Writing on a site entitled "My Digital Life", I'll assume that everyone has an interest in technology to some extend, and most will have smartphones, tablets, notebooks and the like lying around at home. I also assume that many of us are music lovers, and have music libraries worth quite a few days' listening. iTunes is probably in there, if not your primary choice, and with wireless syncing, it makes it a lot easier to manage music throughout your home. And then they leveled up. Enter Airplay..
Ever have one of those bizarre encounters with your PC where you are doodling along, minding your own business and suddenly, BAM, like a bolt of lightning out of the blue your machine reboots and you get one of those "Windows cannot start because..." messages?

I read a rumour last night (and I don't put much stock in rumours, but that said it's always interesting much like gossip is) that the next Xbox may not have a disc drive of any sort.
One of the things that make me question this rumour is the fact that I doubt Microsoft would be so short-sighted as to cut off backwards compatibility with the Xbox 360 and the vast library of games they already have available. This would be very counter-productive indeed.
