So a few companies tried something similar but failed.
The Wii U seemed like a good idea – switch off the tv, only to continue playing on the screen on your controller, and do some more mumbo jumbo there.
The Sony Move concept was an attempt at redesigning the controller and allow gesture like movements to control the game, with boxing / archery and the like being just a couple of options.
However, the xbox illumiroom might actually seem to hit the nail on the head. To sum it up, it allows a separate projector to project the peripheral aspects of the game across your living room, making you feel fully immersed in the game you are playing.
Keep in mind, below is actual, non doctored footage of the illumiroom.

Been reading a couple of articles, but as usual the trusted buddies over at 9to5mac have dropped a possible hint at a new “push-to-talk” function for Whatsapp.
Push-to-talk is basically a walkie-talkie like function.
You push. Then you talk. Simple.
“In a related move, we’ve received a couple of tips that chat app WhatsApp is planning to introduce a push-to-talk function. The first came in the form of an email purporting to be a request from the company to a Hong Kong app developer to translate several new strings into Chinese.”
Notice the mic on the possible new interface below?

Google has just ROCKED my world with their latest move!
Sky News quotes:
Google has recognised the Palestinians’ upgraded UN status by rebranding a local version of its website.
“Palestine” has replaced the words “Palestinian Terrorities” beneath the company’s logo on Google.ps, six months after the UN General Assembly made it a non-member observer state.
The change went into effect on May 1.
Nathan Tyler, a spokesman for Google, said: “We’re changing the name ‘Palestinian Territories’ to ‘Palestine’ across our products.
“We consult a number of sources and authorities when naming countries. In this case, we are following the lead of the UN … and other international organisations.”
Palestine’s elevated status was agreed in November, after UN member states approved the move by 138 votes to nine.
Britain was among 41 countries which abstained.
Palestinian authorities have since begun to use the “State of Palestine” in diplomatic correspondence and issued official stamps for the purpose.
Yigal Palmor, a spokesman for the Israeli foreign ministry, questioned Google’s decision.
“This change raises questions about the reasons behind this surprising involvement of what is basically a private internet company in international politics – and on the controversial side,” he said.
The UN vote gives the Palestinians access to a range of international institutions, including potentially the International Criminal Court, and raises their international profile after years of stalled peace talks with Israel.

Steve Jobs sadly passed before he could design his iCar, so the closest we’ve got so far is Siri Eyes Free on a bunch of cars and now the new VW ‘iBeetle’.
Its really limited to just a few colours, a place to pop your iPhone and a specially designed app to control some stuff in the car. Not that you really need it, but, cuz you can.
According to 9to5mac, You can connect to the Beetle wirelessly or via the docking station thats built into the car, and using the following apps for further integration:
Spotify: lets users stream media such as new songs, customized playlists or online radio stations into the Beetle. Those who wish can post their favorite music directly to friends. In addition, users in the Beetle can switch between “Spotify” and “iTunes” at any time.
Expert: offers five functions which make the iPhone an extended on-board instrument of the Beetle, such as a G-Meter (for measuring lateral acceleration), oil and coolant temperature gauges for the engine, a chronometer, and a compass.
Trainer: can be used to compare driving times, distances, and fuel economy values for different routes between any two destinations. Here, too, tips can be posted via social networks like Twitter and Facebook—such as which route is faster to the office.
Reader: lists the latest messages from social networks like Facebook, and reads iPhone messages aloud.
Postcard: Sends the current location of the Beetle to friends as a digital postcard with a map motif.
Photo: Sends photos taken inside the car to numerous social networks. Simply activate it, and the app does the rest.
Milestones: Available when the smartphone is undocked. Rewards its users with virtual “milestone stickers” for the Beetle when certain tasks have been completed.
It’s essentially the same functionality as Siri Eyes Free coupled to a basic car data interface and a few cute Beetle-specific apps like the postcard feature, but it will likely appeal to the car’s target market – people who like cute things – and to be honest, I guess it is kinda cutesy.
