Saturday 25th May 2013: In the News this Week

It's the week of Saturday 25th May 2013 (I haven't done one of these in a while) and...

Earlier this week XBOX released their next generation games console to compete with the unsuccessful Wii U and the PlayStation 4 (which still hasn't been fully announced yet). However gaming is only one thing which the XBOX one does. It is also lets you watch TV with apps along the side, use Skype and many more apps.
The XBOX One looks similar to Windows 8 and it has some of the features to like the notifications and the snap mode so you can do two things at once.
The biggest gimmick is the voice control; to turn the console on you say 'XBOX on' and then to snap two apps you say "XBOX snap Internet Explorer" (or whatever other app you want to use).
The hardware of the XBOX has been redesigned too. It looks like you can now only store it horizontally and it looks extremely similar to a video tape player from a decade ago. The Kinect has also been redesigned: it now monitors a lot more things such as heart beat and facial expressions, it can watch up to 6 people, it works in the dark and can record in 1080p HD.
