The Agloves people in the US mailed me recently wondering if I'd review their touchscreen gloves. I didn't even have to see them to know that they had come up with a brilliant idea. They popped a free pair in the post to me and I got them earlier in the week. This won't be a long review for the simple reason that they just work, brilliantly.

XBOX users also have access to arguably the best media center application on any platform. XBMC started because the XBOX needed a good media player, but it evolved into something so much larger. Streaming media files from the network with library organization, weather support, XBOX game trainers, a game/program launcher, and an entire build of python to run a plethora of scripts which can be created by anyone. XBMC has been unsurpassed by many other media applications, some of which you must pay for.

Free for Missile Command (a game I never mastered). $9.99 for the lot.
Nothing else needs to be said.
Oooh, just remembered, runs to plug MHL cable into phone so he can play Missile Command on 37″ LCD TV.
Just like the Atari 2600 I never owned with the joysticks I always hated.
