My house has become a very sweaty place. No, my air conditioning is fine, I just picked up a Microsoft Kinect, their new motion control device for the Xbox 360.

Well, I've been awaiting this announcement for a while, about Netflix on-demand movies being available via the XBox 360. Thing is, you have to be an XBox Live Gold subscriber to do it.
