One of the features I’m most excited about with Xbox 360 is Xbox SmartGlass. While the focus is on tapping into the best entertainment providers right now, the possibilities for this digital canvas will be endless.

A few updates from around the Web for this weekend:
- Sonos is working on their iPad application, but has delayed release from August to September. Launch at CEDIA Expo 2010 imminent? What’s not imminent is an Android-based version of the Sonos controller app currently available for iPhone, confirmed by Dave Zatz. Here’s to hoping Windows Phone 7 gets in the mix.
- Pandora recently launched Genre-based channels. This service keeps getting better and better. 80′s Pop or Today’s Hits? Works with Sonos too.
- Xbox LIVE for Windows Phone 7 has announced the initial lineup of games. A few weeks ago my friend Kevin Unangst showed me a preview of what’s to come and I’m impressed by the portfolio. Here a video overview:
- Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is next weekend here in Seattle. I’ll be going on Sunday if others are interested in a meetup.
- Windows Live Sync becoming Windows Live Mesh, upping from 2G to 5GB of space. It’s a start folks, but I for one want 25GB to backup my photo library and would pay for it.
As reported by CNet, Hotmail will be getting Exchange ActiveSync support on Monday. What does this mean? It means better syncing of your email including folder management, push notifications, delete, and more reliable overall connections between Hotmail, iPhone, Palm Pre, Windows Phone and any other phone including Android that supports ActiveSync or Exchange server connection.
I have used the upcoming feature in testing and can say it worked in my case exactly as advertised. Glad to see the Hotmail team make this investment – surely not a small engineering job.
