If you want to see how this works with Kinect, you can see a demo of that from Comcast's Tom Blaxland over here.  I'm definitely seeing more value with the voice command capabilities than with the  hand-based gesture controlls. JB

Do you have any favorite commands yet? Sit? Fetch? Pause? Yes, fun to see Tom wave at the xBox. Speaking of Game of Thrones, I see there's a companion app on iTunes.

Actually, "fetch" would be pretty fitting, but a nice way to cut through and find something if you have a title in mind. Beats 37 button pushes to search for a VoD itle using a grid guide. JB

It would be nice to sort content by your channel subscriptions.  Today it doesnt always show you what channel a movie is being carried on, and if you dont subscribe to say Showtime, you cant watch it.  I would like to sort by the channels i am subscribed too.  I realize this takes away my incentive to sign up for more channels but it would make things easier when browsing through all of the content.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
