    I use it mostly for work to get out updates for things that are going on or to comment on articles, news and sports.

    Twitter is another Social Media sight... instead of "friending" you "follow"...

    It's a single person account, that let's you say what's in your mind in 140 characters or less "tweet".

    People respond to you by "re-tweeting"

    I guess that describes it... :confused3

    Much like Facebook - I don't tweet either.

    I do once in a while read other peoples tweets to see what they have to say.

    i.e. A lot of Celebrities tweet... so if you want to know what Bruce Springsteen had for breakfast - follow him. :)

    It's called Wii U.

    It comes with a second screen control, HD interface and TVii.

    Looks pretty cool... and just in time for the holiday season... whoda' thunk it?

    Watch the Video link above and decide.

    Kinect is very different, it is a motion capture sensor, so essentially you are the remote.

    The Wii U plays all origianl Wii game, but has new games that will enable a 2nd screen option with the new Wii U controller.

    It also has Wii Tvii - which allows you to stream (HD) from Netflix, HuluPlus, etc... including live tv channels, and allows you to connect to and control your PVR. You can also mark shows as favorites, and recommend them to friends via Facebook, etc...

    Probably the Wii...

    Kinect runs on the XBOX 360... It's just a different set of games.

    Since we already have a Wii... I don't have to rebuy the games.

    Been looking into homes in Sarnia, in case, and man, for what we pay in rent here, we really could make a go of it.Still lots to think about, will come to a decision by Friday. I'd stay union, keep all my benefits etc, but at a higher pay rate. Another thing I'd have to do is break down and get my licence, overcome my irrational fear of driving.

    Biggest thing to overcome though is if I apply and get it, we'd have to prep to move really fast, I'd have only a few weeks before I'd start. not a lot of time to do things.

    Have both, barely have time for either, so likely won't upgrade

    I've been on Twitter for several years, but only really started "tweeting" frequently because I've found so many Disney fans, blogs, etc on there to follow. It's a great way to keep up with stuff.

    I like these forums too but, man... it's hard to keep up with these threads if you dare walk away for an hour. :upsidedow
