AT&T Joining OHA?

Do you remember AT&T, the company who thought the idea of a completely locked phone, in the iPhone, would be great? Well, now they have taken a complete 180 and are now considering joining the Open Handset Alliance, whose current major members include Sprint, Google and T-Mobile.

Microsoft Pulls Out the Banhammer Again

Microsoft is stepping up its fight against its own machines. Microsoft will now be looking at the discs themselves inside each console while connected to Live to detect if they are, in fact, exactly as they should be. If not, the console will be banned from the service, based on serial number, not gamertag. In other words, if you get caught, you get to buy a new console. Just don't buy it on eBay, as it is probably also banned already.
