Just another reason for my boyfriend to hurry up and get that Xbox 360 — as if Rock Band wasn’t enough.
Microsoft has just announced a deal that will allow Xbox 360 Live Gold users to play streaming video from their Netflix queues for no extra charge. They will also be able to share and watch the movies with the rest of their friends in their Live party.
I think this is rather big news — and a big partnership. Just another step towards what I envision to be the future, one device for all media and uses — a combo game player/computer/TV/phone/media center.

As part of Viacom’s massive lawsuit alleging copyright fringement, YouTube will have to produce the user logs — including IP addresses and videos viewed — of all the users of the site.
Daily Tech elaborates:
“The court order to turn over site logs came as part of a sweeping request by Viacom, where it attempted to acquire source code for the site’s search engine and copyright video filter – which YouTube wrote as the result of previous litigation with copyright holders – as well as copies of YouTube parent Google’s advertisement database schema, and copies of all videos on the site marked “private.””
