“Microsoft will include an Xbox One chat headset and a 4K-rated HDMI cable in the box when the system ships this November, the company confirmed today in an unboxing video of a “Day One” edition of its next-generation console”

So it bloody well should.

Rdio

This is a really big addition to Rdio, defiantly now one of the stronger streaming services.

“At the center of the new offering is a station that Rdio calls You FM. “It’s a personalized station that takes into account everything Rdio knows about me,” Becherer said. This includes signals like your listening history, but also thumbs-up and -down ratings as well as the tracks you added to your library, and even the bands and albums you like on Facebook or tweet about on Twitter. The underlying recommendation engine is powered by the Echo Nest, which is using billions of data points from all over the web, including data supplied by collectors of vinyl records.”

Just in case you missed it, the Rolling Stones are still on the iPlayer. Worth a watch.

I found this very stressful, maybe because Marimba is my alarm clock.

Ozzy and Black Sabbath are back, still as good as ever.
