AT&T U-verse on Xbox 360 November 7th

We know, we know. Three years of waiting and you AT&T U-verse customers have given up on the thought of your wonderful Xbox 360 being able to be used as a set-top box. We don't blame you. Well, for those who haven't lost the light at the end of the tunnel, call your friends who've hung their heads in shame and let them know that on November 7th these dreams finally come true.

Three years of waiting should be worth it with this news, you U-versers. Everybody else doesn't get cool stuff like being able to use AT&T U-verse on Windows 7 with four HD streams. Damn you, Brighthouse!

There's more things to be jealous on after the break, like pictures of some interesting slides. So hit it.

Hybrid Optical Drives Spin and Store

This new take on optical drives comes from a collaborative relationship between Hitachi and LG. Like most optical drives we're used to, they function as CD, DVD, and Blu-Ray readers/writers but these drives also have the ability to store data in flash memory. More specifically, Micron's 25nm NAND flash memory which currently sits at 64GB or less. The physical size of the drive is 12.77mm making it a good fit for a slim tray.
