Soo, turns out I've been remiss in not catching up with you guys but in my defense I stopped receiving notifications of new posts (anyone else had that?). What I miss?

If you're missing tech fetish then you might want to check out last week's podcast beyond! Where they talk about the prospect of an always on Xbox and other thing next gen

Could the prolonged delay of the announcement of the next console (compared to the PlayStation) be explained by a concern on how to package this (probably) unpopular feature?

So there are rumours about the new nexus 7 - personally I cannot imagine a tablet giving me more than my current nexus and rumours of faster processes and better screens do nothing more me (mostly because I can't comprehend the difference am sure).

New news about +Project Glass Apparently, the initial run at least, will be manufactured in California, USA
