us elections

We're still early on in the US election and while some in our audience are very enthralled with the politics we're geeking out over the technology. Tonight is Microsoft's first real widespread use of their new SmartGlass technology--the augmentation of their Xbox 360 media offerings via smartphone and tablets. In fact, SmartGlass just launched on iOS this very evening to coincide with the election coverage (provided by NBC).

We decided to give it a little video coverage ourselves, showing the service in action. The SmartGlass app allows you to participate in the live polling questions, get up to the minute electoral map coverage, details on various aspects of national and state elections and more. Overall, it's quite a fun experience and we're looking forward to more of these interactive and expanded events on the Xbox 360.

Kudos to Microsoft to really bringing something unique to our living rooms.

With the U.S. Presidential Elections right around the corner, we felt the need for a Windows Phone poll to get people in the mood to cast a vote.  Not wanting to get into politics too much, we're curious which Windows Phone 8 handset listed in our poll is fit for presidency? Which would you elect to be our spokesperson for the Windows Phone nation?

The feature packed Nokia Lumia 920? How about the light-as-a-feather HTC 8X? Are you a fan of the silent but deadly looking Samsung ATIV S? If you had the chance to vote for one, which would you elect? This is a lighthearted poll to run alongside the U.S. elections that are currently ongoing.
