What happened to Episode 170?
Improved Kinect resolution is great, but I'd image an updated version of Kinect will arrive with the next Xbox allowing even higher resolution.
Viral Tweet stats could be interesting but it might just be used for evil, marketing you more junk. However nothing I ever tweet is worth reading so nothing I say will be in there
The Valve Steam Box is not something for me, but it does look quite interesting and extra competition is always welcomed as it spurs everyone else on!
The best stuff I've seen come out of MS is Photosynth (yeah I know it isn't new this year but it has been updated for WP this year)
Edit: Not forgetting the comeback of Ping and the Question of the Week, that needs to go into MS's greatest things of this year

I agree with you on the phone app. I still use it as my primary on my Droid 2 Global, but that app could use some improvements. Same with the Windows 8 mail app.
Now here is a stupid newbie question for you, but one I've wondered before but never tried to look up. Does the Live Mail (including the mail app on Windows 8) store the emails locally? I wouldn't want to take up space with lots of emails and have to worry about saving them when I get a new machine.
It stores a local copy of the folders you open/sync down via the client to keep an offline cache so you can still read those emails when you are not connected to the net. The email will still always be in the cloud (unless you delete them via the client of course) so you don't have to worry about backing them up or moving them etc.

Kinect is great for kids, but the dancing game might require a more accurate position for dancing to pass the level but Wii you can just flail the remote and do nothing :/ I'm with @ResearchVoyager on trying out Kinect Party and some of the Fun Labs as they have nice little free games in there.
That crime fighting tech looks pretty clever it makes me think of 24, awesome show
It'll be a good day when we get tot he point that we don't have to encourage people to develop apps etc to help empower women and they are on an equal footing until then, keep up the excellent work.
The new Outlook is great, I've been using it for a long time (when ever the preview launched) and it is much cleaner and slicker than the old Hotmail. I've used Hotmail for over a decade now but I've mostly used client software live Outlook, Live Mail or the Windows 8 mail app which I prefer. The one thing that still needs to be brought out of the 90's is the Calendar you have on the Outlook.com site :/

@optimiz3: How do you determine the Easy/Normal/Hard levels on the achievements? Is it based on the number of people who have unlocked it against the number of people who have played the game? Similar to TrueAchievements ?

The dynamic duo are back together! yay
Loving GamerLoop, sweet job mate!
A 7" tablet could be interesting but I'd prefer an RT tablet with a digitizer as that seems to be the only thing missing. Don't want the size/expensive of a full Surface Pro to get pen, a low powered ARM with a digitizer and long battery would be fantastic.

For Valentines day, we had a nice dinner at home and watched a Rom-Com ... then ... well the rest is up to your imagination.

I think you should bring back guest speakers, get some visitors to come on and talk about stuff they do/like
Where is Tina? Adam?
A little Hokey? Do the hokey-cokey! (not sure if that's just a UK thing)
PS Happy Valentines day folks x

I agree with @martinmine about the font, not my taste.
Also, when you expand a topic and choose it, the menu collapses again, is it supposed to do that?

No problem, it also fickers when I do it slow just wanted to make sure in the vid that you could see what I meant. Sorry to be a pain in the *, but you just gotta be what you are good at
