Xbox SmartGlass

 It seems like Xbox 360 might be taking over the home entertainment battle.
Xbox has it all:The motion controlled Kinect, which now has voice-recognition ability.Its new online music service “Xbox Music”. On-Demand video apps such as: YouTube, HBO Go, Hulu, Netflix, Xfinity, Amazon Prime movies, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, Paramount Movies,  Univisions, NBA, NHL and ESPN.
Other consoles such as PS3 have a number of subscription services, but what they do not have is the amount of apps and the newly announced Smart Glass, which is driving the Xbox to the top. 

Xbox SmartGlass is a Wi-Fi remote app for Windows 8 and mobile devices which interact with the video content and games on the Xbox 360. Once launched the app syncs up with any compatible content offering a way to access additional interactive material while watching a program or playing a game. The SmartGlass can give you additional information about a movie, TV show, cast, and creators while watching a program.
For example, during a movie you have the ability to search for a selected actor to play a different movie the actor was featured in, as well as the option to go straight to the scene or scenes the actor appears.
The best feature of SmartGlass is the ability to stop video content on one device and pick it up where you left off on another.SmartGlass will be available for iOS and Android, as well as Microsoft’s own Window smartphones and tablets.
