XBOX 360 update available now
The much-anticipated XBOX 360 Dashboard update is now available. I grabbed it this morning and have only seen a couple of the 125 new features that MSFT claims are in there -- download queue, XBOX Live Vision camera settings, new menus for XBOX Live Marketplace.

I think my favorite new feature is the "Startup" option that has been added to the "System\Console Settings" menu. Now, you can select to boot to the game you have in the XBOX 360's DVD drive or boot to the Dashboard. Most times, I want to boot to the Dashboard and used to have to mash a bunch of buttons to do it before the game loaded.

So, go fire up your 360s. You will be prompted to install the update as soon as you connect to XBL.
