    Does your 360 talk to you?

    I logged into LiveJournal to read my friend’s blogs. My Xbox 360 left this today, “GamingAngel didn’t play any games yesterday… big loser… “. my Xbox 360 is feeling a little shunned, and he’s letting me know. Thanks to 360voice.com,my Xbox 360 cheers me on when I increase my gamerscore, and complains when I don’t game. 360voice.com was created by three guys, Trapper Markelz, Steve Sopp, and David Larrabee in their spare time. During the day they all work in IT, but at night, they worked together to build on the idea of a futuristic blog. One that would write about human’s interactions with a device. Basically how the service works is it takes data from your Xbox Live Gamercard and writes a blog from the perspective of your Xbox. Your Xbox will talk about your achievements, any gamer score increases, what games you played the most, but it will

It’s called the Slanket. Jump on the Link to see more. It’s 49.99, and come in a number of colors, such as moss green, and for us girls who can’t get enough pink in our life, it comes in pink. I honestly have no idea how I feel about it. I mean for 50 dollars, I could by

    EA starts what some consider ‘hostile’ takeover of Take Two

    Electronic Arts has made a tender offer to buy all outstanding stock for $26 each. The cash bid is approximately $2 billion. According to the Wall Street Journal , “the move signals that EA’s attempt to gain control of Take-Two, publisher of the blockbuster Grand Theft Auto game, is turning hostile”. Take Two’s share price did drop the other day because of the announcement of fiscal quarter one net loses. The stock price was listed yesterday at $24.91. Which is below the $26 that EA is offerring. “We believe Take-Two investors will see our tender offer as the best way to maximize the value of their investment in Take Two. This tender offer provides a clear process to complete the proposed transaction,” said John Riccitiello, EA’s chief executive. We’ll be watching to see what happens. Take Two has 10 days to respond and is telling shareholders to not take any
