No, that was a misunderstanding of what the guy said. What he said is that they _started out_ as generic VMs capable of running any OS, but now they can only run the XBox OS's they've been customized...

Nope. For one, it was DDR3 before it was 8GB. The 3GB reservation was decided on _after_ they moved to 8GB. It was 1GB (or, technically, 1.5GB including the host OS) before that. And the on-die cache...

Haha! No, like I said, it's mostly subjective, other than the things he said to the Kin team, which were kinda dickish.

That's more a comment on the state of the "audiophile" market than on whether you can tell the difference between two different audioscapes.

If I recall correctly, the GOP on blu-ray encodes can be as much as 48 frames. 2 seconds between full frame encodes.
