XBox 360 - What happens next...

I read a BusinessWeek article I found on slashdot about the new Playstation3 and all the stuff they said it was going to be able to do. Was it going to confuse the consumer. It got me thinking.

Do you remember all the spin and articles around the XBox360 before it launched and how it was so important to Microsoft? What happened? It's been almost 3 months, I sure they have reports that they've run. Was it as successful a launch as they hoped it would be?

Check out the Trend from Ice Rocket's web site on blog posts concerning the Xbox 360.

Comments and links are appreciated.

Solarwinds - WAN Killer

Just a quick note. If you haven't check out a company named Solarwinds I would suggest it. I've used their Orion server based network monitoring tools for about 3 years now. It just keeps getting better and when you look at the price when compared to some of the others out there it can't be bet.

Also look at their pro tools and check out WAN Killer tool. If you need to generate network traffic for your WAN testing, this is a nice tool.
