea. I'd love to see one of these pop up near me.

Xbox 360 Elite

Finally picked up an Xbox 360. I have to say, the 360 is hands down the best Microsoft product I've ever used. It's such a tightly integrated experience. Consoles have come a long way, and I'm impressed. Xbox Live and the ability to easily find friends, see what they are playing, and hop into matches is great.

Here's a photo of the 360 Elite:

Here's the Xbox dash running in HD through an HDMI cable on my 42" 1080p LCD (click photo for larger image):

The only con for me is the fan noise, but it's only noticeable with the volume down.
