I've made a big decision recently. I'm going to write about my favourite tech stuff on this site every week, and that's about the only thing I'll write about. 


Now, back to the real stuff. Do you know about the Xbox 360? Or better do you own one? Well, the big Xbox fans will be happy to know that a new console was announced by Microsoft about a week ago in Redmond, CA. It's the new Xbox ONE!!! The new Xbox has a new sleek, modern design which reminds us of some sort of TV cable set-top box. That's for a good reason, too. Xbox is now an entertainment, not only a gaming console. It wants to take over your living room (but not in a bad way). It will now allow you to experiecnce TV in a new way, use apps, watch movies, browse the web, watch sports, and multitask with a simple voice command or geture. But, most imporantly, to PLAY GAMES. There wasn't much information about the 15 games coming to the Xbox One at launch. What we do know is that Forza 5 and Call of Duty: Ghosts are going to be awesome and that out of those 15, 8 games will be exclusive to the Xbox ONE.

Next on our agenda: Windows 8 (and 8.1)

Windows 8 is the latest operating system from Microsoft which is so revolutionary, that it changes the game for PC and mobile OSes. Its best feature is the brand new Start Screen. There is no menu, far from it actually. There is a completely redesigned screen featuring Live Tiles (as seen on Windows Phone) who show you the infoermation YOU want, at a glance. It is the very best of personalisation, coming from windows. There are new modern apps and a store for modern apps, which now has over 150,000 apps since it's launc 6 monts ago. I love how the Start screen represents you, puts people in the centre of your attention and content, instead of plain icons. If you don't have it, I immediately reccomend you to try it. Now, I cannot go back to the stupid Start Menu on Windows 7. Here a screenshot of MY Start Screen.

That's it for me for this week. I'll see you in about 1 and a half week, to talk about the new stuff at the E3 Gaming and WWDC Apple conference
