Happy Birthday!

It was one year ago that released its XBOX Live Friends List widget as a MacOS dashboard application. Three months later, we released an enormously popular web application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Along the way, we added support for Windows Mobile, Blackberry, and Android platforms. When the iPhone SDK hit, we put a great deal of effort into making sure that our native application worked right out the box.

Today, our servers provide users with data for about 1 million active unique gamertags.

It's been a lot of work and a labor of love for the XBOX Live platform. That work most certainly continues. Within a few weeks, our new application will hit the AppStore with dramatic improvements to presentation and usability. We're putting everything we know about the iPhone and iPod Touch platform into the development effort. It's awesome and I can't wait to get it into your hands.

Chomping at the bit to see what it looks like? I've been posting picture and development updates to my twitter. We'll be showing it off in a more formal manner in the coming week or so.

Thank you for your dedicated support and enthusiasm during the past year and...
