Apparently it will be officially unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show next week, but a video of the car (promo video) has been leaked onto the net
The details are a little sketchy, but it’s apparently 500Bhp and 737Ft-Lb, with a 4.3 0-62 time and top speed just shy of 190Mph. And even get’s 10ltrs to a 100Km on the fuel side of things, which isn’t shabby for a supercar.
With all the issues with the Microsoft XBox Live service over the last few weeks, there is a bit of a debate starting about the cost of the service, and why Gold users are not being compensated for the issues.
A good post was popped up onto the XBox official forums. However it seems someone at Microsoft disliked the message posted, and shortly after posting, it was taken down.
Here is a link to a saved copy of the message, but here is an excerpt
Yes, we’re getting a free Xbox Live Arcade game as compensation for nearly 3 weeks of Xbox Live downtime. Woohoo. No details have been given, and as a result I suspect that this free game will be a specific title or list of titles which Microsoft will choose. I feel that at the very least we deserve to be either refunded for a month of Xbox Live or given a free month on top of this. Think about it, if your cell phone service had trouble for a month, dropping calls, refusing to dial numbers, etc., you wouldn’t be satisfied with a free cell phone game. The first step would be a refund for that month and then some sort of compensation for the inconvenience on top of that.
I can’t say I agree more, well said. Pop and read the article, and please let’s try make Microsoft understand, us the users of Live would like to feel more valued.
Oh and not to be put to shame, Sony are mirroring the Live issues with the PS Store. They just cannot let Microsoft get the one up.
Has someone got a few quid that I could borrow? It’s just I fancy ordering something off eBay, and don’t think that my Paypal account will stretch to the price.
If you fancy helping out, This is what I want to buy. If you lend me the 1Million quid, I’ll pay it back over the next 100 years, and will even let you have a go.
p.s. Joke people, but if you can donate me a million quid, then hey go for it!
OK, so the ‘Big’ XBox announcement was that BT are going to use the 360 as a device to stream their broadband TV service to, big deal, that will help the three people that want to use the service. Oh well.
Other things that can be worked out from the keynote?
Well, the new version of Vista Picture Gallery seemed to have export to Flickr in it, which is nice, or at least the presenter that was showing off the Windows Live stuff had it in her Vista (seems a bit of an oxy moron, but hey) – Update, cheers to Simon, Here’s a link to the download of the beta.
The 360 has 10 million Live users now, and 17.7 million consoles in the wild, with the largest attachment rate in industry history. All good news for the MS Console.
No news on HD-DVD and the rumoured Toshiba announcement, perhaps it’s because of the recent Warner Blu-Ray exclusive announcement. So perhaps Toshiba asked for the news to be cut from the Keynote?
Disney, ABC, MGM have signed up to allow their content onto the Microsoft Download TV service (along with the BT streaming stuff).
No real Windows Mobile announcements, but we have the news about what’s coming in that anyhow.
We got reminded about Media Center, that it ships with Vista (some versions anyhow).
We got to see the Zune Social, yeah ship it to Europe you muppets! also saw the Ford Sync car stuff, ho hum, it’s all been in the Fiat range for 12 months now, so nothing new there, just Ford USA are (as usual) 12 months behind.
So the real reason for the event was to say goodbye to Bill, he leaves MS (full time) this year, and goes on to run his and his wife’s charity.
It’s kind of sad to see Bill leave Microsoft, yeah he is’nt leaving it fully, but, hey MS would not be MS without him….. I suppose now we will see.
My word, what a new years day I have had! My car was broken into at 6am this morning, they nicked a bag, that unfortunately had my DS, and a couple of other bits and bobs in, oh well….
However I would love to know what my tax pounds do? I’ve so far been on the phone trying to get through to the police for the last 45 minutes, and it just rings!
I would dearly love to know why I even bother paying tax, when you need the boys(and girls) in blue, you cant get hold of them anyway.
I am going to have to keep listening to the ring though, as I need a crime number before I can get a new window for the car from my insurance company!
Oh, and if I find the people/person that did it, your getting your bollox re-arranged, so just a warning! (oh and do you like the fact you cannot actually use any of the stuff you have nicked, as it’s all password protected!, just give me back the USB memory sticks, as they are useful to me, and not to you!)
Oh, merry new year
