Xbox Music Availability for Xbox Live Gold Users

Here’s an interesting something I found out today courtesy of a tweet from @WithinRafael.

If you are an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, then from a Windows 8 desktop, laptop, slate (or whatever your tipple) and from your Xbox, you can access free streaming from the Xbox Live Music service.

You don’t get access to the service from Windows Phone or the ability to download music for offline access for free, and you will require an Xbox Live Music Pass for those features.

Microsoft don’t exactly seem to be ‘sharing’ this information, because the details at http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/music/ don’t exactly scream and shout free stuff.

Get yourself a Nokia Lumia for the free Nokia Mix Radio on Windows Phone and free streaming on your full fat Windows device and your set for free though which I like very much, typing here from my Windows 8 laptop listening to some free David Guetta.

The Danger of Social Networking: Facebook in this Case

So I use social networking sites like Facebook, and hell – I spend quite a lot of time lurking around the Microsoft sites and Windows Live sites which is loosely social networking, but this example just goes to prove two things:

– How dangerous Facebook can be without proper thought
– How stupid this person is.

The article is about a girl who got sacked three weeks after starting a job because she wrote on Facebook about how boring the job is. Now fine the job may have been boring and if you want to tell people on Facebook about it to share your life then great: But if your going to do that make sure first nobody in your friends works for said company or set your permissions properly so that lurkers (like your boss for example) can’t see that message.

If you don’t know how to set your permissions properly this article at AllFacebook will help you: http://www.allfacebook.com/2009/02/facebook-privacy/
