Microsoft Will Launch Streaming Television on the Xbox This Fall
Streaming television is coming to the Xbox 360, with Kinect integration for searches and more.  When the Xbox 360 was first launched, one of the rumors about its future capabilities included use as a tuner or DVR, but the closest we got was Netflix streaming.  Now it seems that those initial rumors are coming true, even if it's in a slightly different way that we expected.

The latest app from Samsung is one that's incredibly cool - at least if you own a 2011 Samsung Smart TV and a Samsung Galaxy S II. Smart View is a free download that allows you to watch whatever's happening on your TV on your phone over Wi-Fi.  That's not limited to Smart TV applications either.  You can watch Blu-rays, live television, or even videogames - anything that's hooked up to your set.
