Xbox Live Pipeline
Want to know what's popping up on the Xbox Live Marketplace without starting up your 360? Microsoft has launched Pipeline, a Flash-based site that lets you preview the sections normally found on Marketplace (Demos and Game Videos, Themes and Gamer Pics, etc.) plus an "Editor's Choice" section dedicated to promoting specific products. The actual samples are rather limited, but ironically, it's easier to use than the 360's Dashboard interface. The real question is if Microsoft will remain committed to updating Pipeline in a timely manner.
