This is Suzuki’s new Xbox 360 Concept car, totally inspired by the xbox 360, and most likely a large cheque from MS.

Looking at the images it has 2 360s, 2 projectors, 2 LCD screens. Oh, and it’s a car!

God knows the price on this thing, but I doubt it will ever be sold 😦

Well yesterday i posted about how i started submitting my posts to digg.com, to see if it would increase my readers or just site hits, i thought i might get an extra 10 or something at most for the first day.

So i turned my computer off last night, just as the people in america turn theirs on, with my blog at 31 Hits. I turn it on this morning, as the americans go to bed, to reveal the new total hit number standing at 429!

So thanks to Digg.com, and a bigger thanks to everyone and anyone who is reading this and any of my other posts! And also, i recieved my first comment on a post yesterday from ‘Chris’ on my review of the BBCi player. So thanks everyone, as its knowing that people are reading this that drives me forward to write more and better.

But i guess thats the internet.

Dugg.

Don’t feel you have to laugh at my slightly funny joke. But the point is that i’ve started to use Digg.com to submit my blog posts to. Hopefully it’ll help see an increase in traffic and spread the word of the Blog. If you already have a digg.com user account you can just click “Digg it!” at the top corner of each post. If you don’t have a digg.com account visit their site and sign up, it takes less then about 3 minutes!

Also, I’ve started adding tags to the posts, i’ll have to see how they turn out

Comments on what you think of the Digg service or tagging?

BBCi Player January 2, 2008

Well i’d seen a few ads on TV about this BBCi Player service on bbc.co.uk. It allows you to watch and download any programme on a BBC channel from the past 7 days. “Making the unmissable, unmissable” Its does just that.

It has a very simple interface (VIEW HERE) which takes a matter of seconds to work out how to use once you have the Download Manager installed. And if you don’t want to download anything then you can just stream the programs in your browser youtube-style.

The only downside is that you cant set up and queue up downloads from Firefox, but to set up a download you will only find youself using InternetExplorer for a matter of seconds. They also mentioned in the FAQs section that they were working on getting it linked with ‘other browsers’. Then you can also minimise the BBCi download manager to the tray and it will download in the background. This sort of thing reminded me alot of Xbox 360 background downloads.

Even my Dad was impressed, we sat down and watched last nights ‘Best of Top Gear’ on my 19″ TFT monitor, and even when full size, the picture quality was surprisingly good.

Overall, I was very impressed at this service and will be using it alot in the future. I thoroughly reccommend it to anyone. 😀
