Turn your WinPhone into an Xbox remote

Ben Alderson


I saw elsewhere (the BBC, funnily enough) that iPlayer is coming via an Xbox Live app.

What it doesn't mention though is if you need a Gold account to access it. Anyone know? I'm not paying twice for Beeb content.

User data stolen in Sony PlayStation Network hack attack

Ben Alderson


That's asuming that whoever stole my password doesn't log in first when PSN comes back up and change my password.

I suppose Sony could change all passwords and email users with new ones that require a reset as soon as you log in, but if anyone used the same pass for PSN and their email then...

Can't believe it's taken so long for Sony to notify users of what has happened. This is a major screw up, I'd like to see the ICO take action against them for this. Bastards.
