Doodle Jump was one of the first hugely popular mobile games before playing games on your smartphone was ever considered to be cool, and since then, the game has made itself available across a number of platforms. Today, Doodle Jump is making the jump from mobile and desktop PCs to the Xbox 360 as Doodle Jump for Kinect is now available on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Doodle Jump for Kinect uses a combination of the series’ traditional gameplay with a new and intuitive gesture and motion control system, such as stepping, flapping, clapping, and of course, jumping, which makes full use of the Kinect. Not only do you get the Doodle Jump experience you should know by now, but the Xbox 360 version has three original worlds to make your way through, power-ups, boss battles, and additional features such as achievements support.

Doodle Jump for Kinect is available now on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 400MS Points ($5), which we think is a fair price considering how much you’ll probably get out of the game.

facebook hashtags

Facebook finally rolled out support for hashtags earlier this month, which resulted in a tidal wave of users throwing in hashtags for any and every status update they publish. But if you’re a regular mobile user, you may have noticed hashtags aren’t supported yet. Today, Facebook is changing that as they’re not only making hashtags compatible with its mobile site, but they’re also rolling out related searches.

When we say “mobile site,” we of course mean Facebook’s mobile website and not its dedicated iOS and Android applications, so those users will just have to wait until the company rolls out hashtag support for their Facebook apps.

In addition to hashtag support for its mobile site, Facebook is introducing related searches to allow its users to discover new conversations based on a certain hashtag. Facebook will also analyze which terms are often posted together, so something like #equality would also bring up posts tagged with #loveislove or #DOMA. This will certainly add another layer of interactivity with Facebook as it could help you discover hashtags you haven’t even thought of using, which you can then join those conversations as well.

Video game consoles have a wide variety of options users can choose from that provide streaming video services on the fly. The Xbox 360, for example, has Netflix, Hulu and even a FiOS app that allows its users, who are subscribers to the cable provider, to be able to watch live TV from a small selection of channels. It looks like another cable provider will be throwing their app into the Xbox 360 ring as Time Warner Cable has announced it will be releasing its TWC TV app onto the console later this summer.  Read full post →Xbox 360 Welcomes Time Warner Cable Live TV App Later This Summer
