Time to rebrand Windows Central to "Microsoft Central" since you will be covering more than Windows ;-)
Listened to the podcast today. Definitely agree with Dan that Microsoft needs a remote with voice control. Heck, even Xfinity advertises their system with a voice remote; if you're behind Xfinity/Comcast, you're really in trouble. From the discussion, it sounded like one issue might be that with the current setup they'd have to create a voice remote that acts like a game controller as far as the Xbox is concerned, and that would lead to rapid battery drain being always on or needing to "boot" the remote after a period of inactivity. If so, aren't Microsoft supposed to be introducting support for new wireless (no dongle) headsets that connect via the Xbox wireless tech this fall? Maybe that sort of support would make a non-IR voice remote more practical.
