Apple users can now stop envying their Android-toting friends as Microsoft now brings the renamed and revamped version of the Xbox Live app called Xbox SmartGlass to iPod Touch (4th and 5th Gen), iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S and 5) and iPad (1, 2, 3 and 4th Gen). Head past the break to know the new features that this app has in tow.

  4. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
