Microsoft's latest overhaul of Xbox Live will give gamers more control over who they play with — as well as who they don't. The Cortana-powered Find A Group and Club modes will make it easier to find people who are a good "cultural" match. Whether you hate homophobic and racist trash talk or would prefer to only play with your gender, Xbox Live has you covered. In short, you'll soon be able to erase the gamers you don't want to interact with forever.

At Microsoft's huge Xbox reveal earlier this year, the company made a big hubbub about the 300,000 cloud servers it would be adding to help speed up GPU and CPU heavy tasks.

The Verge reports today that Microsoft will release a set-top box next year alongside its next generation Xbox. The "Xbox TV" will deliver the popular Xbox Live streaming entertainment services currently available on the Xbox as well as some basic gaming. In other words, it'll bring you streaming videos and Angry Birds but not Call of Duty.
