Xbox 360 Dashboard Preview
Did anyone else get in on the program a couple weeks ago? Signups were only open for a day or so, I believe. This is the preview for the new dashboard that will launch when the Kinect is released in November.
There's also a much more limited Kinect beta that's been going on, for which you get the actual Kinect hardware. I'm not in that, unfortunately, but this is the exact same dashboard; it's just that the Kinect features give an error message for those of us without the Kinect.
I don't like all the white menus, but ESPN3 looks great in HD and is just an amazing (free) feature overall. You get live games, events, highlights, and SportsCenter, plus on demand content. They also added, amongst other things, a long-awaited search option for Netflix, so no more going into the other room and checking the site. My avatar is bigger now, too!
This is awesome.

I didn't even know about this but it looks pretty sweet.
