Funny List Of Kitchen Gadgets You Can Probably Do Without: The tech site Gizmodo offers a humorous story today highlighting 15 of what they describe as “Insanely Specific Kitchen Gadgets.” It really is a funny list! There is a hot dog slicer for those that would rather not slice hot dogs with a knife, a “Nana Saver” for those that only want to eat half a banana now, hard-boiled egg molds for those who want to have their hard-boiled eggs look like a cat or bear head and even a s’mores maker for those who would rather not squash s’mores ingredients together by hand!

Here’s a link to the article & list:

The Next Xbox May Become The Brains Of Your TV Viewing Experience: The tech site The Verge offers an article today on the next generation Microsoft Xbox which it reports will be sophisticated enough to not only run your cable box but to overlay its own software on top of the cable box menu and channel guide. This new Xbox will also have the ability to sense how many people are in the room and allow people to change or pause whatever they are viewing by eye or hand movement – so your remote may soon be a thing of the past! Just exactly when the next generation Xbox Condole and Kinect Sensor will debut isn’t yet known but even so it will be cool to be able to change television channels or pause video playback simply by moving your eyes or hands!

And The Verge article makes me wonder, yet again, what Apple is working on television wise as my guess is whatever smart television or updated media player they come up with is likely to allow for voice commands; just imagine being able to tell your television to turn on and play the latest episode of your favorite television series by simply saying the words “TV on,” “Play insert-name-of-your- favorite-TV series here!”

Here’s the link to The Verge article which is titled Exclusive: Microsoft’s next Xbox will take over your TV, interact with your cable box:
