I wonder what Bill Gates and the Microsoft’ies would think about this article from The Washington Post.
Microsoft’s Xbox video-game console is turning out to be a surprisingly versatile machine – with a little unauthorized help.
Describes a lot about mod-chipping, and XBOX Media Center – highlighting that it’s a “hobbyist” activity – not just for “pirating games”.
I haven’t tried out the web-browsing using a keyboard – have done so with the XBOX Controller – but very tedious to enter a URL. ( The “game-ports” on the front of the XBOX are simply USB ports – so, just need an adapter, and will be able to use a USB keyboard & mouse. )
But – for now, the remote control is enough – for simply browsing through songs & movies. And of course, use the game-controller for playing GAMES !
