If you fancy yourself the newest Xbox Live experience, well, you better get clicking.  Today, Microsoft opened up 500,000 beta tester slots, which provides access to the latest Xbox Live dashboard.  Just keep in mind you’ll need to sign an NDA, which is to say you can’t release the info to the public, otherwise Microsoft will sue the pants of you, provided they haven’t already drained your bank account dry from Windows licensing fees over the years.

The update will include not only a new UI, but give you access to Bing Voice Search in more languages, Xbox Music, the new Internet Explorer Xbox app.  There also testing a new Play To option that allows Windows 7 and higher users to natively stream from their PCs to the Xbox.  To sign up hit the source link below, but there is a good chance the slots have already been filled.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
