Looking forward to being able to tell my Kinect to order me a pizza!

I don't have Kinect but I downloaded the latest XBOX live control panel update yesterday and my 13 year old son was gobsmacked by it!

For XBOX gamers under 20 this is going to be big. They already spend half the day playing games, now they can search the web at the same time with just voice commands.

This will definitely catch on, my son's comment was "no need to use the PC now, it's all on XBOX". Games, films, music, search the web ... Nice one Bing / XBOX.
