What Has Microsoft Done to Battle the Wii and PS3 Launch?

So the Nintendo Wii and the Sony PS3 are coming out this month, what has
Microsoft done to protect their XBox 360 franchise?
In the few weeks leading to the new consoles the following have been
discovered about the XBox 360.

  • Gears of War is launching.
  • HD Video downloads through XBox Live
  • XBox 360's HD-DVD drive can be connected to Windows XP via drivers.
  • It will be plug and play for Vista.
  • X360 core system to be sold for $100 (rumor)
  • Microsoft to buy Capcom
  • Halo 3 rumors, too bad the Halo movie was scrapped.

Seems to me that Microsoft is running scared and is trying to catch up
to a year that has been squandered.

Xmas Tree Subway Train Layout 2009

Here is the finalized version of the 2009 xmas tree layout using an MTH Premier R40 Subway set, Lionel Fastrack, MTH Graduated Trestle System, and MTH Realtrax Trestle Set.

Here you can see how close the train is to the upper deck when it has to go under.

Here is the upper deck view of the spiral.

And here is the lower deck vantage point.

This was the 1st version, but due to the incline of the spiral it's better to have the train go down on the steep grade.

Hayden Panettiere Tattoo Misspelled?

Hayden Panettiere's tattoo is fully visible in these pictures from Cannes. What we can see is an Italian phrase, "Vivere senza rimipianti". This translates to, "to live without regrets." Unfortunately "regrets" in Italian is "rimpianti."

So it looks like Hayden has at least one regret...

Make sure you put sunscreen on that tattoo
