Xbox 360 USB Drive Now Available

Microsoft has decided to allow USB flash storage to be used with the Xbox 360. You can use a USB stick to save games, profiles, and demos. The only limit is a storage cap of 16GB, which is much less than the hard drives themselves offer. The official partner for supplying Xbox 360 branded USB drives is SanDisk, and the company has now finally released an 8GB and 16GB model of the drive.

According to the official press release, “the new drive makes it easier than ever for gamers to take their gamertags, saved game progress, map packs, Arcade game downloads and bonus content with them for fast and convenient access on another Xbox 360 console.” The 8GB drive will cost $34.99, while the 16GB model sells for $69.99. However, gamers should take note that they do not have to purchase the drives from SanDisk in order to take advantage of the USB storage. Most USB flash drives can be used with your Xbox 360. Using a cheaper model will save you cash, but will cost you that Xbox 360 branding supplied on the official SanDisk model.

You can download any number of programs to put on your favorite USB stick, computer or device from our software center. You don’t even need to use a certain brand to store what you buy.

Love is in the Air for Apple Fans

If you are an Apple fan, nothing would be worse than hooking up with the “perfect” person – only to discover that they are a Windows user. That is likely the biggest deal-breaker of all. Thanks to new service Cupidtino, you’ll never have to worry about this again. The site promises to bring Apple fan-boys and girls together in a relationship nearly guaranteed to last:

Die-hard Mac & Apple fans often have a lot in common – personalities, creative professions, a similar sense of style and aesthetics, and of course a love for technology. We believe these are enough reasons for two people to meet and fall in love, and so we created the first Mac-inspired dating site to help you find other Machearts around you.

This may sound like some sort of weird scam, but it’s very real. The site is set to go live sometime in June, but you can sign up to beta-test it now. I’ve read a lot of commentary about this studly service today, but none of them sum it up better than Mike over at TechCrunch when he said that “Apple fans can be annoying when they’re on their own. The thought of them breeding and creating little Apple fans, a whole family of hard core hipster Apple lovers, is just not a good thing. On the other hand, making sure that Apple fans only date other Apple fans is a good way of stopping them from spreading their Apple fan genes to the general population, I guess. So maybe this site isn’t all bad.”

My only question now is: How soon will we see a Windows-only (and Linux-only) dating site? Which of you are going to step up and start it?
