At home or at the office?

Usually at home, though sometimes the Mrs brings them in to the office if we need something mounted or fixed.

On the bright side, if you screw up it gives you an excuse to buy the controller with the new D-pad, right?

I'm not sure if you should try to open a controller if you don't even know what a torx is.

And this is from someone who is like Phil from Modern Family.

Looks like there's another dashboard update for those of us in the beta.. It's downloading really slow for me, but others have said that ESPN is gone.

Sorry, pinata.

EDIT: False alarm.. It's still showing up on my end, although I do need to download the app again.

Maybe it's the dashboard I got Friday night that no one else seemed to mention.

It looks like our brilliant plan to stop playing Halo 2 (which was helped along by Microsoft's removal of Live support for Xbox 1 games) worked! According to a deleted Facebook announcement from Xbox Germany, the friend list cap on Xbox Live is being boosted from a paltry 100 to a ridiculous 1,000. "How many friends do you have?" the (Google-translated) announcement read. "Not enough? Then you looking for new friends on the Finder tab!" (View the full announcement and translation after the break.)

Strangely, neither the embiggened friend list cap nor the "Finder tab" are present in our preview version of the upcoming Dashboard update. We're still locked in to the smaller, more intimate, friend limit. We're checking with Microsoft now to determine when this update will roll out to you and the masses of people waiting to be muted by you.

Original Facebook announcement (Xbox Germany):

Eine von vielen langjährigen Xbox LIVE Usern gewünschte Änderung war das Limit der 100 Freunde. Mit dem Update könnt ihr jetzt bis zu 1.000 Freunde eurer Freundesliste hinzufügen. Wie viele Freunde habt ihr? Nicht genug? Dann sucht euch neue über den Freunde-Finder-Reiter!

Translation (via Google):
"A lot of long-term change was desired by Xbox LIVE users the limit of 100 friends. With the update you can now up to 1,000 friends of your friends list. How many friends do you have? Not enough? Then you looking for new friends on the Finder tab!"

Screencap (translated version):
That's all well and good, but now we definitely need a way to organize those friends

What good are 1000 friends if you have no way to sort/organize them?

@majornelson: Let me straighten things out: We will not be expanding the friends list as a part of the next Xbox LIVE Update.
So there you go. Glad to hear they still refuse to move forward with increasing that limitation.

Can I just say how much I love being taught what a "controller" is and where the "guide button" is each and every time I get a new update forced upon me? That never gets old.

It is a lot of work to hit that Y button and skip it isn't it.

That's not as fun as being in game.

Yes, I've got you beat in 3 whole songs.

Well sure if they ever taught me what a Y button was, then I'm sure it would be easier to skip.

Duh..you're supposed to tell us it's free and you got it, but not tell us how or where in case it ruins it for everybody else. Don't you know how this stuff works?!
